Merino wool is warm, soft and non-irritating, the perfect fabric for baby. It insulates, absorbs body moisture, stays warm even when wet, and breathes, helping regulate little one’s body temperature. We use only the finest merino fibres, making the clothing gentle, durable, and not itchy or scratchy against baby's delicate skin.
best for baby
Research at Cambridge University discovered that lamb’s wool has a soothing, swaddling effect on babies, resulting in better sleep, reduced stress, greater contentment and improved weight gain. Studies showing similar results were reported in the British Medical Journal, Lancet, and the Australian Medical Journal. Lying directly on lamb's wool calms baby, producing a deeper, more restful sleep, and promoting a faster growth rate. For many years, hospitals in England, Australia, and New Zealand have used lamb’s wool pads to line incubators for premature and low birth weight babies.
A baby’s delicate skin needs the softest fabrics. The feel and touch of wool relates to how fine the fibre is, the finer the fibre the softer the fabric. At Nature Baby we search for the finest fibre that we can find, so the fabric has all the amazing qualities of wool as well as having the softest touch.
how is our merino wool produced?
We use ZQ accredited wool from New Zealand to ensure our merino sheep are happy and healthy, roaming free range outdoors all year round, amongst the vast fields and mountains. The sheep are well looked after, and the ZQ accreditation program requires that they are provided with adequate food, water, comfort, shelter, and prevention or treatment of injury and disease. Their snowy fleece is spun into beautiful yarns, processed free of nasty chemicals.
Healthy happy sheep = healthy happy babies.
100% pure and natural
why choose certified merino?
We use merino from both ZQ accredited and GOTS certified suppliers. These certifications independently ensure the highest standards of quality, environmental care, social responsibility and animal welfare.
You’ll see the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification across much of our Nature Baby collection. It guarantees the organic status of a product, from field to finished garment and that no hazardous chemicals are used in the making of your baby’s clothing, whilst outlining strict social and environmental criteria.
ZQ certifications allow us to have natural, real connections throughout the supply chain, from growers to garment. We source our ZQ certifiedAustralasian merino from accredited farmers who meet the highest farming standards, and are assessed regularly by trained and qualified third party auditors.
