Should I wear merino in summer?

The answer is always YES YOU SHOULD WEAR MERINO IN SUMMER!  Why, because it is the perfect natural fibre.  Unlike cotton or polyester, merino is a natural fibre that breathes, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.  All Baby Caterpillar gowns, wraps and sleepsuits are made with soft, lightweight merino that is suitable year-round. And we also have a small collection of Summer merino (which is lite-weight) for extra hot temperatures.

Newborn babies cannot regulate their own body temperature, so merino helps keep them at a constant, comfortable temperature all night.  Even on the hottest nights, the temperature often dips in the early hours of the morning, so merino gives you the confidence that your baby or toddler will be comfortable all night, whatever the temperature.  As a natural fibre, merino also wicks any moisture away from your baby or toddler, without becoming damp and cold as it dries.  Baby Caterpillar prides itself on its generous sizing, which stretches and grows with your baby or toddler, giving you comfort and great value!

My children were the original Baby Caterpillar customers and even though they are now 8 and 10, I still dress them in merino to sleep.  It keeps them warm, without being hot, and also breathes giving them a good nights sleep every night of the year.  We have a beautiful new range of gowns, wraps and sleepsuits that you can check out here.
