Tell me more:
At The Sleep Store, we love to find amazing products that help
children sleep better. Layers of merino are an essential tool in helping
children sleep better in winter, so we are delighted to add these
lovely quality merino bodysuits to our Deluxe Sleepwear range.
Merino used to make these super soft and snuggly bodysuits is a rib
knit. It means they have a great stretch to them allowing the fabric to
'hug' your baby nice and snug making it the perfect base layer!
Why do we love Merino so much? Known as the 'miracle fibre' when it comes to infant sleep, Merino wool is a naturally temperature-regulating and moisture wicking fibre. It will help to keep baby warm in winter but also cool in the warmer months without waking up clammy. It has the ability to naturally lock away odours, releasing them when washed or aired - this can mean less washing... yaye! Merino is also naturally fire retardant. Of course we recommend keeping your children well away from any heaters and fires ("a metre from the heater!") but Merino is a naturally low fire danger fabric.

Care for your merino
As with many wool garments, you may experience a bit of pilling on this garment. Please note this is often due to a soft fibre such as merino rubbing against other fabrics, such as flannelette sheets. We consider pilling a normal part of wear and tear on a soft merino garment. We could have treated the fabric much more to reduce pilling but then it would lose its lovely, snuggly softness.
Please take care with moths
Protect your Merino from small holes created by insects such as moths and silverfish. Ensure your garments are clean before storing. Lavender and Cedar wood are noxious to these pests so storing your garments with these scents or a moth trap will help protect your knitwear further.
Love your Merino and it will love you back!
