TRM's Christmas Gift Guide :: 100% Merino Wool PJ's from Simply Merino {Giveaway Ends 12/15} US/CAN

Warm cozy PJ's are a must for babies and children. Why not treat them to some amazing ones made from natural Merino wool!?

Simply Merino is a Canadian company that offers 100% Merino wool pyjamas (yes, they use a different spelling in Canada!) and thermal wear that are sourced and manufactured in New Zealand. For infants and babies they carry sleepers, gowns, booties, blankets, hats and two-piece PJ's. For toddlers and up to age 12 you will find sleep dresses, hats, thermal tops and bottoms, and two-piece PJ's. Each come in soft mellow colors that bring simplicity and comfort to the bedtime routine or for cold weather layering.  

Merino wool is a natural material that is really quite desirable for sleepwear. Buddy is a hot and sweaty sleeper so I always go with 100% cotton for him to sleep in. I really didn't think another option existed besides synthetics like polyester. After reading a bit about Simply Merino and their Merino wool PJ's, I was excited to test them out on Buddy and see if our options to choose from would broaden a bit!

Putting your children in Merino wool has lots of benefits that I was surprised to find. First of all, Merino wool is incredibly soft and yummy to the touch. At first glance (and feel) I probably would have told you that these were made of a 100% combed cotton. They look and feel that similar. The wool is also breathable and helps regulate body temperature. Even if Buddy does get too warm the Merino wool will wick away any moisture to help keep him dry. Not only do I get a breathable material like cotton, but also one that is naturally fire resistant without being chemically treated. This makes them a safe option that I'm really happy I found.
The quality is also beautiful and we love this green! They are a relatively thin material, but incredibly soft as I mentioned and made to last through repeated washings. They're machine washable by the way, in case you were thinking that Merino wool is high maintenance. It's easy! They also don't hold on to odor like synthetic materials do so no need to worry about that either. As far as fit goes, these pyjamas are great. They are slim fitting but the ribbed feel of the Merino wool allow for a bit of stretch for a really comfortable fit. The rear also has seams on each side instead of one down the rear which is especially comfortable. I like that the waist band is a little wider than most.
If your child is between sizes, I'd suggest sizing up. Buddy is wearing a size 5, despite measuring as a 4. The top is a little long this way, but that means no bare back in the middle of the night. You can also see the generous length of the bottoms on Buddy, yet they stay up around the ankles. You can size up without much worry as you can see. Simply Merino also suggests using these for thermal layering which is a great idea. Because they're fitted, they can easily add extra warmth and help regulate body temperature as a base layer in cold weather, or be used just as a layering piece at any time.

My only feedback would be that I'd prefer screen printed tags instead of sewn-in ones. Buddy complained right away that the tags were bothering him so I had to cut them out. Otherwise, he loves them! He calls them his "fast pajamas" because he thinks he can run faster in them and he races around the house like a car. Go figure. :)
 
Simply Merino pyjamas are a great option for PJ's as we go into winter and even colder weather. Keep your babies and kiddos warm and cozy! I also love how simple it is for siblings to match colors and/or PJ styles with Simply Merino. It would be so fun for siblings to open together and get to match. These PJ's would be a wonderful Christmas Eve gift if you have a tradition of opening a movie night gift box with new pajamas like we're starting this year. No matter how you do it, you simply can't go wrong with Simply Merino.
