Why use merino wool


For centuries parents have been sleeping their babies in the natural fibres of wool to keep them warm and comfortable, and there is now scientific evidence that sleeping on or under wool actually improves the quality of sleep.

If your baby is unsettled, one reason for their unrest could be down to the environment they’re sleeping in and the type of bedding you are using in their cot.

Simply sleeping your baby in the natural properties that merino wool provides could make all the difference to a good quality sleep.


7 Reasons why babies sleep better in merino

 

1. Merino wool has natural temperature properties


Babies don't regulate their body heat very well when they are young and are likely to lose heat.

Merino wool has natural temperature properties and assists the body naturally to regulate body heat.

A baby can be prone to overheating when sleeping in synthetic fabrics, but wool will provide an even warmth.
 

2. Merino wool has natural moisture properties


Wool can stop the bed becoming clammy as it assists with regulating body temperature.

It is a naturally "breathable" fibre which will help with a more comfortable and safe sleep.
 

3. Merino wool is soft and comfortable against young baby skin


Merino wool is soft and comfortable due to the fineness of the fibres that it provides.

Merino wool is not scratchy.
 

4. Merino wool is a mother's best friend


Wool is naturally odour and dirt resistant and requires a lot less washing.

Merino wool can be washed in the washing machine (always check the care label first) and dries very quickly.

5. Merino wool has safety aspects


Wool is naturally fire resistant and will not burn.

It is a great fibre for nightwear for children as it is extremely safe.
 

6. Merino wool is healthy for your baby


Research shows that weight gain in underweight newborns was 61% higher when sleeping on a wool underlay compared to a cotton sheet.

Jaundiced babies are also found to be more settled when sleeping on wool.
 

7. Merino wool is environmentally friendly


Merino wool is a natural product which provides a natural and safe sleeping environment. Wool is naturally renewable and biodegradable.
 
A sleeping baby is a happy and healthy baby which in turn makes all our lives easier!

So if this is not happening in your house, why not make some simple changes to merino wool bedding today.
