Keeping Warm with Mountain Warehouse - Review

Just before we went away glamping, I was chatting with Mountain Warehouse about the chilly evenings and mornings on the farm, so they kindly offered to send me some bits to keep us warm.

We were sent some fabulous merino wool base layers that we could wear both as pyjamas and under our clothing if it was cold in the day.

They proved to be a hit, with the bright colours making sure that the children wanted to wear them, I was a bit worried about the wool being itchy on their skin but they both loved wearing them and the stretch gave them the freedom to run about. They even wore them to pop down to the chickens and check for eggs in the morning without the need for any clothing on top.

Not at any point did they need any extra blankets on their bed and both were quite happy to get up and run around in morning without extra layers. We were lucky to have sunny days so they didn't need to be used as base layers but they'd be perfect if you were going somewhere cold and needed to put clothing on top after you'd got up.





I get cold quite easily but thanks to the merino base layer and Hebridean melange fleece hoody I was kept snuggly and warm on those cool mornings, it hasn't left my side since and I have been wearing it every evening at home instead of turning the heating up.

As we sat on the edge of the pod decking looking at the sheep, it made me realise how well insulated we all were and that the pyjamas had done their job.


We were also sent some other goodies including a fabulously huge beach towel, which proved handy for some sandy toes and hands and to wrap round us on those cooler beach moments, as well as a super cool flying missile, the children both spent hours throwing this to each other, trying to get it to whistle.

Mountain warehouse also have a range of Steve Backshall clothing, which my son, who is a massive fan, absolutely loved. He jumped with excitement when he saw them and has loved wearing them ever since, he lost a tooth whilst we were away hence the cheeky closed mouth smile.


Thank you to Mountain Warehouse for sending us these goodies to keep us warm during our trip, we'll be using them to head out into the garden for some weekend outdoor breakfasts and hopefully if we get some camping gear they will come in handy too.

NB: We were sent these items to form the review, all words and opinions are my own.

  1. I love those stripey base layers and merino wool is just the best isn't it? My little ones have their merino wool pieces but I'm starting to think I should get some for me as I also feel the cold!

  3. I hear merino wool is just the most lovely thing to wear and those stripey under layers are lovely. I might look into it for next year's skiing. Thanks.

  4. They look like great base layers. I love the colourfulness of them. Maxi wears base layers a lot and often instead of PJ's in the winter.

  5. We go camping and glamping quite frequently and I've never really thought about base layers before, we tend to pack extra jumpers. These sound great though x
