Merino Wool and Babies

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.  


Our beautifully made gown sets are made from soft, warm merino and ideal for your brand new baby. It really is the perfect start before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and it's a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag. Plus they are designed to fit from newborn to approx 6mths, so you get great value for money. 

Our envelope neck is designed for easy fit and our generous length will allow for plenty of kick room or for those extra tall babies. With a drawstring at the bottom to allow for easy access at nappy changes, night times will be so much easier for mum and dad. And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our night-gowns are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting).  Click here for more help with caring for merino.

Which merino is right for you?

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.
