The idea behind the brand...
"When I first started Merino Kids back in 2003, it was born out of necessity for my first daughter Lily. As a mother researching the availability of baby, infant and toddler sleepwear products, I was shocked at the number of synthetic products that were flooding the market. More so I was dismayed at the size and state of the unregulated global industry. Using my background in textile design and my knowledge of merino as a 100% natural wonder fibre, I decided to make a difference."
-Amie Nilsson

Award-winning design
These values now run across a range of products designed to make a difference to the lives of families with young children. Their success is proven and global demand for the award-winning designs is growing daily.

The Go Go Bag creation
Amie Nilsson is an internationally recognised designer, specialising in the design of 100% natural products to promote the health and vitality of babies and toddlers. Her first product, the Go Go Bag™ was created when Lily kept waking up cold in the night after wriggling out of her blankets, and Amie's search for natural products uncovered no natural solutions.

Only natural materials
"We use 100% natural materials to create finer, safer garments that insulate that insulate and breathe better in both hot and cold environments, ensuring young children and babies are perfectly adapted to their sleeping environments."
