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.

Merino Sleepwear

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.

 The  key  findings  were that Sleeping in Merino wool:

  • 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.
