These days the temperature here at “the top of Oslo” has dropped below zero degrees Celsius. And here in Norway we have a saying: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”. Being a mother with maternity leave I have a lot of time off to walk with BabyS in her stroller – in the increasingly colder weather. Well the other day a friend of mine recommended Pierre Robert Wool Collections tops.
What I love about these tops…
the design is plain and simple…no granny-feeling here.
They are available in beautiful colors…(I think I have all the available colors already-shhh don’t tell DaddyO)…I’ve seen these colors in the stores: black, nature (an off-white nuance), brown, grey, aqua (a marine blue version) and color I think is called port (a dark purple-red-ish color).
They are also available in sleeveless and with long sleeve…whatever rocks your boat.

One of the great qualities of wool is its’ ability to transport away moisture, thereby keeping you warm.
Wool also has a self-cleaning ability, so if you just air out after use you can use the clothes more than a day before washing. Perfect for a new mum like me…finding time to do the laundry isn’t always easy with a baby around. Or is that just me procrastinating???
Only down side I can come up with, is the price. Wool clothing isn’t particularly cheap here in Norway, and Pierre Robert isn’t an exception. But they are widely available, as they are available in most convenience stores. Some stores also have regularly sales on Pierre Robert clothes, so checking around can save you some money.
These days I don’t go anywhere without one of these underneath… Have you tried Pierre Robert Wool Collection? What do you think about the clothes available?
