"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

The Day-1 Heirloom Layette is specially created by New Zealand midwife and author Kathy Fray with Roots & Wings merino. Tailormade to look after your newborn on the most special day of his or her life. It's that special outfit your child will wear on the day he or she is born and those most important weeks after.

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

This layette will support your baby in feeding and sleeping better than any other outfit out there.

Then safely stored in the clothing bag that comes with your purchase, and ready for the next child in the family.

Save it and pass it down.

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

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

GIVING BACK: For each Day-1 Heirloom Layette you buy, we give clothing to a newborn in Kenya. Add the blanket, we add a blanket too a Newborn in Kenya too.
