Merino wool is a game-changer for kids navigating the dynamic environments of school life. As they transition between air-conditioned classrooms and the outdoor playground, the temperature-regulating properties of Merino wool come to the rescue. The fiber's natural ability to regulate body heat ensures that kids stay comfortably warm in chilly classrooms while also remaining cool and fresh during active playtime.

This all-natural, versatile fabric offers the perfect balance of comfort and style, making it the ideal choice for kids to focus on learning and enjoying their day.

Unlike cotton or synthetics, merino wool is naturally temperature regulating, breathable, fire resistant, dries fast and stays warm even when wet.  Ever versatile, your kids can wear our merino shirts as a layering piece or on their own to play, to school, or off hiking in the great outdoors.

Why merino?

We are WILD about WOOL. No other fiber, natural or synthetic, even comes close to matching the multitude of benefits found with wool. As a starting point for kids clothing, so many things about it just make perfect sense. It’s that simple and this complex…

Temperature Regulating

With millions of tiny air pockets, merino wool is the perfect insulator. It creates its own microclimate around the body with unique temperature regulating qualities. It keeps you warm when it's cold, and cool when it's warm. 

Infants and children have a higher surface area to mass ratio than adults so thermal regulation for them is even more important. This makes Nui merino great for everyone and perfect for a newborn's fragile temperature mechanism.

100% Natural & Renewable

Nui merino is a natural resource that is biodegradable, sustainable and a renewable resource, growing back year after year. It is by far the better choice for your child and the environment they will grow up in than synthetics.

For our Merino195 collection we use RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) merino. This certification ensures that wool growers meet rigorous animal welfare, land management and social requirements.

Breathable & Moisture Wicking

Merino is breathable and quick drying. It wicks moisture away from the skin and releases it to the atmosphere. This leaves you dryer and more comfortable. 

Merino can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water before feeling wet, much greater than synthetics.  It also stays warm when wet, unlike cotton. 

It is also antimicrobial which means odor-causing bacteria don't stand a chance.  So you stay dry, warm, odor and sweat free AND it's fire and UV resistant as well.

Easy Care & Quick Drying

Merino is naturally resistant to soiling and often a quick airing will freshen that merino shirt right up. This means less washing, which is great for the environment. Plus, the merino fibers return to their natural shape after every wear, which means wrinkle free. 

It can be machine or hand washed and dries super fast. Being 100% natural it also does not shed thousands of plastic microfibers into the ocean like polyester.  It is soft on skin and soft on the planet.

"Beautiful Quality!

Bought a few of these as a base/mid layer for my toddler in forest school. Nui has the most beautiful rich colors, and the quality is fantastic. Always my pass-down pieces that I treasure! Toddler loves the pocket, stores his favorite rocks in there :)"

"Beautiful, timeless, warm piece!

This shirt is gorgeous! It feels incredibly well made! I love putting it on my daughter, knowing she is wearing sustainable/non toxic fibers and that it’s keeping her warm to the core. I’m so happy with this purchase! I’d say it fits true to size… "

"Absolutely lovely

This item is absolutely lovely, nice beefy weight, and the pocket is super fun. The kids 6y and 10y fit true to usual Nui size for my kids. The Deep Sea color is also beautiful. "
