Amazing!!! I ordered my items on Monday, delivered Wednesday. The quality is so amazing, I love it. My boys have sensitive skin and everything new annoys them.... nothing, no complaints!! I ordered the long tees and leggings (using as pjs) but they have both asked can they have them to wear under their ski gear!! More orders coming your way I feel. Can't believe I've only just found you guys!!

"Poppy's long sleeved tees arrived this morning, thank you. They are absolutely wonderful and we are so pleased you added the larger size to your range! Poppy has been living in Mini Merino's for at least six winters and as she grows we hand them on to her younger cousins. They look forward to Poppy's outgrown Mini Merino's and always comment on how new they look."
Caroline (Auckland, New Zealand) May 2016
I congratulate you on the quality of your NZ made garments, often so hard to find quality as good as Mini Merino's these days. I'm a seamstress of 40 plus years experience.
Shirley (New Zealand) March 2016
I am a big lover and supporter of your lovely merino knits for kids. We moved to Boston USA from Australia two winters ago and basically lived in your merino layers.
I don't know how we would have survived otherwise!
Kate F - (USA) April 2015
Thankyou Julie.We love your products. The designs are perfect and cute. The softness of your merino is one of the key selling points for us. The colours are tasteful. The sizing is perfect. What more can i say??!
Judy (Northland) September 2014
Thanks so much we have received my daughters wonderful Mini Merino. As always 100% happy with the amazing quality. We have 4 in different sizes that both my daughters have worn and worn and now passed onto my niece and they are still going strong!!! Keep up the great work.
Nadene (Auckland) July 2014
Our six year old son has been loving his Mini Merino tops ever since he was for four years. We have so many pictures of him wearing MM and we're grateful that you provided
such a wonderful product for him to enjoy. We watched him go from Grasshopper Green being his very favorite color, to Cobalt Blue, and now he even likes Navy Blue.
Mike USA (June 2014)
Our daughter has been wearing the long-sleeve T in a variety of colours since she was 2 she is now wearing the biggest size. I'm not looking forward to her growing out of such an amazing product. Fingers crossed you develop a bigger range!. I tell everyone to buy mini merino. Thank you so much for such a fantastic product.
Kind regards Shelley M, May 2014
Thank you - your service is always great and I remember this from last time I ordered as well. Looking forward to getting the parcel. Thanks Leanna B (NZ) May 2014
What service! Paid on Friday, here today ready to be worn! I love the beanies and yet another gorgeous swing dress. Thank you for your prompt service. Beth, May 2014
Thank you, the girls clothing arrived yesterday and today they are proudly dancing around in their gorgeous navy swing dresses. I am about to place another order!
Thank you so much Heidi B (Auckland) May 2014
I was so delighted with the beautiful quality of the first order (made earlier in the week), hence my second order! The garments are every bit as soft and lovely as described and I just love the vibrant colours.
With thanks, Joan F (Christchurch) April 2014
Hi there! I just wanted to say thanks and let you know I am really pleased with the garments we ordered! I bought them mainly as a warm thin under layer for the German winter and for skiing, I wasn't sure if my children would wear them much, sometimes they complain about wool, but they are so soft and comfortable, the kids want to wear them all the time! they are now winter pyjamas too! they seem to wash up well too. Many thanks again,
Kelly B (Kiwi's living in Germany) March 2014
I just wanted to say what a relief you’re making good quality clothes for children that look good, feel good and more importantly keep them warm.I have trouble keeping jackets and cardigans on my daughter and your merino wool products are light, flexible and perfect for playing in.Thanks again. I’ll be a longstanding customer so please keep making more lovely clothing.
