Whippersnapper – 100% NZ Made Kids Merino Wool Clothing
Nature, passion, durability, versitility, comfort and performance merge as one in Whippersnapper merino wool clothing.
Merino wool is a 100% natural fibre grown in a natural alpine environment in the South island of New Zealand. The high country farms where our wool come from are owned and managed by energetic, ambitious and entrepreneurial farmers who take a long term perspective to their land and its use. Generations of farming families dedicated to producing the best merino wool fibre in the world. Modern manufacturing techniques then turn this centuries old fibre into stunning merino wool fabrics that we use to make our clothing.
At Whippersnapper, we design merino wool clothing that allows kids to continue their adventures and stay in touch with nature, no matter what the conditions. Our kids merino wear garments are designed to be worn all year round, outdoors and indoors, whether that is for activities such as skiing, hiking or sailing or for casual wear at school or at home. They are also perfect for travel, being light in weight and very easy care.
Designed and made in New Zealand, the Whippersnapper range of kids and baby merino wool clothing is exactly what your kids need to stay warm, comfortable, safe and healthy. Our entire range of merino wool clothing for kids is not only super soft, lightweight, insulating and breathable, but also incredibly stylish. You’ll find everything from merino kids hoodies and merino long sleeve tops to merino kids vests, to merino kids track pants and merino kids beanies.
Once you discover the wonders of beautiful Whippersnapper merino wool clothing you’ll never buy synthetic clothing for your kids again! The amazing combination of benefits of our merino wool clothing makes it nature’s ultimate fabric for adventurous babies and children.
We are wild about 100% pure New Zealand merino wool and we invite you to discover it for yourself and to literally wrap your child in nature!

Supporting Kids in the Snow!
In 2012 we were delighted to be one of the main sponsors of the Cardrona Calci Yum Kids' series. Two action packed and fun filled days for the kids, based up at the Cardrona ski field near Wanaka, New Zealand. Check out the video of one of these days below. We love the energy and sparkle in the eyes of these girls and boys and it was great to be a part of these events. A perfect workout too for our 100% pure New Zealand merino wool garments!
