WHY IS MERINO BEST FOR BABY?

Merino is nature’s best! It is a wonder fibre that has evolved over a million years to help us create the perfect sleeping environment for young children.

The main benefit of merino is its incomparable ability to maintain a comfortable micro-climate between body and bedding. Unlike synthetics, Merino breathes and controls moisture meaning that it has the natural ability to respond to changes in temperature. This unique garment property helps keep young ones cool when it is hot and warm when it is cold.

 

PROPERTIES OF MERINO WOOL
    TEMPERATURE REGULATING

    Merino is an active fiber which takes in factors such as the wearer's body temperature and external conditions. In cold conditions your merino thermals will keep you warm and in warm conditions they will keep you cool.

    MOISTURE RESISTANT

    Merino wicks moisture away from the skin and into the atmosphere meaning you'll be kept drier for longer. Merino can absorb up to 35% of its own weight before feeling wet!

    ODOUR RESISTANT

    The lanolin in merino wool prevents mildew and bacteria from building up on your clothing and any odour molecules are absorbed into the merino fibre stopping the build up on unpleasant odours.

    UV RESISTANT

    Merino wool have a UV factor of between 30 and 50 UVP because the fibres absorb UV radiation throughout the entire UV spectrum, adding a layer of protection against harmful rays.

    LONG LASTING

    Although merino wool clothing tends to be more expensive than synthetic fibres it will last a lot longer meaning you won't have to repurchase every few months. Merino wool fibres can bend over 20,000 times without breaking so won't lose shape or get holes.

    SOFT & COMFORTABLE

    Merino wool is super soft against the skin and unlike traditional wool it doesn't irritate or itch the skin. The merino fibres are so fine that when they come into contact with the skin they bend. Merino is also hypoallergenic meaning it's great for babies with eczema and allergies.