G.O (Australia) June 2013
I received my order today and just want to let you know that I am really happy with your merino products. My girls particularly love their swing dresses. My younger one put her one on to try and so far I have had no luck in taking her dress off her and it has been 3 hours and I am tired of chasing her around in the house. I guess it is likely she will go to sleep tonight with her new swing dress on ; ) Best regards,
Jane L, Australia (May 2013)
I bought the smaller pair of leggings for my 3 yo son to wear under jeans as jeans are great for taking the punishment he dishes out on our farm each day, but are very warm now it is actually getting a bit colder. Then again, he may insist on wearing the leggings and a top as PJs!! My two girls live in leggings after school and on weekends so they too get a fair workout and have stood up admirably so far…..hence the black and grey ones will still fit Georgie now and then hopefully Max next winter. Regards,
Pamela, Australia (May 2013)
Thank you very much – the gloves arrived today and so quickly!!They fit my tiny hands perfectly and are so nice and light but warm at the same time. Great to have my hands free to get food etc sorted for the kids while still keeping warm.Thanks again for the kind and fast service. Much appreciated.Cheers
Jody C, Napier (May 2013)
I just wanted to contact you to say how much I love the new merino stuff I bought for my kids. Your advice on the phone re colours (for the swing dress and long sleeved top) and sizing (for my tall, slight boy) was just spot-on. I really appreciate the fact that now Miss Independent can dress herself and is both warm and styley-looking! You have a fab product and your customer service was exemplary – I’m going to recommend you to friends too because you’re also the most reasonably priced merino I could find online as well. I wish you every success in your business; I know I will be purchasing year after year.
Kind regards Bridget M, Hamilton (May 2013)
Looking forward to getting my new batch of Mini-Merinos. One of my children has gained the nickname 'Mini Merino Molly' at school - shows how often she is wearing them!
Charlotte, Wellington (May 2013)
I have just been raving about the high quality of Mini Merino to a friend as we watched our children run around together this afternoon, with my daughter in her red swing dress that she has worn over again for the past year and a half. In talking about dressing our children for outdoor play on cool days I was confidentally recommending the quality of your products as they seem to wash and wear so well. My children attend a school that has no uniform, yet prefer children wear a certain colour on different days of the week, (Tuesday is red day). The clothing is to be plain, without bold graphics or labels and so several of your long sleeve tees feature in our wardrobe and are great year round for layering! Many thanks,
Melissa H.,Australia (April 2013)
The parcel has arrived with the boys ink navy singlets and beanie. I have to say they are so lovely and soft, the size looks really good and I’m absolutely rapt with them! Colour’s good too. Just out of interest, I have several grandsons and had also ordered one from another source, and yours is by far the more superior, no question about that I’m sure they’ll wash well too but that’s down the track. Big tks and ciao, good luck! I’ll be back!
Rona B, Wellington (December 2012)
Our parcel arrived today! Amazing! The girls love their new merinos - the navy is lovely! My daughter got the same colour and style top and tunic for her 5th birthday - she will be 7 in 2 weeks so thought she was ready for new ones! She wears them constantly and I am very impressed with how they wash and wear. Lucy will get some wear out of the hand-me-downs and loves her new navy top too so all are happy.
Thanks again, C Muir of Waimate (July 2012)
THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH - received the gorgeous merino pack today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So rapt. Just beautiful - so fabulously soft and rich in colour! Yum. And awesome speed!! Will definitely be back for more!!!!!!
Carly. Rangiora (May 2012)
I love merino on my wee girl especially here in Queenstown. I have tested most brands on the NZ market and I like yours the best for durability and of course fit! My daughter is slim and yours is by far the best fabric, thickness and slim fit and length. Originally I was given a hand me down but this year I decided Mini Merino was well worth buying! Thanks heaps and keep up the good work. I look forward to receiving the parcel and keeping my daughter warm.
Linda, Queenstown (April 2012)
This is the 3rd year I have purchased mini merino - they have been the best wearing merino we have had - I even scrubbed permanent marker out of one with sard wonder soap and it still looked like new. Our old ones are still going strong as hand me downs and in great condition . I like the long fit and find them great for layering under other tops in winter . Very happy with your products.
Lisa, Arrowtown (April 2012)
The parcel arrived today! My daughter loves the items….actually she has the pink top and red dress on now! Love the Jersey too! Thanks very much.Fabulous service and items. I will let my friends know about your produces.
Kay,M. Gisborne (March 2012)
I just wanted to let you know there is no doubt about it, your merino tops are the best quality that I have come across and an essential to every child's wardrobe !
Michelle.W, Christchurch (Feb 2012)
Thanks for the order. My son has not taken off his singlet since it arrived! Thanks so much, we love shopping with you and use your clothing every day. We have spread the word and our coffee group children wear Mini Merino too!
Vicky. Blenheim (Oct 2011)
"I love the Mini Merino garments that I bought. The colours are beautiful, the material is great quality - soft and 100% merino wool. They keep my kids warm and look so cute on my 2 sons - I am a fan! They are very affordable with the NZD conversion and they arrived in no time from NZ. I'll be buying them each year."
