Can I wear my Merino pyjamas in winter and summer?

Yes. In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.

Isn’t wool itchy?

Merino wool fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres. This makes Merino wool feel soft and luxuriously gentle next to your skin. The same Merino fabric is used for next to skin active wear, underwear and babywear.

Caring for your Sleepy Merino pyjamas

How do I wash my Merino pyjamas?

Use a normal warm to cool machine wash cycle with regular PH Neutral powdered or liquid detergent, just find one without whiteners, brighteners, stain removers or enzymes. Separate lights and darks as usual.

Should I use fabric softener?

No. Softeners will coat the Merino fibres and reduce their natural ability to breathe and regulate moisture and temperature.

How should I dry my Merino pyjamas?

Dry flat in shade to best preserve shape and colour. You can dry on the line, but expect some twisting of the garment and seams. As with any garment, inside out and out of excessive sun will help prolong the depth of colour.

Can I iron my Merino pyjamas?

Merino wool bounces back into shape after washing, if dried as above. If you need to, use a cool iron on the wool setting, with the garment inside out.

Can I bleach my Merino pyjamas?

No. Chlorine destroys Merino fibres.

How do I prevent pilling?

Pilling is a natural process that can occur when short fibres in the fabric work their way to the surface. Pilling is reduced with worsted Merino fabrics, such as those used in your pyjamas, as the short fibres are removed by the combing machine, and then the fibres are tightly twisted. Washing your pyjamas within the first three wears will help minimise pilling.
