Merino wicks moisture away from the skin and into the atmosphere meaning you'll be kept drier for longer. Merino can absorb up to 35% of its own weight before feeling wet!

Merino wool have a UV factor of between 30 and 50 UVP because the fibres absorb UV radiation throughout the entire UV spectrum, adding a layer of protection against harmful rays.


Although merino wool clothing tends to be more expensive than synthetic fibres it will last a lot longer meaning you won't have to repurchase every few months. Merino wool fibres can bend over 20,000 times without breaking so won't lose shape.


Merino wool is super soft against the skin and unlike traditional wool it doesn't irritate or itch the skin. The merino fibres are so fine that when they come into contact with the skin they bend. Merino is also hypoallergenic meaning it's great for babies with eczema and allergies. Read more here


All fabrics will burn but some are more combustible than others. Untreated natural fibres such as cotton, linen and silk have a very high burning rate. Synthetics tend to be slow to ignite, but once ignited, severe melting and dripping can occur. Merino wool contains natural fire retardants, ­further helping safeguard your child’s health. It is comparatively flame-retardant but if ignited, it usually has a low burning rate and may self-extinguish.
