Merino Wool's warmth will actually increase with washing.The natural fibre of merino wool is a mother's best friend. Unlike synthetic clothing which absorbs dirt and stains wool repels dirt and doesn't need to be washed very often.
Merino Wool is an insulator and will hold your body heat. It allows your skin to breath naturally so doesn't encourage sweating. Merino Wool is the perfect fibre for babies because at a young age the body hasn't learned to regulate heat very well and so a baby can be prone to over heating in synthetics.
It is a perfect fibre to wear for all seasons of the year.
Merino wool comes from a sheep which are shorn which is just like cutting your hair. It does not hurt the sheep. Sheep continuously grow wool and are typically shorn once a year. It's very important to shear a sheep to keep the sheep healthy and cool in the summer.
At Cosy Toes we promote New Zealand wool and are proud of the fact that your children are wearing a natural fibre that is also environmentally friendly.
