Getting The Right Size

As ScratchSleeves are a new and novel product, conventional children’s clothes sizes do not always align. This is why we came up with our own method of ensuring that you can obtain a pair of ScratchSleeves that fit your baby or child.

You will need to measure your child’s ‘wingspan’. Put one end of a tape measure in the centre of their back, between the shoulder blades, and measure the distance from there to the tips of their fingers. Double this measurement to calculate the wingspan. Our sizing tends to run large so we suggest refraining from buying a larger size even if your child’s wingspan is close to the top of the size range.

We are always happy to exchange unused items. So if you do inadvertently order the wrong size, just drop us a line or give us a call to arrange. Please note that as we use natural fibres, we expect our products to shrink by around 4% in the first few washes. This is factored into our sizing.
