What is merino wool?
Merino wool is a type of animal fiber that comes from sheep specially bred to produce fibers that are soft and fine. Each sheep produces five to seven ounces (140–200 grams) of merino wool each year, which is processed into clothing such as sleep sacks, onesies, t-shirts, socks, hats, scarves and jumpers.
Merino wool's softness makes it comfortable to wear next to the skin on cold days. This can be especially helpful for people who suffer with dry skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis because their irritated skin often feels better when kept warm and moist. The extra warmth also helps relieve pain in stiff joints by helping them move more easily.
Merino wool is also one of the most amazing natural fibers you can use in apparel for adults, children and babies alike. It is a natural fiber, so it's very soft and warm. It also requires little to no care at all. It doesn't pill, shrink or create static electricity problems like synthetics do.
Why should you choose products like merino wool sleep sacks?
Parents and children alike absolutely love merino wool sleep sacks. The problem is that many merino wool sleep sacks can be quite expensive to purchase, compared to fabrics like muslin, traditional cotton and even organic cotton or polyester. This is largely a result of merino wool being such an expensive raw material to source and work with in apparel. Despite the premium price point, merino wool is the most healthy, safest, and most comfortable fiber for your baby. Additionally, merino wool has incredible natural antibacterial properties, making it a great choice for those with allergies.
Studies show that babies sleeping on fabrics made of finer fibers, such as merino wool, sleep more soundly and cry less. So, put that together with a sleep sack, and you have yourself the ideal sleep product for your child's best night's sleep ever!
Thanks to its incredibly super soft, fine and thermal properties, it basically has superpowers. It helps keep you warm in cooler weather, and cool in warmer weather. It's naturally antimicrobial, sweat-wicking and thermal to keep your child comfortable at all times.
What are the benefits of merino wool sleep sacks?
Merino wool is a naturally antibacterial fabric, which means that it can be worn next to your baby's skin without causing any irritation. The softness of merino wool also makes it very comfortable for both you and your baby. It's so soft and light, yet warm enough to keep him or her cozy in bed all night long! Merino wool sleep sacks help babies fall asleep faster than those who wear cotton or polyester, because they create a more natural environment for sleep by keeping the baby's body temperature regulated at a level just right for sleeping.
The antibacterial properties of merino wool also make them ideal for people with sensitive skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, as well as people with allergies such as dust-mite allergies. When you buy these products online from Canada, you can rest assured that there will be no harsh chemicals used in the manufacturing process to test on animals. Ry & Pen's fabrics are always certified standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, guaranteeing not only their quality, but also the fact they are completely harmless for human enjoyment.
Merino wool is naturally odour-resistant, thanks to its anti-microbial properties, helping to prevent unwanted scents and smells from building up on the sleep sack over time. The natural properties of merino wool help it maintain its own moisture but also keep you dry when you are sleeping in a wet environment.
