WHY CHOOSE MERINO
According to The Woolmark Company, “a highly esteemed group of medical professionals from across the world”, having studied many research papers, agreed upon the following conclusions.
1 Ultra fine merino wools, typically from Australia & N.z, with their reduced fibre diameter do not provoke itch and in fact benefit eczema management. Sensations of itch and prickle on the skin are caused due to larger diameter fibres, typically from British breeds of sheep. See diagram below.
2 It has been scientifically proven that merino wool improves sleep quality.
3 Merino wool provides temperature regulation properties.
4 Merino wool improves weight gain of underweight newborns.
5. It’s chalk and cheese.
