What is merino fleece? 

Our merino fleece is a unique fabric that we first developed in 2015 and have been improving on each year. The fabric looks and feels like soft sweatshirting on the outside, and has a beautiful brushed and fluffy finish on the inside. Consisting of 83% merino wool, and 17% elastane, our fleece is a Woolmark certified wool rich blend. The elastane has been an improvement we’ve made to the fabric over recent years, to provide a comfortable stretch. Enjoy all of the incredible natural benefits that our lush merino wool has to offer, all while being machine washable and easy to care for. With superior softness, breathability, temperature regulation, moisture and odour control, merino is the perfect choice for little ones.


How do I wash merino fleece?

  • For the first few washes, turn the item inside out and shake free any loose fluff.
  • Wash separately on a cold wool wash or delicate cycle (30°C max) with liquid wool detergent- using wool detergents is very important to maintain the quality of your merino!
  • Air dry by hanging or laying flat.
  • Do not soak, bleach or hot iron.
