Merino for babies

May 18, 2009 Filed under About babies

A new Mum has heard that merino is really good for keeping babies warm without being too heavy or bulky. She asked how other mothers get on if the baby seems to be allergic to wool and gets itchy and red where the wool touches the baby’s skin.
