The cross-over neck line ensures ease of use and a perfect fit around your babies chest. A functional design enhanced by superfine merino which insulates and absorbs body moisture. It is soft, lightweight and durable and non irritating against young sensitive skin.
It breathes and controls moisture
A unique feature of merino is that it absorbs perspiration from the skin and releases it into the air. This means your child will never feel clammy since humidity between skin and garment is lowered.
It controls temperature
Merino fibre actively regulates temperature, protecting your baby from extremes because it keeps him warm when its cold, and cool when its hot.
It reduces allergies
Superfine merino is soft and silky and does not itch your babys skin. Because it has the ability to respond to changes in temperature, its amongst the most comfortable material you can put your baby in.
It improves sleep routines
Merino has been linked with a lower incidence of skin allergies. Medical studies have proven that merino improves the sleep patterns of babies and infants. At the Cambridge Maternity Hospital in 1979, Scott and Richards revealed that babies sleeping on merino settled more quickly, cried less, fed better and gained weight faster.
Premature and low weight babies thrive in merino
The same medical studies investigating the effect of merino on low birth weight babies found that they gained an extra 10g a day compared to babies that werent sleeping on merino.
Swaddling with merino
A number of studies have shown that swaddling babies tends to reduce the likelihood of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Since overheating has been identified as a key factor in many cases of SIDS there is a strong case for using merino because of its previously noted ability to regulate heat and humidity.
Its comfortable and easy to care for
Merino fibres contain a silky outer layer, making them soft to the touch, and less likely to irritate sensitive skin. Our merino is a finespun fabric, making it soft and comfortable to wear. It has a natural elastic property, meaning our garments fit snugly every time.
Merino is naturally fire resistant. It doesn't readily catch fire and even when it is burned, it self-extinguishes when the source of flame is removed. When merino is exposed to flame it doesn't melt and stick to the skin like synthetic fabrics. That's why fire-fighters' uniforms incorporate merino. In contrast, synthetic fabrics present a high fire danger and are often required to be treated with fire-retardant chemicals which can irritate sensitive skin.
