Merino Wrap

All our products are locally and ethically made in New Zealand and available exclusively online

We are incredibly proud of our merino fitted wrap.  They really do take all the hard work out of swaddling your newborn baby. 

Remember, wraps are considered blankets for babies!  We recommend using our wraps over our nightgowns or bodysuit which will replace the need for loose blankets for a perfect level of warmth.  

All about our wraps:

Our wrap are so easy to use - Simply slip your baby into the extra wide, hip-health body pocket and wrap the wings around your precious bundle.  The super-soft merino stretches to form a snug fit around your little one, making them feel safe, secure and warm - no folding, zips or velcro required.

  • The perfect fit. Newborn to 3+ months, or until they start to roll over, whichever comes first.  When baby is very little and there is excess length in the body pocket of the wrap, you can easily tuck the fabric under, tie it with an elastic band, or simply tie a knot at the bottom to avoid the possibility of baby slipping down. 
  • Hip-Healthy. Our body pocket is wide enough to allow the baby to actively flex the hips without excessive restraint, while also allowing for good hip abduction and rotation.  Watch the video below to see that the hips can naturally fall into the 'frog position' which helps prevent hip dysplasia.
  • Measurements. The long length measures 65cm from the back of the neck to the bottom of the pocket. The wing span measures 130cm across the full width.
  • Design.  It is designed to be worn with arms in, however, you can easily wear with one or both arms (or hands) out, making it an ideal transition swaddle.

Made it a bundle:

Add a matching knotted beanie - Simply tie the knot to fit your baby's head and adjust the knot as they grow for a perfect fit.  Our beanies will fit from 0-4 months - But don't wear them to bed, as you don't want to risk overheating.

Whats the difference between summer & winter?

Our Summer merino is a perfect option for babies to use instead of cotton ( in fact it weights less than cotton), and is great for layering under winter clothing, so, for example if you have a winter wrap and winter gown, then maybe you might like to use the summer weight for layering underneath. - it will still work the same to keep your baby warm, its just a little lighter.  Summer is also ideal for day-time sleeping.

Our Winter merino is slightly warmer and a great option if you want to layer with lighter weights over the top or don't want to layer much at all. During the warmer months, they might be all you wear over the nappy, and then as the seasons change, you can use to layer as needed such as a nightgown or sleepsuit.

Either option can be safely worn all-year-round and often it just comes down to what colour you like the best.
