Cotton layering helps active kids the beat wintry chill

With winter's nip now in the air, keeping your child dressed in breathable, comfortable cotton layers is the best way to beat the cold.

“Smart layering is key for keeping your children warm,” says Linda DeFranco, Director, Product Trend Analysis, Cotton Incorporated. “Cotton layers are both breathable and comfortable, and because cotton is a natural fiber, it's perfect for children with sensitive skin.”

DeFranco advises relying on classic layering techniques, like a blue striped waffle-knit tee from Gap Kids under one of Old Navy's Multi-Stripe Jersey Polos. For girls, long v-neck cardigans from Gap Kids can be layered with J.Crew's whimsy waffle tops from their crewcuts line. Cotton leggings provide warmth under denim mini-skirts, and short-sleeved tunic dresses from Hanna Andersson can be layered over long-sleeved t-shirts and under lightweight cotton cardigans from L.L. Bean.

“Cotton layers are ideal for keeping your children warm when the temperature drops, but also ensures that they don't become overheated, either,” says DeFranco. “Choose cotton basics like zippered hoodies, cardigans, and tees that can be added and removed easily, so keeping your children warm doesn't turn into a struggle.”

Accessories are also important. Don't forget the hats, mittens and scarves; 50% of all body heat is lost from the head alone. Hanna Andersson's All Smiles cotton hat and mitten set, and Gap Kid's reversible cotton beanie, are ideal choices.

Cotton Incorporated, funded by U.S. growers of upland cotton and importers of cotton and cotton textile products, is the research and marketing company representing upland cotton. The Program is designed and operated to improve the demand for and profitability of cotton.
