Burda 9636 For stretch knits.
Try any 100% merino for this pattern and don't use fleece as baby will sweat and over heat. Plunket does not recommend fleece for babies for that reason.
Use some of the merino fabrics from out other listings from NZ Merino and Fabrics as merino is perfect for babies as it is soft, non itch, heat regulating and 100% natural. It is repels moisture and won't burn like fleece or flannelette.
Why Merino for babies:
Warm In Winter, Cool In Summer:
Merino creates a micro-climate around baby’s body, creating a layer of warmth in winter and wicking moisture away from their skin in summer. Merino fibres breathe, keeping your baby dry and comfortable.
Easy To Care For:
Merino is machine washable in cool water. Merino is a naturally water repellent fibre, allowing for spills to be wiped up before staining occurs.
Merino fibres can stretch over 30% and still recover to their natural shape. Any mum who has tried to wrap their newborn in a muslin or cotton wrap will know the frustration of it coming undone in minutes. Merino is naturally stretchy, so you get a nearly wriggle proof wrap.
Soft and beautiful to touch. Merino can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, and then when it does get wet, it stays warm.
Merino is naturally fire retardant. It is self extinguishing, meaning it will not melt or stick to your baby’s skin. It also has high UV protection, keeping your baby safe from the harshness of the sun.
Merino fibre is longer and stronger and less likely to pill.
