Our NEW Lilac merino swaddle is part of our exclusive custom collaboration with local New Zealand artist Pippa Wigley.
Merino Swaddle: To swaddle a baby is to wrap them in a piece of fabric to help them feel safe and secure. It is an ancient method of caring for a newborn child, where cotton muslin was the fabric of choice. Technological developments over the past decade in merino wool has allowed for a fabric with superior softness, strength and washability. Our fabric is sourced from local sheep, with a beautiful softness and moderate stretch. This is important for swaddled babies as it allows for small movement, something that studies have shown are important for a baby's hips. The swaddle is also ideal for use as a light blanket in a stroller or car seat and also as a comforter for a baby to take to bed. The swaddles can be easier cleaned in a general washing machine and the large size allows for easy wrapping and tucking, making this swaddle even more functional.
Fabric: 90% NZ Merino, 10% Synthetic Knit, 18-19 microns (super-fine)
Why choose Merino?
Merino fabric is an incredibly versatile and functional fabric. The high country sheep that our wool comes from are able to withstand extreme weather changes. Hot or cold, this fabric is able to retain heat in cooler weather or wick moisture away to allow breathing in warmer climates. This is perfect for babies who cannot regulate their own body temperatures. Not only breathable but super soft, the fineness of this fabric is incredibly obvious to the touch, feeling more like silk than wool. It will not rub or cause abrasion to a baby’s gentle skin.
