Which Wearable Blanket is right for my child?
We offer the Wearable Blanket in 2 weight options: Warmest and Lightest; with and without sleeves. To decide on the ideal weight, think about the temperature of your child’s room at night using our temperature guide to help you. To assist in choosing a style, factor in the habits of your little sleeper.
The sleeveless design suits kids who tend to overheat, giving them extra ventilation through the armholes. Sleeveless suits are also great for younger sleepers who are still learning to dress themselves as the big armholes are easily accessible for their little arms. If your little sleeper is more sensitive to cold and doesn’t mind the extra covering around their arms, then they will love the cosy, snug fit of the sleeved design.
What size should I choose?
Our Wearable Blankets are designed with a generous fit. Our sizes are guided by the child’s age. See our size guide for further measurement and sizing advice.
Alternatively, allow your child maximum room to grow by selecting one size up from their age.
If your child is 2 years old, choose size which fits 3-4years.
If your child is 3 years old, choose size which fits 4-5years.
Given this, we estimate the Wearable Blanket will last for approximately 2 years of wear.
How can the Wearable Blanket help my child sleep better?
The Wearable Blanket will keep your child warm and protected if he/she is prone to kicking off their blankets at night. Staying warm and comfortable will help them sleep better. Children can wake up during the night for many reasons. The Wearable Blanket works as a wonderful solution to keep your child from waking up on chilly nights. However, it is not a miracle sleepsuit for sleepless children.
What age range is the Wearable Blanket best suitable for?
Our size range caters to children from the ages of 1 to 5 years. The Wearable Blanket is most suitable for children of walking age who are either toilet trained or wears training nappies. The suit is designed for movement, allowing your little one to get out of bed and go to the bathroom by themselves.
The long zip in the front makes getting in and out of the garment easy. If your child is dexterous and mobile, they can effortlessly pull down the front zip and slide their arms out. For kids who are still learning to dress themselves, choosing the sleeveless Wearable Blanket will make way for savvy practice.
Will the wool make my sleeper scratch?
In one word: No
We make all our products from 100% Australian Merino wool which is regarded as the softest and finest quality all over the world. Along with it feeling light and soft against your child’s skin, Merino wool is also hypoallergenic, which means it’s suitable for the more sensitive souls.
Why no TOG Ratings?
A TOG rating refers to the measure of the warmth of a fibre under different temperatures. They’re given to products made from synthetic fibres because of their low breathability and inability to adjust to variances when tested under different temperatures. A TOG rating gives you a guide as to which garment will protect the wearer from overheating.
Our Wearable Blankets are made from 100% Merino Wool; a natural fibre which breathes and adjusts according to temperature.So, instead of TOG, we offer 2 different weights; Warmest and Lightest. Versatile and all-weather-wearing, combine your Wearable Blanket with Layer Sets from our collection to adjust to a wider temperature range.
Will my child overheat?
All our products are made from 100% Australian Merino wool. This natural fibre transmits airflow throughout the body and releases it when your snug sleeper gets too hot. Unlike synthetic fibres that trap air, wool allows the body to cool down steadily, eliminating the risk of overheating. Say cheerio to clamminess and say hello to a more comfy sleep.
Why no closing at the feet?
We have consciously designed The Wearable Blanket to have open feet for the following 3 reasons:
- To make it more practical for your child to walk in.
- To give the sleepsuit longer wearability (we advise you to buy one size up which will not compromise your child’s ability to move freely).
- To give more flexibility with washing (the body of the garment is made in Merino wool so it doesn’t require regular washing). If socks are worn separately, they can be changed as often as required without the need to wash the entire garment.
How do I keep tiny feet warm?
Simply by using socks. These will keep your child warm while they sleep and are easy for them to move and walk around in when they wake.
We recommend pairing the Wearable Blanket with some trusty wool socks or something similar.
How do I take care of my Wearable Blanket?
We’ve made all our products as practical and convenient as possible. All our wool products, including the Wearable Blankets, are machine washable. They are also quick-drying, which is perfect for the cooler months. Being wool, our products don’t soil easily and stains can be effortlessly spot cleaned and air dried in place of the regular washing cycle. This will give your child a longer wear time and lighten your washing load!
