The Balmoral Baby Beanie is made in New Zealand from 100% superfine Balmoral merino. Because a newborn baby’s head is so large in comparison to the rest of his body (approximately 25%) your newborn baby is also able to lose more heat from his/her head. That is why it is a good idea to cover your baby’s head – especially in a cool environment.
Balmoral superfine merino wool is a natural fibre and is extremely soft. It has unique temperature regulating qualities which keeps babies warm when it's cold, and cool when it's warm. Research has shown that babies in or on Merino sleep better, cry less and put on weight faster. We at Balmoral Station select only the best wool for our baby clothes and our 5000 merino sheep provide us a Sustainable Renewable Traceable Natural resource every year. It truly is the best clothing for new born babies.
