About us

How we started:

A little bit about us: Sweet Cheeks Merino is a New Zealand company that was formed by two mothers 9 years ago looking for a product that would keep their babies warm that had hyper allergenic properties due to wool allergies.  Merino wool was the obvious choice of fabric due to it being exceptionally warm, and its great breathable properties.  Unlike regular wool, which can be scratchy against delicate young skin, merino wool has a silky outer layer making it super soft to the touch. Its hypoallergenic properties ensures it’s safe for babies with sensitive skin, eczema or allergies.  And in some cases has been shown to reduce allergies.

We create beautiful babies and children’s clothing, using only the finest 100% pure New Zealand Merino wool that is not only 100% natural but ecologically sound.  All our merino products are proudly grown, milled and made in New Zealand.  It is a 100% natural fibre grown in an alpine environment in the South Island of New Zealand. The sheep have to endure a range of climates from snow and freezing conditions in winter to hot dry summers and their wool has evolved over centuries to enable them to handle those extremes.

As a result, our Sweet Cheeks Merino clothing feels silky soft, is machine washable, non-itchy, resists odour, dries quickly, is exceptionally breathable, and regulates temperature to keep kids at an ideal temperature in all climates.
