Merino Kids™ is an international award-winning textile company from New Zealand that specialises in using 100% natural fibres, for the design of newborn, baby, infant and toddler sleepwear. The company was founded by Amie Nilsson in 2003 and since that time has grown significantly to now become one of the global leaders and commentators of using natural fibres for young children.
“When I first started Merino Kids back in 2003, it was born out of necessity for my first daughter Lily. As a mother researching the availability of baby, infant and toddler sleepwear products I was shocked at the number of synthetic products that were flooding the market. More so I was dismayed at the size and state of the unregulated global industry. Using my background in textile design and my knowledge of Merino as a 100% natural wonder fibre, I decided to make a difference.” – Amie Nilsson
