Shiloh has a skin condition called Vitiligo where she has areas on her skin without pigment. These areas are highly susceptible to sunburn and she has to be very careful when she is outside. Having this skin condition doesn't stop her from loving the sun and playing outside. Great companies like Little Leaves make it even easier for her to enjoy being outside, and being safe.
Wearing long sleeves is ideal for Shiloh because she doesn't have to cover up with chemical laden sunscreen (which needs reapplied constantly). Can you imagine wearing long sleeves in the summer though? It is Hot!
Kids sun UV protective clothing gives the protection from the sun, without the weight and heat of typical long sleeved clothes.
She loved her sun protective Chameleon shirt. She reminded me that Rapunzel had a pet chameleon. This shirt comes in girl sizes 2-10. Little Leaves also carries pants to match in both boys and girls.
The fabric is made from 67% bamboo.
Bamboo is also:
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Odor resistant
- More durable than traditional cotton shirts
- Absorbent (moisture wicking) - absorbs 4 times more moisture than cotton
- Ultralight- weight is perfect for everyday wear
- Cooler than traditional fabrics of similar weave, more breathable than 100% cotton
- Environmentally friendly and chemical free - bamaboo does not need pesticides or fertilizers to grow
Shiloh wears her shirt very often. I really need to get her another one as well as the pants. The fabric is so incredibly soft! I look forward to Little Leaves expanding their line with additional fun prints.
