  • Temperature & Layering

    Merino is unlike any other fabric, natural or synthetic. This special wool is a powerful natural thermo-regulator for the body, warming and holding heat in when the ambient conditions in the room are cold, then doing the exact reverse to cool the body down if excess heat is present.

    As with all layering guides, use the below as a starting point - and be sure to check your little one often (feel behind the neck or on the chest - a lukewarm feel is what you are looking for). With newborns, they take time to develop their circulatory systems, so can vary quite a bit in terms of their sensitivity to temperature at first - and Merino will really help with that - even so, if you feel your little one needs more or less layering than this guide suggests - stick with natural breathable fibres and follow your intuition on that

    The below are recommended as to be worn/used in addition to the swaddle

    16 - 18 As for 18 - 20°C but add an extra vest or top underneath the PJs
    Merino & Sleep

    What does it mean when we say that Merino improves sleep quality?

    It sounds a bold claim but it really is true. Merino wool has a hidden magic that makes it different to any other fibre on earth. Superfine Merino has a superior ability to breathe and naturally regulates both moisture and temperature, trapping thousands of tiny air bubbles in and creating a cosy micro-climate around your little one and to keep them comfortable and feeling 'just right' all night.

    The ability to detect when heat is building up 'too much' is unique to Superfine Merino. When temperature changes in the environment occur a subtle but very powerful natural process occurs within the fibres of the wool (the wool geeks will want to know that this is called 'heat of sorption and/or desorption depending on which way the heat is flowing'). Heat is actively conserved or released depending on the conditions (mother nature we love you).

    It is thanks to these incredible natural attributes that studies show sleep patterns improve when sleeping in Merino. Babies who sleep in merino have been found to settle more quickly, sleep more deeply, spending longer in the deep restorative phase of sleep where growth and development occurs and overall spent longer asleep.

    Ethical Wool

    Wool is a naturally sustainable fibre that, unlike most plant based 'eco' fibres needs minimal processing to turn it into the supersoft garments for your little ones. We source our 100% Traceable wool from ZQ certified regenerative farms in New Zealand. Sheep are naturally free range, never mulesed and experience the highest levels of animal welfare in the world. Find out more about ethical wool or about our solar powered factory in the English Lakes, our Zero waste project, eco packaging and sharing initiatives here

    Play All Day

    Merino naturally regulates body temperature in balance with the seasons and is super versatile. By day, base-layer it under outerwear in the winter for breathable warmth without the bulk, leaving them free to move and play. Merino gives true next-to-skin cosy comfort that keeps them warm even if they get wet. In summer worn alone it keeps little ones cool & dry and offers natural UPF 50 protection

    Sleep All Night

    The magic of Merino is found in its remarkable and unparalelled ability to regulate and balance out body temperature - putting an end to the worries of overheating on the highs or chilly 3am lows.

    Even more magical, studies show that little ones sleeping in Merino spend far longer in the deepest phase of sleep, where growth and development occurs. In Merino, you'll notice your little one settles more quickly, sleeps more deeply and for longer.
