Merino Long-Sleeve Bodysuit (Summer)

Ideal for Spring/Summer babies but can be safely worn ALL YEAR round

Our lighter weight merino long-sleeve bodysuits are for parents who want their babies to wear nothing but natural fibres directly against their skin. 

These are truly the best lightweight merino long-sleeve bodysuits you will find.  Soft and warm, and beautifully designed to be worn against the skin underneath whatever you want. Our lightweight merino is a perfect option for babies to use instead of cotton ( in fact it weights less than cotton).

How to wear this product:

Our classic merino long-sleeve bodysuit are sized perfectly to fit right from the start of life.  They are a great one piece to use fitted against delicate skin, without adding bulky layers for the first few months of life up to 1 year. With strong nickel-free domes along the bottom, nappy changes are easy. Plus our bodysuits are simple to get on and off with the envelope neckline.

During the warmer months, they might be all you wear over the nappy, and then as the seasons change, you can layer up or down as required.

  • Merino long-sleeve bodysuits are perfect as a base layer for 365 days of the year for babies. Mix and match with your favorite wrap, nightgown or sleepsuit.
  • Generous through the body length, so you don't grow out of them to fast.

        Merino Wool & Babies

        Merino should be used for all newborn babies 365 days of the year for night-time sleeping. In fact on those warmer nights, it works BETTER than cotton to help regulate temperature and keep your newborn baby cool. Newborn babies can not regulate temperature for around 12 weeks of life - this means they might be cold even when it's hot in the house. So it is really important to use merino against the skin so the merino garment can do the job for them.
