Merino Sleeping Bag with Feet
The Merino Sleeping Bag with Feet is genuinely a superhero when it comes to baby’s sleep, thanks to the unique super powers of merino wool. It improves the quality of sleep by creating a micro climate around baby’s body by regulating body temperature and wicking away moisture.
The feet can be tucked away using the hidden studs or used for the baby/toddler to waddle its way around before sleep time. A genius feature we believe.
Made out of fine merino wool, the Ko-coon signature fabric is soft and silky to touch. Fine merino wool is scientifically proven the best sleeping wear choice for babies, including eczema babies.
The Ko-coon Merino Baby Sleeping Bag with Feet is designed to fit from 3 months right up to 24 months+.
The TOG rating describes the warmth or “Thermal Resistance” of a product and is widely used to explain warmth levels of duvets. Unlike duvets, infant sleeping bags have lower tog rating numbers. The TOG indicates approximately how many blankets the sleeping bag is equivalent to. Bags with rating of 0.5 and 1 or below are for spring/summer use. Bags with rating 2-2.5 are for autumn/winter.
Sleeping bags with polyester or man-made fiber fillings have to go through a standard testing to be TOG rated, especially to avoid the rick of overheating.
Merino wool has it all! The sleeping bags made with Merino wool are not TOG rated, as these natural fibers adjust the warmth according to temperature. This is one of the reasons why natural fiber Merino sleeping wear is so strongly recommended. The merino wool is highly breathable, naturally regulates baby’s body temperature, keeping baby warm in winter and cool in summer. As a result, traditional TOG tests (which are designed to test synthetic fabrics) are not an accurate indicator of the warmth of merino products.
Even if our Merino Sleeping Bag with Feet seems lightweight, it is warmer than a thicker sleep bag.
This is a common concern if you don’t know much about merino wool. Merino wool is lighter than traditional wool as well as a lot of synthetic materials on the market. Many believe that merino wool is too lightweight to be warm in winter and because it is wool, it must be too hot for summer.
These are common misconceptions. The nature and the sheep tested merino wool at extreme temperatures. The merino breathes and wicks away moisture (sweat) in summer, yet insulates in winter. Gives one the greatest warmth for weight, while being extremely light and soft.
The air is trapped between fibers and creates a body of warm insulating air. Merino wool fibers naturally wick away moisture. While heavier and bulkier synthetic fibers and cotton can seem ‘warmer’ they actually trap body moisture against the skin, causing your baby to sweat and overheat, to develop rush and eczema.
Our merino sleeping bags are recommended to be used in room temperatures between 17-25 degrees. Simply adjust the layers of underwear or sleepwear worn beneath it to suit the nursery temperature.
We recommend to be used in conjunction with our Ko-coon Baby Sleeping Gown or other natural fiber garments (i.e made out of cotton or hemp). We recommend you also regularly check your little one behind the neck or on the stomach to ensure they are not too warm or too hot.
How to care for the Merino Sleeping Bag with Feet
Ko-coon merino garments are made out of untreated merino wool which has not been subject to any chemical treatments to improve wash-ability. As it’s untreated wool and contains lanolin it naturally rejects dirt, is repellent to bacterial growth and is self cleaning – therefore it does not need as much washing as cotton.
Air garments frequently and they can be worn many times without washing and you can spot wash them if something has been spilled on them.
We recommend gentle hand wash in cold water with wool detergent without agitation to ensure the garment does not shrink. Stretch the wool into shape when wet and pull lengthwise and lay flat or on the line to dry naturally, avoiding direct heat.
