frequently asked questions

are the little mud co. items waterproof?

we have two different product ranges. our splashproof wild flower collection is water-resistent. this collection is perfect for all seasons and should be kept with you all year round. we designed this collection for the smallest explorers, which meant we wanted a lightweight and flexible fabric that didn’t restrict little ones. they are perfect for light water play, splashing in puddles and rolling around on damp grass. they are water resistant and are prefect for keeping those muddy knees at bay. our waterproof stormy fields collection is fully waterproof with a special lining. this collection is the same sustainable fabric as our splash proof range, but with the added bonus of waterproof lining on the inside so it can protect your little one from getting wet. this collection is ideal for the more extreme conditions in autumn/winter when those really messy and wet activities take place.

so, regardless of what adventure you are embarking on, we have your little ones covered, literally, from head to toe.

where is the best place for my explorer to use the little mud co. items?

we both have ‘busy’ kids and learnt very quickly that they love being outside. busy kids don’t care if it’s wet outside, they want to go to the park to crawl around on grass, sand or tanbark - even when it’s wet. the stages of crawling and first steps can become so dirty for little explorers, which is why protecting their clothes and them is so important.

how do i clean the little mud co. items?

a simple wipe down with a wet cloth is the preferred method as this is quick, simple and uses less water and energy. however, if your adventurers get a little messy then we recommend you hand wash or use a cold gentle machine wash cycle only. always hang or dry flat before folding your items back up and storing into the mud pocket. avoid harsh detergents, warm/hot water or the dryer. our sustainable fabrics don’t like heat.

how do i know what the best size is for my explorer?

as a first step, we suggest you have a look at our size guide for measurements, which can be found under each product. this will give you some basic length measurements. our sizing is based on age and our pieces are a generous fit. if you have any doubt we suggest sizing up, you can have peace of mind that we have designed our garments to fit without too much extra fabric.

our pants have a drop/harem crutch, which means you can pull them up higher if they are too big, but will also help give extra room to children with a long torso.  the elastic ankle cuffs means you can wear a larger size but the pants won’t fall past the feet.

can i find little mud co. at any retail stores?

absolutely! check out our stockist page to see which gorgeous stores you can find our pieces in. be sure to check back regularly as we are constantly expanding.
