Poppet Natural Merino Baby Sleep Gown
The Poppet merino sleeping gown is the perfect nightwear for babies. It's draw string tie at the bottom of the gown allows for ease of changing diapers. Each garment has our exquisitely hand printed sheep & lamb motif on the front and is made from superfine natural merino fabric.
Evolution has endowed the merino sheep of New Zealand with an amazing wool fiber that scientists cannot replicate. No artificial fabric can match the all-round performance of merino; it insulates, absorbs moisture and breathes superbly, is naturally fire resistant, itch-free, repels stains and odors, and is silky-soft yet highly durable.
The superfine natural merino fabric is luxuriously soft, allergy-safe, and readily absorbs and releases moisture to create the perfect safe micro-climate around your baby's body in any season.
Nursery room temperatures can fluctuate and a baby often wakes either too hot or too cold because they take time to develop the full capability to regulate their own body temperature. Merino fabric has the remarkable natural ability to cool or warm your baby's body, regulating their body temperature to keep them cozy without overheating. The way this works is the merino fabric captures and circulates air to insulate baby when the room temperature falls, and releases excess body heat and moisture as the room temperature rises. Baby stays warm and dry through night and day without overheating.
Merino wool is nature's smart fiber and the fabric of our times. Soft as silk, yet durable. Warm yet breathable.
A 2010 AgResearch study determined that babies sleeping in merino are less likely to overheat or to become damp or chilled compared with synthetic polar fleece. Naturally fire resistant and rated low fire risk so no need for polyester-fireproofing chemicals that can irritate baby skin. Machine washable, quick-drying, can be tumble-dried.
The perfect sleepwear garment for young babies up to one year of age.
Use all-year-round for rooms 64°F to 75°F. Remarkable ability to regulate body temperature so baby won't overheat
Remarkably Merino is naturally anti-microbial, stain and odor resistant and can be machine washed and tumble dried.
Hand printed sheep and lamb design on front chest.
Draw string tie at bottom of gown allows for easy diaper changes while keeping feet covered and warm

I wish all baby clothes were made of this materialNov 29, 2012
By anna elrod
We have been using Poppet's gown for a few nights now, and it does a fabulous job of keeping baby comfortable. It is very soft and feels more silky than the Hocosa cap we have that is 30% silk. No cold hands, no sweaty head, no ridiculous pile of blankets. The fold over cuffs keep baby's hands comfy when they wiggle out of the blankets or after baby no longer needs (or wants!) to be swaddled. But my favorite feature is that since washing it in Eucalan lavender wool wash it is slightly water repellent and smells divine even after being spit up on a couple of times. My baby is a spitter, big time, all the time, projectile, sprayed, you name it. We go through a lot of clothes because of this attribute, but one gown keeps her dry and comfy every night. If it smells less than lovely I hand wash it and hang it up in the morning; by late afternoon it's ready to wear. Keeping a tiny baby warm is critical, and pretty tough to do when they keep getting their clothes wet by continual spitting up. Wet cotton feels cold and merino seems to be the solution. I am madly in love with this material! All natural, water repellent, odor neutralizing, fire retardant, moisture regulating, dry to the touch after absorbing 30% of it's weight in moisture, warm when wet....I think I should work in the marketing department. Anywho, I want all baby clothes to be made of this stuff.
A word on size: it is bigger than the rest of our 0-3 month clothes. The neck may be a little big on smaller newborns, but over 7 pounds you should be fine. It think it will fit well past 3 months on an average size baby.
Oh, the only criticism I have is that it's not convenient to be worn in car seats or other things with a harness strap between the legs. Flip side is that it's very convenient for late/early diaper changes.
Update: We did outgrow this at 3 months after all :( At 9 months it was still the best garment baby has had. If our Merino Kids sleep-sack were a garment, it would be right up there with the Poppet gown, but I see it as bedding not clothing.

The perfect sleeping companionApr 24, 2013
By Michelle Elise
I have done a lot of searching for something my little one can wear to sleep in that will keep her warm but also allow her to regulate her heat. This does the trick. One morning I woke up to find that my husband has put our little one in the Poppet gown with a fleece swaddle over the top. It wasn't a particularly cold night so I was convinced that she would be hot. To my surprise she was the perfect temperature. I love the softness of the material and the fact that it keep my two month old just the right temperature even when it gets wet from a little spit up (which she does a lot of). I am considering buying another so we can always have one clean.
The only thing I'd change is the tie at the bottom. The strings tend to get pulled into the gown which makes getting them out a little tricky. I may tie them together to avoid this problem in the future.

Good but a little bit too short.
My son is 9 months old and the biggest size is almost too small.
