When we think of merino kids we have thoughts of kids having fun outdoors. We have visions in our minds of kids in mud and stomping through puddles with boots, hats and New Zealand merino clothing keeping the cold away. There’s no hurry for our kids to come inside with this great, 100% natural fibre keeping them warm.
By wearing warm merino base layers of singlets or vests, camisoles and long sleeve shirts, to the top layers of hats and sweaters, your children will be able to play outdoors for hours with warmth and comfort. By wearing merino socks under their boots will mean that they can run through those puddles and their feet will stay warm.
1. Merino wool is warm and comfortable. You can be assured your kids will be kept warm and comfortable wearing merino. Merino is an insulator and will hold the body's heat. It allows your skin to breath naturally and is the perfect fiber to wear for all seasons of the year.
2. Merino naturally absorbs moisture. It has a unique ability to absorb up to three times its own weight in moisture, drawing the moisture away from the skin without feeling damp. And we all know how many times a child will walk right through a puddle instead of avoiding one!
3. Merino has safety aspects for kids, being naturally flame resistant. It won't burn so is extremely safe to wear.
4. Merino is non-prickly and soft. Wool once upon a time had a reputation of being scratchy to wear but today merino is chosen for the majority of wool clothing. Merino fibres are very fine and soft.
5. Merino is naturally stain resistant. Wool actually repels dirt. Now, if you think about this what a bonus for a kid to be wearing a stain resistant item of clothing. Yes its true - the natural properties of wool makes it resistant to stain so an item of clothing doesn't need to be washed as much. Unlike synthetic clothing which absorbs dirt and stains.
6. Merino is lightweight and versatile. The clothing items made from merino are not bulky items to wear. Kids just don't like playing in bulky layers!
7. Merino is tough and will last and last. Wouldn't it be great if you could pass your merino clothing down through all their kids? So therefore it has to save you money in the long run.
