Nestling Merino Swaddle Wraps
The First Breath 100% Organic Merino Wrap helps baby feel secure and cozy ensuring a more peaceful nights sleep and is suitable for all seasons.
Merino is renowned for its wonderful ability to maintain a suitable micro-climate between baby and garment. The perfect material to swaddle baby is also due to the fabric’s natural elasticity allowing baby to move as in mother’s womb, eliminating the newborns startle reflex.
Merino wool allows ventilation to the skin and has the ability to absorb body moisture. Merino fibre will absorb up to 35% of its own weight in water before it evens begins to feel wet, this helps regulates babies temperature unlike synthetic fabrics which can cause overheating.
Merino wool is non-irriating and non allergenic, so soft and great for sensitive skin.
Organic Merino is produced in our own back yard, here in Aotearoa. Being Organic, you can be assured that the wool is produced with Organic farming methods which eliminate any toxic chemicals, pesticides, formaldehyde and other additives that are used in the conventional farming processes.
Merino wool is naturally flame resistant and has a low heat combustion and low rate of heat release.
When purchasing Organic, you are not only looking after your child now but are also investing into their future too.
