SINGLETS (STD Weight Merino)

The best merino singlet on earth.

This is a wardrobe essential, and perfect for any season for layering against the skin or to just wear alone with a nappy in the very warm nights.  It's made from pure merino and is breathable and super soft, which newborn babies so desperately need to regulate their temperature.

Because we know you will need more than one of these layering essentials - at the very least one in the wash and one on the go, we have added an option to save on bulk purchases.

Singlet Design:

Our New Zealand made merino singlets are not only incredibly comfortable they are also very practical.   Perfect for layering during the coldest months under our merino nightgowns or sleepsuits, and they work brilliantly under our popular merino fitted baby wraps.  When the temperature starts to change, these singlets can be worn alone against the skin with just a nappy.

The classic style singlet is made for layering and is an essential piece of clothing for extra warmth for your newborn.

  • Available in three generous sizes - nb-3mths, 3-6mths, 6-12mths
  • Extra long through the body, so you get coverage all the way to the nappy area.

Use Merino against the skin for layering:

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.

Merino will draw the moisture away from your newborn delicate skin when warm and then as the temperature drops (between 3-5am) the merino will push the warmth back into the skin - so they don't wake up because they are cold. If merino hadn't been invented by nature, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was invented by magic. 

This Pure Merino babywear is exclusively available online and just like all our Baby Caterpillar products, is made to machine washable on a wool cycle, using wool approved detergent.
