Miou :: Certified Fair-Trade Children's Knitwear {Giveaway - Ends 2/7}

 I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

With each season I strive to find an extra special piece or two to add to Buddy's wardrobe. For children's clothing though, impeccable quality can often be hard to come by. With Miou, a certified fair trade children's knitwear company, I know I can find a gorgeous classic piece that will not only last, but can be passed down to another child too.
For designer quality and simply exquisite style for your small bambinos age 0 to 5, look no further than Miou. Based in Gibsons, BC, Canada, their knitwear is designed by owner Christine Dubin, and hand-knitted by traditional artisans in Peru. Miou believes that children's' fashion can be a force for good on the planet, and provides fair wages for their workers who are even able to work from home and still care for their children or grandchildren. Providing these amazingly talented women with this opportunity allows their families to thrive in a very sustainable way.

 When I opened the package that held Buddy's new Cable Cardigan with Hood I let out a big gasp of excitement! I could hardly believe how soft this cardigan is and how beautiful it is in person.

I really like the cable detail of this sweater, and also the pom pom on the hood as well. The hood is a bit pointy, which I think is adorable and adds a unique touch to this style. I'm happy to note that the size 4-5 fits Buddy well despite him being very tall for just turning 5. This cardigan will easily fit him this Fall into next Winter too.

Unlike an itchy wool sweater you probably tried to wear during the holidays, this one is made from 100% baby alpaca wool that is incredibly soft and definitely not itchy. This natural material is relatively elastic, allowing for room to grow. It bounces back quite well after being stretched or pulled around too.

Buddy can often be fickle about certain materials on his skin, but this sweater is very soft and not irritating for him at all. He also says it's very warm, so it's been perfect for chilly evenings out. It's sophisticated for nicer occasions, but basic enough for just about everything else. It's a staple for every wardrobe!

My English grandmother is an avid knitter herself. Because of this I can easily recognize a high quality knitted garment when I see one, and the skill level required. Miou clearly employs only the best, and the flawless quality is incredible to touch and feel.

Miou is making a difference through their beautiful knitwear, fair wages, and eco-friendly alpaca wool. To learn more about Miou and their clothing, please visit
