Lamington Merino Baby Socks and Tights – A Natural Choice!
Merino wool products have become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly for babies. From socks to sleeping bags, merino wool has become the number one choice for parents. But why is Merino wool so popular and what makes it so magical?  Merino wool has unique properties that make it highly desirable.
  • Merino wool is incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. The fibers are finer than traditional wool, making it less scratchy and itchy.
  • Merino wool is an excellent insulator, trapping body heat it can retain warmth even when wet.
  • Merino wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture which helps regulate body temperature and keep you dry.
  • Merino wool is a renewable resource, and its production has a lower environmental impact than many synthetic materials. Additionally, many Merino wool producers use sustainable and ethical farming practices.

Known for their beautiful designs and merino wool composition, they are the natural choice for discerning parents.  Lamington’s award-winning knee-high baby socks, are widely reputed as “the socks that stay up and stay on”! 
Lamington baby socks and tights are designed specifically for infants and young children. They are designed to be soft and gentle on a baby's delicate skin and to keep little feet warm and protected. Babies have a harder time regulating their body temperature, and their little feet can get cold quickly. Wearing merino can help keep little people warm and comfortable, which can also promote better sleep. When a baby's feet are warm, it can help stabilise body temperature promoting better sleep.
Research has shown that keeping a baby's feet warm, along with other techniques like swaddling and using white noise, can help soothe fussy babies and improve sleep quality.
It's important to note that while warm feet can be helpful for promoting sleep, it's essential to monitor a baby's body temperature to ensure they don't become overheated. Dressing babies in lightweight, breathable layers and keeping the room temperature between 20-22°C can help maintain a comfortable and safe sleep environment.
When selecting baby socks, it's essential to choose the right size to ensure a comfortable fit. Socks that are too tight can constrict circulation and cause discomfort, while socks that are too loose can easily slip off and become a choking hazard. It's also important to consider the material and thickness of the socks based on the climate and the baby's activity level.
Merino tights can be a great alternative to socks for babies. If the weather is cold, tights can help keep a baby's legs, feet and tummy warm. Additionally, tights can help keep a nappy in place and prevent it from sagging or leaking. Lamington has a full range of baby tights from size newborn, all tights are 70% merino wool.
