After a busy awards season, we are so excited to announce that our organic merino swaddle wrap blanket has been shortlisted for a 2019 Mother & Baby Award in the category “Best product for a newborn 0-4 months”.

Baby Maternity Magazine's awards programme is based in the USA. The programme is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by over 50 expectant mothers, new moms and baby caregivers. This means that the products are judged by the people who would buy them, and professionals that work with babies every day, ensuring the most valuable inputs on quality, design and aesthetics.

UNIQUE BENEFITS OF MERINO
improved sleep for babies
Medical studies have shown that merino has a number of health benefits, including improved sleep patterns in babies.
cool in summer, warm in winter
Merino fibre actively regulates temperature, forming a micro-climate around your child’s body, always retaining the ideal, safe temperature.
super silky and soft on young skin
Merino fibres, much finer than other types of wool, measure below the threshold when prickle or itch occurs, making our merino luxuriously soft against the skin. No itch guaranteed!
Merino is naturally resistant to shrinkage and wrinkles. Its waxy coating prevents deep staining, so merino will look good even after rough wear. It’s also easy to wash in the machine and even goes in the dryer.
Merino absorbs 35% of its own weight in moisture, with a waxy coating that initially repels water, leaving your child warmer and dry for longer.
reduces skin allergies
Merino outperforms other fabrics with a natural resistance to the build-up of bacteria and lower incidences of skin allergies.
Merino can stretch up to 30% of its own length. It follows your child’s movements unhindered, will always fit snugly and retains its natural shape.
These two are sleeping so much better in their Roots & Wings Merino. Their pieces are SO soft + cozy (and organic!)
Ministylemag - mum of these two cuties
The bodysuit from Roots & Wings Merino is unconditionally our favourite for Little Sister. She's been able to fit it for over 9 months now and the merino is both light and fine - wonderful when it's her base layer - and silky soft and most importantly: it keeps her at the perfect temperature.
Stine O. Mother to 3 little girls
I don't have to think too much about how I dress my little guy in the morning. I know when he's wearing Roots & Wings underneath he's happy. I've tried using other wool base layers, but he starts screaming. So I like to keep it easy and Roots & Wings does that. Plus we love how easy it is to wash (in the machine!!!), so we use it basically every day! You'd be crazy not getting this for your baby!
