Why merino wool?

We recommend Merino wool for our baby blankets and outfits because it is a natural fiber that offers numerous benefits for babies. Merino wool is soft, lightweight, and warm, making it perfect for keeping babies cozy and comfortable. It also has natural properties that help regulate body temperature, manage moisture, repel odors and bacteria, provides UV protection, and more. Additionally, Merino wool is a renewable resource and biodegradable, making it a more sustainable choice for the environment.

Thermo-regulation: One of the most significant benefits of Merino wool is its ability to regulate body temperature. This is particularly important for babies, who have a harder time regulating their body temperature than adults. Merino wool has excellent insulating properties, which means it can keep babies warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather.

Softness: Merino wool is renowned for its softness. This is because it has a finer diameter compared to other types of wool, making it less scratchy and irritating to the skin. The fibers are also more flexible and elastic, which adds to the overall comfort of the fabric. For babies, who have delicate skin that is easily irritated, merino wool is an excellent choice for clothing and blankets.

Anti-odor: Another great feature of Merino wool is its natural anti-odor properties. Unlike synthetic fabrics, which can trap odors and bacteria, Merino wool naturally repels these elements. This makes it a great choice for baby outfits and blankets, which can get soiled quickly and need to be washed frequently.

Moisture management: Merino wool is also excellent at managing moisture. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet, which means it can wick away sweat and moisture from a baby's skin. This can help prevent rashes and other skin irritations that can occur when a baby's skin is damp for prolonged periods.

UV protection: Merino wool also has natural UV protection properties, making it an excellent choice for baby outfits and blankets that will be used outdoors. This natural protection comes from the dense fibers of the wool, which can absorb and scatter UV radiation.

Biodegradation: Merino wool is a natural fiber that is biodegradable, meaning it will break down over time when exposed to the environment. This makes it a more eco-friendly choice than synthetic fabrics, which can take hundreds of years to break down and can release harmful chemicals into the environment.

Flame retardant: Merino wool is also naturally flame retardant, which means it does not ignite easily and will self-extinguish if it does catch on fire. This makes it a safer choice for baby outfits and blankets.

Renewable: Finally, Merino wool is a renewable resource, as sheep can regrow their wool after it is shorn. This makes it a more sustainable choice than fabrics made from non-renewable resources.

Overall, Merino wool is an excellent choice for baby outfits and blankets due to its numerous benefits and features. It is soft, lightweight, and warm, and has natural properties that make it great at regulating body temperature, managing moisture, repelling odors and bacteria, providing UV protection, and more. Plus, it is a sustainable and eco-friendly choice that can help protect the environment for future generations.
