FIVE REASONS TO SLEEP IN MERINO THIS WINTER

What sleepwear we wear on a cold winter night significantly impacts the quality of our sleep. Picking the perfect pyjamas to suit your needs is vital to create a favorable sleeping environment. And many of us struggle with that. Some settle with itchy woolen pyjamas, while some with harsh and heavy sleepwear. 

It’s time to add merino wool sleepwear to your closet. This natural fiber comes from merino sheep, usually found in Uruguay, Chile, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia. This type of wool is thinner and softer than regular wool—making it pleasant to wear next to the skin. 

Read along to understand how to pick the best winter pyjamas and why merino wool is the best for cozy winter nights!

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN WINTER PYJAMAS 

When choosing the perfect thermal pyjamas, keep these tips in mind: 

BREATHABLE WARMTH 

On winter nights, you want to stay warm without overheating. Sleeping in non-breathable pyjamas can cause you to sweat, which might disturb your sleep. 

Your warm winter pyjamas should be breathable and help you maintain the ideal sleeping temperature. Additionally, merino wool has a water-repelling surface. These two attributes of merino wool help support our body’s thermoregulation. 

MOISTURE REGULATING 

If you overheat, you will sweat. But your pyjamas do not have to be sweaty and clammy. Merino wool pyjamas have natural superior moisture management capabilities. 

Merino wool fibers can absorb up to 35% of their weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch, so you don't need to worry about sweating while sleeping. 

ULTRA-LIGHT 

Your sleepwear should feel like a second skin. When you feel comfortable, you will likely fall asleep faster, and will enjoy a longer, and deeper sleep.  

The winter pyjamas should be feather-light and not feel bulky. Too heavy materials can cause discomfort and interrupt a good night’s sleep. 

SUPER SOFT 

The winter pyjamas should be so soft that it feels like a second skin. While sleeping, blood flow in our skin increases, and we become sensitive to touch. That’s why the softest pyjamas are the most comfortable pyjamas. 

FUNCTIONAL AND WARM DESIGN 

An average person moves about 13 times while asleep. To achieve a good night’s sleep, you need to feel comfortable and aid in your body’s natural movements. This ensures you get a night of uninterrupted and longer sleep. 

Thermal pyjamas with cuffs and hems are an excellent choice as they can hold in warmth rather than let it slip away.

HERE ARE FIVE REASONS TO SLEEP IN MERINO WOOL THIS WINTER! 

1. NATURAL THERMOREGULATING PROPERTIES 

The apparel industry often refers to merino wool as nature's high-tech fiber, thanks to its natural insulating properties. During winters, the fibers' air pockets trap air, keeping you warm in cold temperatures. 

But this mechanism also makes merino wool perfect for warm summers as it expels sweat away from your skin and keeps you cool. It sounds like an ideal fabric all year round! 

 2. KEEPS YOU SWEAT-FREE 

Essentially, the merino wool fibers can hold moisture in vapor form. The fiber strands are so porous that they can soak water up to one-third of their weight. 

This gives the merino wool fabric excellent absorption properties! The body’s natural heat condenses the absorbed moisture inside the fiber, keeping you dry and warm. 

3. ODOR-PROOF AND ANTIBACTERIAL 

Another unique characteristic of merino wool can be attributed to the wool fat – lanolin, found in the fibers. Lanolin prevents the settling in of bacteria, also responsible for the foul odor you get from sweating. 

It is safe to say that clothes made of merino wool remain fresh even after being worn for a long time. 

 4. SOFT, SKIN-FRIENDLY, AND HYPOALLERGENIC 

To put into perspective, a single strand of merino wool fiber is as fine as one-third the diameter of human hair. Finer-than-thread-like fibers with temperature-regulating and moisture-wicking properties make merino wool hypoallergenic and skin-friendly. 

Studies have shown that merino wool fabric can have a healing impact on eczema conditions. It’s your go-to fabric, especially if you have sensitive skin! 

 5. NATURAL, RENEWABLE, AND BIODEGRADABLE 

Merino wool is obtained from merino sheep. Depending on the breed, a single merino sheep can grow about 5 to 40 kilograms of wool annually. The source of merino wool makes it natural and renewable. 

The wool is made of proteins and keeps sheep comfy in temperatures as low as -15°C up to 32°C. The proteins can be absorbed back into the soil, making the fabric biodegradable. Twelve months in the ground, and you won’t find any residue!
