How do we love our Woolino sleep sack? Let me count the ways! Review and #GIVEAWAY {US and Canada}

I LOVE wool! I love wool diaper covers, I love wool sweaters I love sheep! Ok, why do I love wool? I love wool because it is a natural fiber, its sustainable, it is natural antibacterial, and it is naturally fire-retardent!
When I was contacted by Woolino and asked to test their 100% Austrailian merino wool baby sleep sack, I jumped on the chance!
This is what I received:
This is the information printed on the back of the package:
This is the sleep sack outside of the package:
Let me tell you a little bit about the Woolino sleep sack before we go any further into the review. This baby sleep sack is designed to fit a baby from 3- 24 months of age. Here is a picture of the total length of the sleep sack:
As you can see, it is very long! This is the size setting you would use for a toddler (like in my case)!
It is also adjustable! There are metal snaps that you can use to fold the bottom of the sleep sack up to make it shorter in length for a smaller baby!
Baby Giveaways Galore did an awesome video review of the Woolino sleep sack, you can watch that video here!

Here is some really useful information about the Woolino sleep sack taken from their website:
"The Ultimate Baby Sleep Sack:
Have you ever worried about which TOG to use and whether your baby will be too hot or cold while sleeping? With this one-of-a-kind baby sleep sack there is no need to worry because the luxuriously-soft merino wool lining naturally regulates baby's body temperature to ensure s/he sleeps safely and comfortably all year round.

Our 100% natural baby sleeping bags are made from the world’s most superior natural fiber – the silky soft allergy-safe Australian merino wool. This lightweight, itch-free, and most technically advanced natural fiber in the world is THE perfect fiber to wear next to a child’s delicate skin. It breathes, regulates body temperature, manages moisture, it is non-allergenic, naturally fire resistant, naturally antibacterial, easy care and durable. It is simply naturally perfect.

Woolino's luxurious merino baby sleep sacks are also a great value as they come in one standard size that fits babies 3 months to 2 years old. This will save you from buying lots of different sizes and TOG ratings. They are designed to be worn in all seasons as merino keeps your baby warm in winter and cool in summer. They are machine washable and can be tumble dried on low heat.

Discover the beautiful, practical and stylishly designed Woolino Baby Sleep Sack that will allow your baby (and yourself) to sleep peacefully through the night. Learn how is Woolino different from other infant sleepsacks."

"A Sleep Sack is a Smart Choice:
Help reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
Every year approximately 2,500 babies in US alone still die from SIDS.* There has been a great effort worldwide to educate parents and other caregivers on how to reduce the risks associated with SIDS. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend the use of baby sleep sacks instead of blankets that may be hazardous to babies.

A baby sleep sack eliminates the need of blankets that can easily cover baby’s face during sleep and cause suffocation –a risk factor for SIDS. Baby cannot slip inside the sleep sack like she/he can with blankets and other loose covers. It also promotes back sleeping - a recommendation for reducing the risks of SIDS.

Help your baby sleep better
Babies cannot kick-off their sleep sack so they stay covered all night. It helps them sleep comfortably through the night and not wake up cold. A sleep sack also prevents baby’s legs from getting caught in-between crib bars and make it harder for older babies to climb out of their cribs.

Make your baby fall asleep more easily
Babies learn to associate their sleep sack with sleep, which helps them fall asleep more easily. Woolino baby sleep sack comes with a travel bag for easy transportation to help baby continue their sleep routine even when out of home and visiting friends or family.

And lastly, "Why Choose Woolino
100% Natural and naturally safe

The Ultimate Baby Sleep Sack from Woolino is the best baby sleeping bag for your child. 100% natural, made from luxuriously soft itch-free 100% Australian merino wool on the inside & 100% pure cotton on the outside.