Vanessa W, Australia (Sept 2011)
I just wanted to say a big thank you, Merino's are gorgeous kids love them and they are weathering the washing well so far as they've already been thru a delicate wash in the machine many of times already! Cheers Gael M, Hamilton (May 2011)
I'm really impressed with the quality of the fabric and construction, having purchased from a couple of the outdoor gear shops in the past (not again!). Thanks again, regards
Merrin, Australia (May 2011)
"Thanks so much for providing so many lovely bright colours in your fabulous merino childrenswear range, my son enjoyed choosing for himself, and loves his merino tops. Other merino childrenswear brands just don't provide such nice fresh colours for boys!"
Huia M, Auckland (May 2011)
It appears that we are hooked - K won't wear anything but his new merino tops now... and hubby wanted to know why I didn't get any for our daughter!! Never mind that he was just complaining about the size of her wardrobe a couple of weeks ago..."
Elaine K, Australia (April 2011)
Your gorgeous zip jerseys arrived in last nights mail - Thank you.They are off to Victoria, Aus, today and will be very much loved by two little boys. They wore last years ones to a thread! My daughter in law, Kate (orders the mini merinos regularly) just loves them - So easy to care for and they look so smart. Kindest regards,
Sue, S (April 2011)
Thanks for my latest order of all the Merino long-sleeved tee's, beanies and Zip Front Jersey's - they are fantastic as usual and the boys love them, in fact it is almost impossible to get them to take them off!
They are such great quality, last so well, awesome range of colours, and I love the longer fit of the long sleeved tee's on both boys in the colder winter weather, it's just perfect for keeping their backs covered and warm at all times.
Thanks so much for your friendly and fast service too, I was impressed at how fast my order arrived and I appreciated your phoning to double-check sizes and quantities.I will definitely continue to order more in the future.......
Rachel, H Auckland (April 2012)
Our love affair with merino continues! Thank you for the super fast delivery (5 days from across the Tasman! Wow!) Fabulous service and such an awesome quality product. Well worth every cent! Definitely will be back to buy more... x
Elaine. Australia (April 2012)
We love the quality of your gear, thats why I buy them - me and my husband are both students, so we buy expensive/quality which turns out so much better in the long run ;) A friend of mine is Czech and he always quotes his grandmother - that she was too poor to buy cheap things...
Rachel. Australia (April 2011)
Looking forward to stock up on my Mini Merino stocks while I am in the country. My Tessa is about to turn 5 and still loves all her Mini Merino gear….and luckily it seems to stand up to her punishing lifestyle enough to be enjoyed by Georgie (3 ½) and now Max (18 months) even though Max is having to endure some more 'feminine' colours!!Pamela, Australia (March 2011)
Just to let you know the tops arrived yesterday, so perfect timing. Thanks again for getting them to me so quickly. We buy the tops ever winter for my son (who is now 4) and they are brilliant. Thanks again.
Andrea B, Wellington (March 2011)
My son hasn't taken off his Mini Merino long-sleeve tee since the courier dropped it off this morning, even though it's hot now! So it must be comfy but it looks great too. Already had a few comments this morning about how stylish he looks!! Many thanks, and looking forward to the dress arriving.
Victoria. C, Auckland (March 2011)
Thanks so much. What an amazing service. And the product is perfect. Ted has been wearing the tops every day to preschool since and with the changeable weather has not got a chill. Perfect!
Rach H, Wellington (Feb 2011)
Thank you so much for the wee merino top I ordered, it's just what I was after. I have to say most impressed with the arrival time on it. Thank you. Will definitely be doing a winter order soon!
Aimee M, Temuka (Feb 2011)
Thank you for such prompt delivery - the merino tops and beanie arrived just in time for the Northern winter and now my little one is lovely and snug in gorgeous NZ merino.Thanks again.
Cynthia Ireland (Nov 2010)
Thank you very much for our order which was received this morning. All the tops are fantastic. So soft and beautifully made. Fantastic service, gorgeous product and super speedy delivery. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Regards, Philippa J, Timaru (October 2010)
I won a long sleeve merino top a few months back via the Little Treasures Magazine. My little boy now fits it and is getting heaps of wear out of it. I love it - it looks great and the quality is awesome. Thanks so much.
