With cold weather descending, we turn to merino wool to keep our kids warm, cozy, and active.
But why not cotton or synthetic fibers? Why do we choose 100% merino wool as the soulful base of everything we make, including our thermal long johns?
Quite simply, Mother Nature engineered merino wool to keep the wearer warm, cozy, and active when temperatures drop this fall and winter.
Unlike cotton, merino naturally wicks away moisture and retains heat even when wet. If your little one is wearing cotton long johns and snow slips under the jacket, the cotton layer will rob the wearer of warmth.
Not so with merino. Nature’s original high-performance fiber holds in warmth even when wet and dries quickly. Whether it’s a little sweat or an errant snow ball, merino works hard to keep your little one active and cozy in all types of conditions.
Cotton just can’t match merino’s natural temperature-regulating properties.
And neither can petroleum-based synthetic fibers like polyester. Although quick-drying, synthetic fibers can’t match merino’s natural insulating effect which helps the wearer maintain a consistent and comfortable body temperature.
Plus, if you’re like us, you just feel better wearing a natural fiber from the world’s softest sheep. We source our merino directly from New Zealand to ensure next-to-skin plush softness and comfort.
Our long johns will be your kid’s favorite high-performance base layer and softest pair of pajamas, all in one super soft set. And for that, we have Mother Nature to thank.
