The fine-spun soft merino fabric is comfortably lightweight yet provides superior warmth-to-weight insulation and will keep your newborn baby much warmer than cotton. Merino also breathes exceptionally well and, unlike polyester, it readily absorbs and releases moisture to keep your baby warm without overheating.
The air temperature in a nursery can fluctuate and a newborn baby often wakes either too hot or too cold because it takes time for their body to develop the full capability to regulate its temperature. Merino fabric has the remarkable natural ability to absorb and release moisture, to cool or warm your baby’s body, regulating their body temperature to compensate for changes in room temperature. The Merino Kids Blanket is ideal in any season because of this temperature-regulating capability.
Made entirely of natural fibre, the MERINO KIDS BLANKET is safe to use for babies with allergies, eczema and sensitive skin.
Merino is naturally fire resistant and the Merino Kids Blanket is rated low fire risk. It has not been treated with the fireproofing chemicals commonly applied to polyester which can irritate baby skin.
The benefits of Merino wool include:
TEMPERATURE REGULATION. Nursery room temperatures can fluctuate during the night causing a baby to wake up. Merino's unparalleled ‘breathability’ means no clamminess next to the skin, creating a perfect micro-climate around the body and helping regulate a baby's body temperature. Merino will keep your baby warm in the cold and cool in the heat and help prevent overheating.
COMFORT. Our merino is superfine, luxuriously soft, light and non-itchy. It is also hypoallergenic, helping babies with sensitive skin & eczema problems.
100% NATURAL. Wool is the least flammable of fibres and the safest to have next to your body. It is naturally self-extinguishing and, unlike synthetics, it won’t melt and stick to skin. The material also retains less odour and nasty smells, thus reducing the need for frequent washing. But it is machine-washable and very easy to care for.
Infants must NEVER wear hats and/or beanies when sleeping indoors.
A child’s safety is the responsibility of the parents or career.
