Merino Composition
Because babies spend so much of the first few weeks sleeping, it's important to dress them in natural fabrics like pure merino.  Sleeping with merino against their sensitive newborn skin will keep them at the perfect temperature each and every sleep.

          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.
