Skincare in a blanket
Super soft and non-irritating, merino is made of the same protein as our own skin. It’s the perfect match for baby.
Merino keeps baby cozy without overheating. Unique properties regulate temperature to ensure baby sleeps comfortably in every season.
Natural fibers are a better fit for baby’s sensitive skin and permeable skin barrier.
Organic & Plant Dyed
Our GOTS merino is minimally processed and dyed with only pure botanicals in Northern Italy.
A naturally breathable fabric, merino transports sweat away from the skin as vapor. In babies, sweat-free skin is less eczema prone.
