Why Merino?

We only use 100% New Zealand made super soft merino which used against your babies skin will help absorb and release moisture and trap or circulate air as needed to regulate the temperature.  Merino will keep your baby warm in winter and cool in the summertime.  Merino is an ideal fabric to use if you suffer from skin sensitivity and because it is natural it is the perfect loving touch. 

Why Cotton?

100% pure and natural cotton makes for perfect summer time sleeping.  Velvet to the touch, there is nothing purer to put next to your newborn babies skin when sleeping during the warm summer months, when greater airflow is needed.

It works great together with merino for added softness, breathability and durability.  Cotton is also extremely easy to take care of. 


Merino swaddle blankets




Our blankets are made to match our beautiful merino sleeping bags, gowns and wraps. We use two layers of pure, natural fabrics - one side is merino, and the other side is 100% cotton, then we bind both together to form the purest merino and cotton bedding around.

All our beautiful blankets can be used in the bedroom or when you are out and about.


  • 100% pure merino to help keep baby warm in winter - cool in summer
  • 100% natural cotton for added softness and breathability
  • Small swaddle blanket - sized to fit perfectly as a travel blanket or in the car or capsule - 85cm x 60cm
  • Large blanket - sized to fit a standard cot - 110cm x 100cm

And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our blankets are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting).

Designed and made in New Zealand using 100% pure natural fabrics.

  • I have used several different types of swaddles (or wraps as you call them) over the course of my 3 children, but I just had to email you and let you know that I love your one the most.  It really is so easy to use and fits for much longer than the other merino ones I had.  I have finished having children now, but I will be telling anyone who needs a swaddle for a baby to buy your ones.

  • Thank you for my sleep. I LOVE YOU! I received one of your baby merino swaddles for a baby shower gift, and finally my beautiful baby girl slept through for more than 2 hours at night. I had always wrapped her, but she always managed to get her arms and legs out and then wake up. Having the pocket thing meant she could not get her legs and feet out, then I just had to wrap her arms, and she stayed like that all night long. I will be getting a sleeping bag very soon
