10 Benefits of merino wool clothing for kids


Check out some of the key benefits your kids will receive from their merino wool clothes.
 

1. Merino wool is warm & comfortable


You can be assured your baby or child will be kept warm and comfortable wearing merino wool clothing.

Merino is an insulator and holds the body's heat well.

It allows their skin to breathe naturally and discourages sweating, particularly for babies who haven’t learned to regulate heat very well and are prone to over-heating in synthetic fibres.

Merino is perfect to wear in all seasons, not just winter.
 

2. Merino wool naturally absorbs moisture


Merino wool has a unique ability to absorb up to three times its own weight in moisture, drawing the moisture away from the skin without feeling damp.
 

3. Merino wool is naturally flame resistant


Merino has a great safety aspect for children.

Being naturally flame resistant, it won't burn and is extremely safe to wear.
 

4. Merino wool is tough, easy-care & fully machine washable


Washing merino wool is easy and its warmth actually increases with washing!

Treat your garments with care. Wash on a delicate cycle using an approved wool wash detergent, preferably one that contains no enzymes.

Before you wash a garment always check the care label first.
 

5. Merino wool is non-prickly


Wool used to have reputation of being scratchy to wear, but today merino wool is often chosen as its fibres are very fine and soft.
 

6. Merino wool is naturally stain resistant


Wool actually repels dirt. Perfect for messy children!

The natural properties of wool makes it resistant to stains so an item of clothing doesn't need to be washed as much.

The natural fibre of merino wool is a mother's best friend, unlike synthetic clothing which absorbs dirt and stains.
 

7. Merino wool is lightweight & versatile


Merino wool clothing is not bulky and is extremely lightweight and easy to wear.

Merino wool is very versatile and a number of clothing items can be made from the fibre including hats, scarves, socks, vests, singlets, pants, trousers, underwear and tops.
 

8. Merino wool doesn't wrinkle


There will never be a need for an iron!

The natural properties of merino wool ensure that it bounces back to its original state.
 

9. Merino wool is resistant to static


This is another natural property of merino wool.

Merino clothing will never contain static electricity.
 

10. Merino is tough and will last & last


Merino wool clothing is naturally long lasting and perfect to keep and hand down to all your children - saving your money in the long run too!
