Seabirds love a haramaki

Women, Wellbeing and Water with the Seabirds  

A guest post from Seabirds who stock NukuNuku Haramaki in their Wild Swim Shop:

Who are the Seabirds? We are two sea swimmers heading into our 3rd winter of cold water swimming. We loved the positive impact on our mental and physical health, the sense of community and the ‘play’ of cold water dipping. We wanted to spread the swim love but we didn’t want to be a charity reliant on the vagaries of grants and funding.  So we formed Seabirds Ltd and we opened our online Wild Swim Shop. The aim being that we sell high quality swim stuff and profits fund our ‘Wellbeing and Water” courses. Our swim group – Salty Seabirds‘ is currently at over a 1000 members (thankfully they do not all turn up for a swim at once!)

Of course it can really bloody cold in the sea and on the beach as we get changed. The haramaki – or core-warmer as we call it to keep it simple with those new to the idea – as proved invaluable post swim. Mostly (but not exclusively) women, the Salty Seabirds’ fingers tend towards the totally numb in the depths of winter. This is not time for bras. Pulling on a core-warmer is much easier and more effective at warming us up. We can use it to hide our boobs when getting changed on the beach (should we feel the need – most don’t care!)

All profits from Seabirds’ Wild Swim Shop go towards more courses supporting people to get into the sea for their mental wellbeing. When you buy from us you are helping people who need the solace of the sea find it! As we come up to Christmas please think of shopping from social enterprises such as ours so your gift gives twice. Check out our ‘Gifts for Swimmers‘ section for all your swimmy friends and Share the Swim Love 🙂

Core-Warmer reviews from Seabirds’ Website:

I swear by these in the winter – makes a huge difference. Really helps you warm up quicker after a swim. I wear mine ALL THE TIME 🙂 (Elaine, Cumbria)

A small thing that makes a big difference. An essential peice of kit to help you warm up quickly after swim. Lovely quality and a good price. (Samantha, Brighton)

I was sceptical at first but now I swear by these. They can make all the difference when warming up after getting out of the water. Great for period pain too! Shove a mini hot water bottle in there…fantastic. (Sarah)
