Product Description


A merino baby gown is the perfect layering item for newborns to wear at night inside a swaddle or small sleeping bag. This 100% jersey merino gown has a foldover mitten to prevent scratching and keep tiny hands and fingers nice and warm. It has an envelope neck opening with a wide elastic bottom, making it super-easy for late night nappy changes - simply lift the gown - no awkward domes or zips.   Merino baby gown's can be easily layered with other merino sleepwear such as merino bodysuits or singletsuits so that baby is dressed appropriately for the temperature of their nursery.  We are so delighted to have these high-quality merino elastic bottom baby gowns as part of The Sleep Store range.
The extra fine single jersey Merino has a delicious quality tee shirt type feel to it that is just so soft and smooth - the smoothest of our Merino! It is Certified Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX and is a Woolmark Extra Fine garment.  These jersey merino baby gowns have a comfortable stretch and as with all our Merino, it's sure to retain its beautiful shape.  At The Sleep Store, we love to find and create amazing products that help children sleep better. We strongly believe that layers of merino are an essential tool in helping children sleep better, especially during those cooler months. 
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 your little one warm in winter but also cool in the warmer months without waking up clammy. It can naturally lock away odours, releasing them when washed or aired - this can mean less washing... yay! 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.


  • Smooth and cosy
  • Elastic Bottom for easy nighttime changes
  • Envelope neck opening
  • Fold over mitten
  • 100% Jersey Merino Wool
  • Ideal for layering under a sleeping bag or swaddle

About our sizing
Our own brand garments follow the Australasian standard AS1182-1997 for sizing and are made with room to grow. Our Size 2 clothing for example is made to fit the standard’s average sized 2.5 year old comfortably. 

Tips on how to measure your child
Chest - Place tape measure under the arms and measure around the chest at the fullest part until your fingers meet.
Arm - With arms down by the side and relaxed, measure from the wrist to the top of the arm before the shoulder curve. If you are unsure where the true shoulder curve starts, then gently place your flat hand (or another flat item like a ruler) on the shoulder and measure up to this point.

Please note - Measurements are taken when garments are laid flat. Areas such as chest, waist and hips are calculated at twice the width to get the full measurement.

How to Use

Materials & Care


Merino sleeping bags, bedding, swaddles and clothing are easy to care for when following the correct guidelines. Please see our care instructions included with your garment.

Woolmark Extra Fine - 19.5 Microns
Certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX
Gentle machine or hand wash in cold or 30°C water with liquid wool wash
Dry immediately - lay flat or hang dry

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.

What are the major differences between The Sleep Store Merino garments?

Jersey Merino
The jersey merino is super smooth and soft, feels like high quality t-shirt fabric and has a comfortable stretch to it - not as much as the deluxe merino rib. Great for all year round and is the lightest of the three types at 200gsm. Good for summer babies.
Deluxe Merino Rib
This is a rib knit merino meaning it's structure is made up of rows of stitching. This gives this merino a really beautiful stretch with cross grain elasticity. It is so soft and great for all year round at 220gsm.
Deluxe Merino Fleece
The most fluffy fleecy softness on the inside, with a sweatshirt look on the outside, and most definitely the warmest of them all at 360gsm.
