Merino Kids was founded by Amie Nilsson in New Zealand in 2003.  It is now an international, award winning, textile company specialising in using 100% natural fibres, for the design of newborn, baby, infant and toddler sleepwear.

Merino Kids make garments using 100% natural superfine, bleach-free merino, 100% natural organic cotton and nickel-free zips and domes/poppers.

We especially love their Merino wool, because though it is warm and breathable - as always with wool - its fine knit give it the feel of soft cotton, thus giving children the best material to live and sleep in! 

You'll be glad to know that Merino Kids' superfine merino top is spun, woven and finished in India in a sweatshop-free environment.

When looking at Merino Kids' clothes, it's easy to see that they are created by a mother with care for children and practicality in mind.  Design features such as fold-over scratch mitts, fold-over feet, cross-over necklines and elastic backs are brilliant for easy dressing and changing.

Environmentally friendly packaging is also something Merino Kids care about, so they use 100% cotton organdy fabric and recycled tissue paper.

These things make Merino Kids a good fit for us, and we're happy to be stocking them.  We hope you enjoy their wraps, sleeping bags and clothing too.

We love Autumn!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

This morning was a beautiful crisp blue morning and the hedgerows were full of delicious blackberries. This afternoon we definitely have a taste of an Indian summer. These Blackberry Ice Lollies are perfect for sunny September days like today. 275g of blackberries 375g of Organic Natural Yoghurt 3 tbsp of honey/sugar (optional) 1. Whiz the blackberries in a blender 2. Mix the honey and yoghurt 3. Fold the blackberries and yoghurt together 4. Put into lolly moulds and freeze until solid ( roughly seven hours) Speaking of purple things... For when it gets a wee bit chillier these beautiful hooded wool coats will make all little girls feel like something out of a fairytale.

We’ve been searching for lovely clothes to catch those first falling leaves. My favourite is this soft wool skirt from FUB. My little girl loves to twirl and this skirt twirls!!! Its gorgeously soft and its perfect for playing in the autumn leaves - because its Merino wool you can just brush the dirt off.

Enjoy this magical time of year.