Nikki.S (August 2010)
My kids have enjoyed their mini merinos...my daughter was wearing her swing dress last week. She loves it. The colour and the swishyness. I have given them quite alot of punishment i.e washing them contrary to instructions & they have survived well (I always put them in a wash bag though). They are nice and soft & a good alternative to cotton. I notice that you can just hang them up on a drying frame and as long as you shake them before hanging, they don't need ironing!...great.
Kristen, E (UK) July 2010
Goods recieved - Thanks. The tops look really nice on, and I was soo pleased to see that they dont have a big scratchy tag at the back of the neck! We will definitly be buying more. Thanks again,
Michaela (Auckland) June 2010
Hi just a note to say we loved the swing dress, it looks great quality and will def buy from you in future.
Thanks Nadine T (Gore) June 2010
I have been meaning to write this email for so long and have finally got here! We absolutely love your products. I have 3 girls and they live in the long sleeve singlets (we own 7 of them!).. They are gorgeous colours, hard wearing, realistic sizes and handle being handed down through 3 children. We have just brought a Zip Front Jersey as well, love the style and cut of it. Have you considered making clothes for Mums as well - I think it would be a fabulous idea!!
Thanks again for the great product and service.
Fiona W, (Timaru) May 2010
Parcel has arrived and my girls are looking very colourful and glamorous in their green, blue and red outfits this morning ! Lovely streamlined fit and such beautiful soft merino. Thanks very much,
Kind Regards Elizebeth C, Wellington (April 2010)
The parcel arrived and my daughter loves her new top and swing dress - thanks for the prompt service.
Cheers, Emma R, Wellington (April 2010)
I'm just writing to say thank you so much for my daughters new merino long sleeve tee, that we won last week (little Treasures competition). It is amazing quality, and the warmth of having it on one of our winter days down here is priceless! The other thing that has been great for me is the length of the top - for a mum that is attached to the 'growsuit under the clothes' habit, it's a big ask to move on to the long sleeve tee. But this one is perfect to move me to that next level - it covers the little poppets tummies that get so cold!!!
Rach.I, Christchurch (April 2010)
The zip front jerseys have arrived in Australia and are a big hit with both the wearers and their mother. Another fabulous product is the word and here I am ordering another one each for them. They have their mini merinos as well which they virtually live in for nearly 9 months of the year. My daughter in law cannot speak too highly of your products. Thank you again - your service is so prompt too. Til next time
Sue,S (April 2010)
Just a quick thank you for the very prompt delivery of my recent Mini Merino order. Once more, I am thrilled with your products, especially the new mid-weight jumper and beanies. We have suddenly started getting nights of down to 5 degrees so pretty cool in the early mornings so all have been worn already!! Thank you again and I will no doubt be in touch again soon. My little boy (6 months) is now wearing the short-sleeved tees I got from you 4 years ago for my daughter....they are still as good as new despite this being the third child wearing them.
Pamela L, Australia (April 2010)
I LOVE the long sleeved tee's and beanies I ordered - perfect fit, superb quality - just fantastic. Tried it on my 2.5 yr old this morning and she's refusing to take it off despite it warming up during the day.... about to put in another order. Thanks v much
Jo B. Auckland (March 2010)
Both my kids have sensitive skin and live in Merino over winter. Your merino comes in such lively colours and is great quality at family friendly prices. Thank you. I look forward to being able to tell people where I got the zip front jersey from. Many thanks,
Chrstine.M, Wellington (March 2010)
No doubt you get numerous requests for merinos for adults but I wanted to add my plea to the list. I just can't find adults' merino tops that are as nice as your kids' ones in terms of quality (of the fabric and sewing) and colour range. My kids look great in grasshopper green and I'm sure it would suit me too! I don't want to wear black and grey all winter.Kind regards Eve.B, Wellington (March 2010)
I wanted to say a personal thanks, what a beautiful product you're making!! I'm so pleased with the quality of it, thanks very much. Your company is making a product of the quality and standard I'd expect from well established (and very expensive) brands like Ice Breaker. I buy the kids a merino top each winter, and will definately be back to shop with you again. Meanwhile all the very best developing your business, I'm very impressed.
Regards, Krista G, Auckland (March 2010)
