Merino wool is not itchy. It is incredibly soft. It's perfect for cooler climates, but it also does well in our hot, humid south Georgia climate. The luxurious merino breathes. It will readily absorb perspiration and release it into the air to help prevent your baby from overheating and waking up damp. Merino wool can absorb up to 35% of its own weight. The natural stretch and return of Merino Kids merino fabric combined with the innovative cross-over design of the Merino Kids Cocooi Baby Swaddling Blanket allows for a natural diagonal flow of fabric over a baby's shoulder and across their chest. The soft fabric wings hug your baby close. They can't wriggle free and the cross-over design ensures no fabric bunches up around their face. Unlike other swaddlers, your baby can be safely swaddled while on the go in a car seat or stroller. Merino Kids' safety belt aperture makes it possible! The Cocooi baby swaddling blanket is machine washable and it can be tumble-dried on a low heat setting. Merino is naturally resistant to stains and odors! It does not require frequent washing if aired regularly. Visit http://babysleepbags.com/ and swaddle your baby naturally, with the softest material available. Cocooi is also available to customers in the UK, Europe and world wide from babysleepbags.co.uk! Earlier this year the Merino Kids Cocooi baby swaddler was awarded the Seal of Outstanding DesignQuality in the prestigious 2008 International Forum Product Design Awards. It also featured in the2008 Red Dot Design Awards, which ranks among the largest and most renowned designcompetitions in the world.

Cocooi. Swaddle In Luxury.
If you're expecting, or if you have a new baby, I'm sure you know all about swaddling. But there is a difference in the type of materials that you use to swaddle. "Crafted entirely from New Zealand's finest pure unbleached merino wool, the Merino Kids Cocooi Baby Swaddle is luxuriously soft and 100% natural, renewable and biodegradeable." It contains no spandex, and it has not been treated with chemicals for fire retardance. It is safe to use for babies with allergies, eczema and sensitive skin. Superfine merino wool fiber cannot be duplicated. Merino fiber is one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. This extraordinary fineness combined with its natural crimp produce millions of tiny air pockets. These pockets trap air to insulate your baby on the coldest nights. Merino fiber also has the ability to absorb and release moisture, to cool or warm your baby's body, thus regulating your baby's body temperature so they don't wake up cold or overheated. Since overheating is a possible SIDS contributing factor, you can rest easier knowing your baby is cradled in the finest wool. After all, it has been suggested in medical circles that swaddling a baby in merino can help to lower the risk of SIDS.
