From Mokopuna:


We believe that adventurous little people should be warm, comfortable and look great.  That's why we were one of the first baby wear companies in New Zealand to make clothing using 100% merino wool, the perfect fabric for little ones.  Merino wool is notonly biodegradable, totally renewable and sustainable but it's also silky soft next to skin and lightweight for comfort and freedom of movement. 

We've been at it for a while, over 10 years, so we know what works.  Our unrivalled styling is characterised by a unique colour palette and classic, clean designs with contemporary and playful details.

Merino wool is nature's wonder fibre that has so many benefits for little ones that it seems crazy it took so long before we discovered it.

Mokopuna & The Sleep Store

Mokopuna Merino has been part of The Sleep Store range for many years! It's one of our original Merino clothing ranges that has grown to now also include styles by Icebreaker, Babu, Nature Baby and our very own Woolbabe and own brand styles. See our full clothing range here.

Mokopuna garments are born in New Zealand's pristine southern alps to make a Merino that beautfully soft and fine, perfect for a clothing range for newborns, toddlers and young children.

Merino makes the perfect nightwear for babies, toddlers and young children. It never feels too hot, and insulates to make a snuggly warm layer when the nights are cooler.

Children love Merino sleepwear so much they don't want to take it off in the morning! Merino resists odour very well, so your children can often wear the same garment for days!

Merino is also one of the safest options for sleepwear. All Mokopuna garments are rated low fire danger, so are much safer for sleep (and daywear) than cotton.

Merino also makes an ideal newborn baby gift. Newborn babies cannot regulate their own temperature, so the amazing temperature regulating properties of merino really help your newborn stay just the right temperature.

Mokopuna Merino Frequently Asked Questions


Why doesn't it itch or scratch like traditional wool?

mokopuna merino™ is made from keratin, the same as our skin, which is one of the reasons it is so great against a baby's young body.

One of the key differences between mokopuna merino™ and normal wool is the diameter of the fibre. Because it's a finer fibre, it's silky soft against the skin, so it doesn't itch or scratch.

Incredibly, a mokopuna merino™ fibre is a third of the size of a human hair. 

Why won't Mokopuna Merino smell?

Odour is produced as a by-product of the growth of bacteria on the fabric surface and from some of the minor components of sweat. This latter factor varies between individuals.

mokopuna merino™ is naturally tuned to preventing this process. Its scaly surface, coupled with the lanolin in the fibre, prevents bacteria from settling and growing. 

How do I wash my Mokopuna Merino?

Because mokopuna merino™ is so resilient it can be machine washed. Just pop it in the machine on a gentle wool cycle with a wool approved detergent.  

What about fabric softener and bleach?

mokopuna merino™ is a natural product and shouldn't be subjected to chemical cleaners. Bleach, fabric softener and nappy bleach type products will rot the fabric. Besides, it doesn't need them! As the fabric is anti microbial (anti bacterial) it's naturally self cleansing. And being such a fine fibre, it's incredibly soft. Use white vinegar on stains. 

How quickly will my Mokopuna dry?

Well – not as quickly as synthetics, it's true. But it'll dry a lot quicker than traditional wool. mokopuna merino™ is particularly adept at desorption through evaporation.

We find Mokopuna Merino dries very quickly over a airing rack or heated towel rail.

Why not hand wash it while your child is in the bath and hang on the towel rail..it will be dry and ready to wear in the morning.

Alterantively, because it is so resilient and durable it can also be tumble dried on low.  

Will moths eat mokopuna?

Sadly, yes!

Moths are a fact of life, but you can protect your mokopuna garments by simply storing them in drawers.  

Can I put Mokopuna Merino in the dryer?

Yes! Tumble dry it on low. 

Why is mokopuna merino™ considered 'safe'?

All fabrics will burn given the right conditions; however they differ with respect to key characteristics: ease of ignition, and speed of burning.

Synthetics are made of petrochemical based plastic so light easily and melt when\ burning, tending to adhere to the skin.

