Our merino wool-loving hearts are very proud to see Roots & Wings Merino as part of MeMe & Co's handpicked boutiques, which means we get to share the merino love with a bigger, global audience who cares (like you!)
We love knowing that while our children are wearing merino, they can play outside and explore nature in high-quality garments that keep them comfy and dry, while also regulating their temperatures to keep them cool in summer and warm in winter.
Merino is truly nature’s miracle wool, and the world is taking notice. Designers and fashion-lovers are experiencing a growing passion for merino.
Children are more susceptible to cold for a simple reason: Their smaller bodies lose heat rapidly. Another less scientific reason is that they usually don't agree with all the layers that come with protecting them from the cold, rain or heat. And while we all want our children to roam free and enjoy all the beautiful things that the great outdoors has to offer, the question begs: How do we dress them for any weather?
July is a very special month, wherever you are in the world. The schools are out and for many families, that means fun holidays in the great outdoors; from swimming and music festivals in the northern hemisphere, to skiing and stories by the campfire in the southern hemisphere.
While these are definitely special times spent enjoying nature and bonding with family, the idea of packing for an outdoors adventure with small children causes the shivers in some parents, mostly because we know how fragile babies are to the elements.
The truth is, however, that with proper planning and preparation, you shouldn't worry about taking your little ones on holiday, and letting them run free and be kids.
