Cherishing Little Dreams: How to Care for Merino Wool

Merino wool baby sleeping bags provide unmatched comfort for your little one's bedtime. Surprisingly, caring for merino wool is a breeze. Follow these easy steps to keep your baby's sleeping bag in excellent condition.

How to Care for your Merino


  • Wash like colours together (e.g separate lights and darks)
  • Close all zippers to prevent snagging
  • Use warm or cool machine wash on a wool cycle
  • Use WOOL liquid wash
  • Do not use bleach or fabric softener
  • Do not soak your garment
  • Line dry garments

Machine wash

When machine washing, remember to close any zip fasteners, select the wool cycle, and ensure that the temperature is set to a maximum of 40°C. It is important to use a mild liquid detergent that is suitable for wool - detergents containing enzymes will damage the wool fibres.


Merino wool is naturally water-repelling, allowing it to dry quickly. Where possible, we suggest flat drying or gently hanging garments for optimal care. Whilst it’s always better to dry naturally if you can, our merino wool can be tumble dried if required (always follow the label on the item though).

Stain removal

Rub liquid wool wash directly onto the stained area. Leave for 15 minutes and then proceed to wash as per instructions.

Odour resistant

Merino wool has a natural ability to prevent the build-up of bacteria and repel odours, therefore it really only needs washing when it has become ‘soiled’.

    Happy Mama

    "I got it in 3-6 months. My daughter is 5.5 kgs. She’s nice and snug with lots of room for growing as it has great stretch. Quality is amazing! So soft and I love the 2 way zipper. Makes night changes hassle free as it’s minimal disruption to her beauty sleep."

  • So Good!

    "So happy with my All season wool sleeping bag.
    Baby sleeps so well, it’s beautiful and it takes away the worry of ‘are they too hot’ or ‘are they too cold’.
    The quality and fabrics are so lovely and the design ensure that my baby is comfortable and has freedom to move.
    Also love that it’s Australian made."