Many baby sleep sacks or sleepers on the market today are made from micro-fleece polyester or filled with synthetics that are non or poorly-breathable and can make your baby sweat and very uncomfortable. Synthetics can also contribute to overheating, which is a major risk factor for SIDS. In addition, what many people don’t know is that micro fleece polyester is highly flammable material and it is usually treated with dangerous flame retardant chemicals in order to pass the children fire safety regulations.

Woolino sleep sack is made from the world’s most superior natural fiber – the superfine Australian merino wool that is a natural fire retardant. Woolino baby sleep sack has not been treated with any flame retardant chemicals. Our products have been tested to meet or exceed the latest U.S. flammability standards for fire safety, and are certified to be lead and phthalates free for the safety of your child.

Can be worn throughout the year
Most of the infant sleep sacks come in either winter or summer weight/TOG rating. Woolino is one-of-a-kind baby sleep sack because it is designed to be worn in all seasons, throughout the year. The lightweight merino layer keeps your baby warm in winter and cool in summer. Merino has the natural ability to create a micro-climate around baby’s skin and maintain a constant temperature around baby’s body. It will absorb and release moisture away from baby’s body to keep baby cool when it is hot, or trap and circulate warm air to keep baby warm when it is cold.

Grows with your baby
It comes in one universal size that fits babies 3 months to 2 years old. For smaller babies, each armhole can be made smaller by using an extra snap. The length of the sack can also be shortened by folding the bottom of the sack up and, using additional snaps, attaching it to each side.

Designed to be practical
Our merino baby sleeping bag opens up completely flat with convenient shoulder snaps so you can easily put your baby in it without waking him/her up. It has a zipper along the side and bottom of the sack that starts from the bottom for easy nighttime diaper changes.

Woolino sleep sacks are machine washable and can be tumble dried on low temperature. They come with a matching travel bag, ready for holidays and visits to grandparents.

Reduces the risk of SIDS
Woolino sleep sack is a healthy and safe alternative to blankets - it helps baby stay covered, sleep comfortably through the night and not wake up cold, but it also reduces the risk of suffocation as fabric stays clear of baby’s face.

Moreover, exceptionally breathable merino wool regulates body temperature and thus prevents overheating –a risk factor for SIDS. It is sleeveless to reduce the risk of baby re-breathing into the sleeve. It also promotes back sleeping.

Best value

In addition to allowing you baby to sleep comfortably in the best natural fibers, by buying a Woolino sleepsack you also get the best value because you don’t have to buy a different baby sleep sack every six months. Woolino is the only sleep sack your baby will ever need, in winter or summer, until your baby turns two years old.

Finest quality Australian Merino

Woolino baby sleep sacks are made with Woolmark and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified merino wool.

Woolmark is the most recognized brand in textiles and clothing, used to distinguish products made from pure new wool. It guarantees top quality of natural wool products – our supplier quality is carefully tested and guaranteed by AWI (Australian Wool Innovation).

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for all stages of textile production. This certification ensures that products are free from harmful substances. There is no finer certification than the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

Woolino Guarantee & Warranty

We stand behind our products. All Woolino products come with 30 days "no questions asked" return policy and six month warranty against the manufacturer's defects so you can rest assured that you're buying the finest quality garments for your baby."

The Woolino has a very generous zippered opening which makes it really easy to get on and off your baby. It also makes it easy for those middle of the night diaper changes:

My 2 yo wears this sleepsack and he is able to stand up and walk in the sleep sack too! Plenty of room!
So I put him down for a nap in the Woolino and he slept almost 3 hours (which is about normal)! I love the fact that this sleep sack can be used year-round. Many times when we think of wool, we think of Grandma's itchy wool sweater she always wears at Christmas! Let me tell you though, Merino wool is a totally different animal! It is soft, breathable and lets the body's temperature self-regulate! We love it!

You can purchase a Woolino sleep sack directly from their website! They come in 3 beautiful colors, cream, princess pink or sky blue! Currently, the cream and sky blue are on sale for $84.99, and the princess pink is only $79.99 (from $99.98)!
