Sheep Dreams - get a good night's sleep in Merino... Naturally!
Why you should be wearing Merino to sleep
Falling asleep may be easier than you think in Australian Merino...
Merino is perfect for sleeping in as it breathes, keeps your body at an optimum temperature & you won't overheat, wicks moisture away and is naturally elastic & moves in harmony with your body.
Our different styles of tops and bottoms make the ideal natural fibre pyjamas for a great nights' sleep and also make really comfy lounge wear for everyday!
A good night’s sleep promotes physical and psychological health and it has been shown to boost immunity, optimise memory and cognitive function and is important for managing anxiety.
Backed by science
Wearing Merino wool pyjamas and sleepwear have been shown to help fall asleep faster and have a less disturbed sleep compared to other fibre types.
A recent study was undertaken by the University of Sydney to compare the effect on sleep quality of wool, cotton and polyester sleepwear.
- resulted in less fragmented sleep compared to sleeping in other fabrics.
- reduced the time taken to get to sleep compared with sleeping in cotton and polyester.
- resulted in less total wake time for poor sleepers after sleep onset, compared to sleeping in cotton.
- significantly reduced the time for participants to fall asleep, thereby tending to increase total sleep time
In a 3 year study, it was found that wearing wool sleepwear in the heat resulted in faster sleep onset and waking up less frequently. Sleeping in wool in the cold also saw the same results of a more efficient sleep.

The right sleepwear for you
Choosing the right sleepwear for you can be difficult as everyone is different. here are a few tips and recommendations to choose the right pj's for you!
Firstly consider if you are more comfortable in tight clothing or loose fitting clothes. If you like your sleepwear loose you may just have to go up a size.
Karen is wearing our Lightweight Cardigan which makes a great bed jacket. She wears our teal cardi in size small for a more fitted look for everyday wear. Then she wears our black cadi in a size up with the sleeves pushed up for a more loose fit for bedtime.
Choosing the right style for you really comes down to your preference. You want to choose a pyjama that you feel the most comfortable and that won't have you adjusting it in the middle of the night.
