Merino Nightgown (Summer)

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

Feel comforted knowing that your little one is being looked after in our lighter weight merino  nightgowns - no matter what the temperature is outside.

We really don't mean to brag, but we honestly believe our nightgowns will be your favorite newborn essential, and they are so well made that you will be passing them down from baby to baby, family to family.

How to wear our nightgowns:

Made from soft warm merino, they are ideal for your brand new baby before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and are a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag.  Depending on the season, we suggest you wear them under our merino fitted wraps and over our bodysuits or singlets.

All about our nightgowns:

  • The perfect fit.  Generously designed to fit from newborn to 6+ months.
  • Measurements. The extra long length measures 64cm from the neck to the bottom, so plenty of kick room and growth.  The front pleats across the chest measure 25cm across and allow for a better fit - and they look stunning!
  • Design.  The drawstring at the bottom to allow for easy access at nappy change time.  And because we use double stitching you won't crack the stitching when pulling closed.  Designed to be simple to get on and off with the envelope neckline.

    Why not add on a knotted beanie to complete the look?

    • Knotted beanie design - 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 newborn - 3 plus months.


      The Charcoal Bunny Print is available on PRE-ORDER only.  We are expecting these to be sent out the first week of November.  

        What is the difference between our Summer and Winter merino.
        Our Summer Merino
        • 150-165gsm
        • Ultra-soft & ultra-lightweight merino
        • Ideal for Spring/Summer, but can be safely worn all year round
        Our Winter Merino
        • 190-220gsm
        • Ultra-soft merino
        • Ideal for Autumn/Winter, but can be safely worn all year round

        If you select the 220gsm merino, it it be slightly warmer than the 195-200gsm - but still feel ultra soft and not at all bulky - warmth without the weight!

          Caring for Merino
          • Wash dark colours separately
          • Allow 5% shrinkage
          • Machine wash 40°C max, gentle wool cycle, or hand wash
          • Use wool approved detergent
          • Do not use bleach, nappy cleansing agents, garment brighteners or fabric softeners
          • Do not soak or spot clean
          • Dry flat away from direct sunlight
          • May be tumble dried - low heat

            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.

            Why is Swaddling important?

            We all learn very early in pregnancy that we should swaddle (or wrap) our newborn babies, but do we really know why and more importantly, how to do it SAFELY.
