MERINO – THE HEALTHY CHOICE FOR BABY:
Even with all of the incredible man-made discoveries and advancements, when it comes to your baby, it’s still best to start with nature. Merino wool truly is nature’s miracle – its warm, soft breathable fibres will keep your baby comfortable and safe.
Insulation is the key to merino. All those little pockets of air create a perfect atmosphere around your baby’s body, keeping warmth in on cold days, and even cooling them down on a hot day. It takes a while for an infant to develop effective body temperature regulation – merino clothing and sleepwear provide the insulation they need while they are tiny.
Warm and breathable, merino wool fibres trap warm, dry air, and release moisture. This magical combination of properties has been scientifically proven to help your baby stay peacefully asleep throughout the night. They’ll stay warm as it gets cooler, and won’t overheat.
KEEPS ITS SHAPE:
Wash it, put it on your active baby and see it stretch and grow. Merino fibre has a ‘memory’ that makes it spring back into shape after each wash.
Merino wool has the almost-magical ability to both absorb moisture (30% of its weight) and also dry quickly so your baby stays dry and warm. It naturally has hypoallergenic properties making it perfect for most babies with eczema, allergies or sensitive skin – no itchiness or skin rashes!
Not all merino is created equal – New Zealand merino fibres are whiter, stronger and longer than anywhere else in the world.
STAIN RESISTANT AND REPELS ODOURS:
The natural structure of merino fibre makes it resist smells, dirt and stains. You can wash and dry it many times, and even refresh your baby’s outfit just by giving it an outdoor airing. It’s fast-drying and dust resistant too.
Merino is the safest fabric for your baby. While other fabrics burn, Merino doesn’t burn or melt when exposed to flame – it chars a bit and then goes out. Merino also has natural UV protection from the sun’s rays.
NATURAL & RENEWABLE:
Merino fibre comes from a sustainable, renewable source – merino sheep. Every year they eat grass and grow their wool so you can have the fibre that is not only great for your baby, but for the environment too.
