Today we’re talking about Merino Baby – a range of beautiful children’s products made from 100% Australian merino wool. We’ve been testing out a few items from the current collection, including singlets, pants, hoodies, and bodysuits. I’m new to merino wool and this is the first merino clothing that I’ve tried. We also have a little giveaway at the end of the review.
The folks at Merino Baby design their collection for superior comfort using premium ultra-fine wool, which makes it soft against babies skin. The features of merino wool include natural comfort, temperature regulation, breathability, and odour resistance and we found that the garments retain their shape well and wash up as good as new. I was very relieved to discover that the merino is machine washable, as hand washing when you have a new addition is way too much work!
We’ve found the Merino Baby garments cool enough to wear on a spring day, with just enough warmth for cooler evenings. I like how the garments provide a snug fit, yet have plenty of stretch so as not to restrict movement. I also love the colour palette, especially the pink and white stripes!
My favourite little outfit from the range is the pink stripe hoodie, plain pink vest, and pink and white striped pants. The hoodie has the sweetest little pocket on the front, and I kind of wish I could get one in my size! For the boys, I’m loving the blue and grey striped bodysuit with matching grey pants. It’s a simple, yet adorable look, plus all of the Merino Baby garments mix and match for a versatile wardrobe.
The verdict… classic, charming, and premium quality.
