Bear with us, while we update our website

We will be removing all bundle packages for the next little while, as we are running out of different parts of these due to our inability to get new stock at the moment. But don’t panic we will instead add a discount on all our single products, so you can mix and match yourself and still get them as a good price.  xx

How MERINO works xx

 Merino Wool and Babies - Try to forget everything you know about wool - when it comes to newborn babies MERINO WOOL is the only choice. It doesn't matter if it's the heat of Summer or the cold of Winter, merino will work, like magic, to regulate your newborn's temperature, especially for the all important first 12 weeks when they can't do it for themselves.  Merino is soft and gentle, lightweight and durable and won't irritate delicate newborn skin.  Please, we beg you, wear Merino 365 days of the year!!