Cotton is cellulose based, like wood and paper, and tends to ignite and burn in the same way.

mokopuna merino™, on the other hand, is naturally fire retardant. When exposed to a naked flame or severe heat it will, of its own accord, snuff out the burn. The mokopuna merino™ fabric has undergone rigorous fire safety testing and we greatly exceed the fire safety requirements for BS 5722. Mokopuna garments are labelled Low Fire Danger and Low Flammability to BS 5722. We also exceed Standard: AS/ NZS 1249:2003 Children's nightwear and limited daywear having reduced fire hazard.  

More facts about Mokopuna Merino:

One of the most amazing features of the mokopuna merino™ fibre is that when it takes on moisture, it uses it to generate warmth. Conversely, synthetics lose heat when wet.

On top of all that, mokopuna merino™ is UV resistant, and will never overheat (see Temperature Regulation). mokopuna merino™ has been tested for UPF (ultraviolet protection factor). All mokopuna fabrics have a UPF rating between 20 (good) for our stripe and 40 (excellent) for our lily (lightest plain coloured) fabric. A UPF rating of 20 means that the amount of solar ultraviolet radiation exposure to the skin beneath the garment is reduced by a factor of 20.

 

 

Safety of Mokopuna Merino Garments

Media Release from Mokopuna

As manufacturers of baby clothing, mokopuna merino™ safety is second to none and of the utmost importance to us.

There have been reports regarding toxins in children’s clothing including high levels of formaldehyde, carcinogenic dyes and unacceptable pH levels in some fabrics made in China.

mokopuna merino™ uses only 100% pure New Zealand merino fabric, made into garments, in China. NO formaldehyde is used during production.

Levels outside 4 to 7.5 on the pH scale “can damage skin.” The pH levels of mokopuna merino™ are well within acceptable pH levels:
• Light colours are pH neutral (7)
• Medium colours 5.5 - 6.5
• Dark colours 4.5 – 5

All dyestuffs used in the manufacture of mokopuna merino™ are health safe and procedures for the handling of dyestuffs are all covered under ISO 9002. Dyestuffs used have very high colour fastness to washing and light - this means they don't bleed.

The mokopuna merino™ fabric has also undergone fire safety testing. We greatly exceed the fire safety requirements for BS 5722 – in fact in one test, our fabric was three times safer than it was required to be. Our garments are labelled “Low Fire Danger and Low Flammability to BS 5722”.



 

Mokopuna Merino Customer Feedback

"I have used mokopuna merino clothing for all three of my children. I continue to me amazed at the quality especially as the items have been thrashed as they have been past down from each child and are still going strong. Mokopuna has out lasted any other merino clothing the children have worn. I recommend mokopuna merino to all my friends. I think it is the best brand around."
-- Sarah Tatham, Mother of Poppy, Freddie and Digby

 

"I love the Mokopuna sleepsack that I purchased - my son actually stays in it. He wouldn't stay in his go-go bag, he would put his arm inside and back out through the neck and undo the domes, kick it off and then wake up cold in the night. He cant do this now and is sleeping through the night - thank you sooo much!!"
-- Charlotte, Cocoono review at The Sleep Store

 

"I am having a passionate love affair with merino for my kids. Best thing ever. Never too hot, never cold. Actually, got compliments about your lovely merino on my gorgeous boys today. My 3 year old had on a navy long sleeve t under his check shirt and my 8 month old was looking super cute in a ruby long sleeve short suit, ruby stripe t over the top and ruby cosy hat. In fact some pieces are doing round 2 and still wash up like new every time. Fab work guys!"
-- Deana, Wellington NZ

 

We receive lots of feedback from satisfied customers but the following from a mother in Southland, NZ particularly captured our attention and we wanted to share it with you.....
"...the wrapsuits are a wonderful product. The fabric wears extremely well and I would expect mokopuna outfits to easily last more than one baby.....I have dispensed with buying other clothing brands and now own large amounts of mokopuna. The garments have passed the baby test which surprisingly many other companies do not."..

 

"I just love the functionality of the mokopuna range.... mokopuna has the only garments I have tried that are really functional and all mums love baby items that perf om as they should. The main draw card I have found is the fabric's wear ability. It handles milk and food dribble and leaky nappies without staining, AND after all this still looks as good as new. It also washes and dries like a dream. The sizing and fit is generous and ensures the garment lasts. In a nutshell they are baby clothes that will last more than one child which is absolutely ideal."
