These are the comfiest sweats I’ve worn — and they’re from a sustainable children’s brand
It’s all thanks to the organic cotton.
Fed up with fast fashion industry's egregious plastic waste and pollution, my husband and I vowed several months ago to only support sweatshop-free, sustainable brands. While I was unsure which of us would crack first, I was delighted to be gifted this pair of pajama pants from Hanna Andersson. I knew the brand primarily makes children's clothes with a distinctly Scandinavian design aesthetic, and I learned it also offers pajamas for adults.
I knew purchasing an organic cotton garment would be one tiny step toward environmental sustainability, but I didn't know it'd also make such a difference in my comfort and sleep.
The pants: Hanna Andersson's organic cotton long john
These pants fit flawlessly — the ankle cuffs are skimming, not constricting, with enough room in the hips and seat, too. Though I used to insist on only wearing oversized pants to bed, this slim-fitting pair has officially replaced my baggiest pair.
But the fabric was the real star here. The organic cotton is so smooth and seamless, it almost feels like wearing nothing — except warmer and cozier. I honestly was almost lulled to sleep that night by the pant’s silky feel alone.
The adjustable drawstring keeps them from slipping down, a plus for nighttime yoga.
What makes Hanna Andersson sustainable?
Many Hanna Andersson garments are made of organic cotton and meet OEKO-TEX standards, which means they're free of more than 350 chemicals including formaldehyde. The brand says it's working toward GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification.
Though the brand touts its sustainability, I was disappointed to see a plastic tag, though this is an industry-wide problem and not exclusive to Hanna Andersson.
These are hands down the softest pajama pants I've ever worn. And with baby, kids and toddler options, I might just upgrade my son's PJ game — if they could help me fall asleep, there's a chance they'll help my teething toddler sleep better too. I can dream, right?
