Mini Merino Review and Giveaway
Merino is perfect for kids - it is natural, it keeps them warm and toasty, it keeps them dry when they sweat, it doesn't itch, it's lightweight and it's comfortable. It's perfect for keeping them warm outdoors all winter long, and they'll even want to wear it to bed too. What's great for the mums (or dads) is that it can be machine washed and dryed over and over and it won't lose its shape or pill.
Mini Merino kids clothing is made in New Zealand from 100% pure New Zealand merino wool so it's silky soft, snugly and doesn't itch (ideal for children with eczema or sensitive skin) and is naturally fire retardant. merino fibres naturally wick moisture away from the body and in winter they trap air to help insulate the body ie. help regulate your body temperature to keep you cool when you're hot and warm when you're cold (or wet). The fabric handles beautifully through wash after wash, retaining its functionality, body and appearance.
Mini Merino garments come in two weights, the light-weight superfine merino (190gm) is ideal for year round use while the mid-weight jersey knit (260gm) is great for those cooler winter days.
We chat with Tessa Larsen the woman behind Mini Merino
What is the most important information you would like to share about your company/product: Our products are designed in New Zealand, made in New Zealand from New Zealand’s finest merino available.
What is its main appeal/strength: We have a number of points of difference from similar businesses which are:
Our sizes go from 1 to 8 years (many others only go to 2 or 3 yrs)
Our long sleeve tee’s are slim fitting so they can be worn as outerwear or underwear (they look great under a tee shirt) and the extra length ensures they don’t ride up.
Our colour range is extensive to say the least, our colours are bold and fresh ie Grasshopper Green
We have just released a NEW Mid-weight merino (260gsm) range. Included in this is a Zip front jersey, beanie and caterpillar (neckwarmer / headband). There is little on the market for kids in this weight merino.
