1. Chemical-Free: Certified organic products are nearly always free from chemicals, something more and more parents tell us they do not want around their baby (especially when sleeping). By using natural alternatives such as wool (a natural fire retardant for example), parents can be rest assured that their baby is sleeping in a safe, natural environment.


A lot of the products we sell are traditional and simple in design and manufacture. We feel as a company that hand making products like our mattresses fits with this ‘traditional’ way of working. It also provides something much more personal for the customer and we find that the staff involved in the manufacturing process often go that extra mile to ensure the quality is correct (something that machines aren’t able to do!).

so special is the flexibility

that customers can have any mattress, any size or shape which in today’s environment is becoming increasingly popular as parents turn to older, handed-down cots and cribs that are no longer the conventional size.


Why are organic products better? Firstly, it is important to know that organic means different things to many people and so the benefits of going ‘organic’ can also vary between people. Having said that, there are common reasons why we believe buying organic and natural products is better for babies:


2. Quality: When The Little Green Sheep was launched, the focus was and still is on product quality. It was this obsession to find the best quality baby products that originally led us to more natural and organic alternatives and it is something that we still find today.


3. Environment: Through using sustainable materials like wool and coconut fibres (in our mattresses) and avoiding the use of chemicals such as pesticides, we can ensure that we are able to manufacture for years to come without damaging the environment for future generations.
