Merino Wool. Not Just For Winter.

Merino Wool. Not Just For Winter.

We wear wool all year round. The properties of merino wool and silk are perfect for maintaining a stable core temperature. This puts less stress on a child's body so they can concentrate on more important work like play.

Spring/Summer means waterplay is probable. Merino wool doesn't feel cold and clammy when wet so even if your child splashes about they won't feel cold and miserable.

Looking for the perfect PJs? This fibre blend makes the most peaceful and pesticide-free sleepwear, GOTS certified organic. 

We live in Victoria and our beaches at the best of times can feel cold when the wind whips about wet clothing. We often put a merino wool singlet under our children's rashies which stops their lips turning blue. 

Who hates laundry? Summer usually means more laundry, but if you keep your child in merino wool you'll also keep your laundry pile low. Merino wool is self-cleaning and doesn't hold odours.

Finally we prefer covering up to sunscreen. Our kids wear wool/silk longsleeves as they are often outdoors most of the day so we can reduce sunscreen to exposed areas only. The silk adds a cooling, soothing property which feels lovely and light on the skin.

Using Disana nappies for bed wetters
Using Disana nappies for bed wetters

February 21, 2013

I've had a few customers asking about using the Disana wool nappy covers for their older children who are bed wetters. 

After your child has potty trained in the day, they may still be wet at night for some time after. For my son, who is now four, we have had a six month period of dryness when he was about two and a half and then we moved to Australia when he was nearly three and then everything went out of the window.  It's common to hear how a major disruption in a child's life can send potty training back to its humble beginnings, which is exactly what has happened to us...
