Active wear for children - merino clothes made in NZ

Our active living merino collection for tweens recently won a Silver award in the “Active Wear” category at the London 2018 Junior Design Awards. 

“The perfect balance of functionality, simplicity and aesthetics”

Our new tweens collection, "It's For Living In", recently won a 2018 Junior Design Award in the “Active Wear” category. The collection features a range of high-quality merino gear to fit any activity from crazy adventures to couch day chill-outs.

“Roots & Wings describe their Merino wool layers as the perfect balance of functionality, simplicity and aesthetics and we would have to agree. Having perfected their merino baby wear to exacting standards, the company have now used this expertise and commitment to quality to make their super soft merino available to older children. Our judges were very impressed and were full of praise for the collection.”

When it comes to dressing your older kids, it can be a battle to get them to layer up - even in the coldest temperatures! The complaints about untrendy designs or itchiness seem never-ending.

And if you're lucky enough to go skiing and you do invest in merino for your kids, all the above applies and the merino ends up back in the drawer on your return.

“Love the colour, simplicity and quality."

- Donna Wilson, renowned textiles designer and 2018 Junior Design Awards judge


Our 100% organic merino collection includes a long-sleeve top and leggings - the perfect base layers for that ski-trip, winter morning soccer match or even to sleep in. These layers will be never be shelved in cooler months. 

Every inch of the garments has been scrutinised, using the highest quality merino and stylishly designed with them in mind.

The collection features an extra-long, snug fit for 100% seamless comfort, no irritating neck labels, a stylish neckband and a raglan sleeve for timeless simplicity.
