<a href="http://www.novanatural.com/category.phtml?category_id=650" target="_blank">Nova Naturals</a> has woolen unders, sleepers, rompers, etc for babes, as well as for children and adults. I have never ordered from them, we are just starting out, but they have a good selection <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My daughter buys most of her children's clothes from the local used clothes store. She also buys online from a variety of sources (Hanna Anderson is one company, L.L. Bean is another). It depends on what you can afford!<br><br>
The fundamentals: natural fibers where practical (snow pants, for example, need to be made out of synthetics); wool undies in the winter if you live in a cold climate; and as far as humanly possible--NO LOGOS.<br><br>
Have fun!

Hanna Andersson and Talbots Kids are our staples for plain (or simple, non-character designs), cotton clothing in nice colors. HA carries organic cotton, too. At the end of each season, both HA and Talbots have hugely discounted sales and we stock up for the next year. I also buy lots of NWT and EUC Hannas on eBay.<br><br>
HA is really our favorite, because the clothing generally fits for more than one year and when it is finally outgrown it is still in great shape and I can sell it to friends or consignment shops.

I like babystyle (online or they have a small number of stores) and Zutano (online or at baby boutiques) for simple, solid shirts and pants of great quality, with no characters or logos. They are also fairly well-priced. I also love the Disana organic long underwear and hats, as well as the LLamajama wool longies--great if you cloth diaper, or even if you don't! Tiny Birds Organics (online) is a great source for the organic wool clothing, hats, booties, etc., as well as Nova Naturals. Also, our Waldorf school has festivals a few times a year with toys, arts, crafts and clothing booths--also a great source. You might check with your school and see if there's anything similar.

I live in the desert, so don't have to worry about warm clothes too much. I buy a lot of stuff from Lands End (online). Their clothes are good quality and not too expensive. They have a lot of nice cotton shirts and pants in basic solids or stripes. Sears is another good place, especially if you need something sooner than mail order.<br><br>
I haven't even approached the world of organic clothing yet...still trying to get our food budget under control after switching to all organic there (which for me is a higher priority).
