Our Duvet sleeping bag is one of the warmest and snuggliest winter sleeping bags available! It’s the only bag in world which uses a quilted wool filling for additional warmth and temperature regulation, as most winter bags are filled with a synthetic polyester or cotton wadding.
It can be used from approximately 14 to 22 degrees by varying the clothing inside the bag. Ideal from autumn through till spring, and cooler nights in summer.
The outside layer is gorgeous 30% merino/70% soft cotton blend fabric. This beautifully soft fabric is knitted specially for woolbabe!
The bag is filled with a snug layer of 100% Australian wool filling, which gives amazing warmth and temperature regulating properties. It has the feel of a duvet or thick blanket, and many babies seem to sleep much better in this heavier feeling of wool. The weight of the filling also means less wriggling for a lot of children.
The duvet woolbabe is lined with a lovely 100% cotton lining, which is soft and smooth against your baby’s skin.
The combination of wool and cotton offers the best of both worlds, providing a light cover for your child in warmer conditions. These conditions are often more difficult to gauge what your child should sleep in. The wool component still provides the qualities which react to changes in body temperatures, keeping baby at a constant body temperature, which encourages everyone to have a good nights sleep.
This was was previously called the woolbabe ’winter’ bag, so this may still be on some swing tags and labels.
Outer fabric (yarn dyed stripe) 30% Australian merino/ 70% cotton.
Filling is 100% Australian wool
Lining is 100% cotton (white in all options)
Toffee Apple - cherry red and natural stripe.
This woolbabe can be used in your carseat or buggy with a 5-point harness. It has a double-ended zip on the side of the bag, shoulder domes on both sides. There is a travel slot in the front and back of the bag.
Should I buy a front or side zip woolbabe?
The main considerations are how wriggly your child is and how often you will use the travel slot. If your child is very wriggly or likes to stand up in the cot we recommend a front-zip bag, as they may otherwise pop open the shoulder domes on a side zip bag.
The travel slot in the front-zip bag is only in the back, which means that little feet are unlikely to go through the slot which can happen with a side-zip bag. However if you use the travel slot often you may prefer the slot in the front and back.
One other advantage of the side-zip woolbabe is that it opens out completely flat. This can make nappy changing a bit easier.
The 3-24 (months measured shoulder to bottom) - 95cm. Domes under the arms for a snug fit with babies 3-6 months.
Toddler size to fit children 2-4 yrs (from 12kg) - (measured shoulder to bottom) - 117cm
All woolbabe sleeping bags have been tested and rated LOW FIRE DANGER.

Gorgeous and thick - zip opens both top and bottom plus domes on both arms - love the quality way more than my three merino kids bags!

I just got one of these lovely duvet woolbabe sleeping bags and our nine month old has gone back to sleeping all night without a peep after a month or so of regular wakings! Best purchase I've made so far - she is kept so toasty warm and no need for the heater to be on. Also helps with her routine, she starts waving 'bye bye' as soon as it's zipped up :)
