"The best investment I ever made! My little girl was put into the Layette right after she was born and I never once had to worry about her temperature being an issue. She was so content" - Stacey, mum of 3


Specially created by Roots & Wings in association with New Zealand midwife and author Kathy Fray, the Day-1 Heirloom Layette is tailor-made to look after your newborn from the word go. It's that special outfit your child will wear on the day he or she is born, and for those most important weeks after.

Made from 100% organic New Zealand merino wool, undyed and natural.

This newborn baby layette set will support your baby in feeding and sleeping better than any other outfit available. It also comes with a beanie and clothing bag – so once outgrown it can be safely stored - ready for the next child in your family!

The Day-1 Heirloom Layette consists of:

  • 1 bodysuit as the base layer
  • 1 jumpsuit (or romper) to put on top
  • 1 beanie to preserve body heat
  • 1 organic muslin bag for storage


Add one merino swaddle wrap blanket for the ultimate in baby comfort.

GIVING BACK:  For each Day-1 Heirloom Layette you buy, we’ll donate clothing to a newborn in Kenya. Add the blanket, and we’ll add a blanket too!
