Try to forget everything you know about wool - when it comes to newborn babies MERINO WOOL is the only choice. It doesn't matter if it's the middle of Summer or the heart of winter, merino will work, like magic, to regulate your newborn's temperature.
Perfect for any new arrival. As babies can't regulate their temperature using 100% pure merino knotted hats will help them stay warm in winter, and cool in summer all day long. They are made to match our beautiful merino sleepsuits, nightgowns and wraps.
Our knotted hats will generally fit from newborn to approx 4/5 months old. Simply tie the knot to fit your baby's head and adjust the knot as they grow. The knotted hat are perfect for daytime strolling and all out and about activities - just make sure you don't sleep your baby overnight in a hat (as they may overheat).
And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our knotted hats are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting).
Designed and made in New Zealand using 100% pure natural fabrics.
SUMMER weight (150-165grms) - This is equivalent to wearing COTTON, but with all the cooling benefits and the lightness of merino. Wear this during the hottest months of the year with a single layer of merino and nappy underneath. OR, this option is also ideal if you like to layer, for example in Spring and Autumn you would add a merino singlet or bodysuit underneath the drawstring gown or sleepsuit underneath, and then even have the option of adding a blanket over top.
STANDARD weight (170-190grms) - This is our all-year-round 365 days of the year merino. This is perfect for wearing without the need for extra layers. So you would ideally wear a drawstring gown or sleepsuit against newborn skin, and then the wrap over the top and you're done.
WINTER weight (200-230grms) - The ultimate in softness and warmth. Wear this weight in Autumn, Winter and Spring, with clothing alternations underneath, but it might be a little warm for the heat of Summer. This is also ideal if you have a prem baby with low body weight or an extra cool house. Wear it with merino drawstring gowns or sleepsuits, and add singlets and bodysuits as required. Make sure whatever you wear against the skin is merino.
