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.

Need more convincing?

  • All our garments are completely designed and made in New Zealand using 100% pure natural fabrics such as ultra soft merino and merino cotton blends and 100% pure cotton.
  • In fact not only do we design locally, we also source all our material locally and we cut and sew every garment out locally;   We ensure EVERY single item is thoroughly checked when complete, and NEVER let anything that is below our exceptionally high quality standards go out. 
  • Because we use NZ made, natural fabrics they are low fire danger.  And we comply with NZ/Australia safety standards. 
  • And if all that doesn't convince you; you might be interested to know that all our products are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting) - but for more details about how to care for merino, check out our detailed washing instructions page.

  • 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
