Soft and lovely boiled organic fine merino wool outside. Soft organic cotton inside. Warmth and comfort. The warmth of boiled wool is not at all like sweaty polyester. Wool breathes and regulates body temperature. I am convinced that my babies sleep better in wool and natural fibers, perhaps because they are neither too hot nor too cold in it. This really does have that Goldilocks effect of "just right". There is something amazing and superior about merino wool. The organic cotton lining inside is soft, too. This is not intended as a diaper cover. It is clothing.
The front zipper opens up all the way for easy access to baby. This new stock version has a new added detail which is cotton at the top covering the zipper. Please note that the pictures, except for the grey picture, don't show this zipper cover near the chin but ALL of our stock does have this nice added feature. The top of the zipper is very well covered by organic cotton, which makes good sense. Handwash only. Made in Germany.
All of our stock has the new cotton zipper cover near the baby's chin, but the stock pictures below don't show it. The pictures don't do this justice. It is much nicer than it looks in the pictures. This grey one is the smaller size.
Warm boiled wool on the outside, extra-fine organic cotton on the inside. Our boiled wool Disana sleeping bag combines the best of both natural fibers. The outside, made of soft new boiled Merino wool, provides plenty of warmth without overheating. Wool is very good at balancing out the temperature; you are never too warm or too cold wearing it. An extra fine organic cotton lining on the inside allows the child to sleep in peace. Thanks to the long zip the front of the sleeping bag can be opened wide. This makes it easier to place your child inside when she is asleep. A priceless advantage for little ones after a long day of adventures, play and discovery.

I LOVE this sleep sack for my baby. It is soft and a little bit nubbly, but not scratchy AT ALL. The fit is nice and slim. My baby will literally crawl to it and snuggle her face in it when she's tired. I used wool sleep sacks with my first child, but those do not even come close to this in quality. I started off using fleece sleep sacks for baby #2, because that's what I happened to find in the hand-me down bin, but it made her sweaty but then clammy and cold. My only advice is to get two, because it does take a day or two to dry (I do live in Seattle though).
Of all the baby products I own, this one is on my top 5 essentials. It is the perfect baby blanket sleeper. I have used it for sleep in warm and cold climates and it regulates baby’s temperature at night. Baby is neither cold nor hot. It’s expensive for our budget but we knew we needed a healthy and safe sleep blanket. I use this every single night so it is worth the expense over time. I am waiting patiently for the sizes to restock so that I can purchase the next size up. If you’re on the fence, save up some money and purchase this sleeper in size two and you’ll have it for the perfect age when baby needs a safe sleeping blanket with arms free. I may request another one as a gift of sorts so I can have two in rotation at some point but for now I wash it rarely and because of the lanolized wool it stays pretty clean and fresh. Sometimes I just spot clean the Jersey cotton on the inside between washes. (It sounds gross if your unfamiliar with wool but really you can get a lot of wear out of wool before doing a full wash - same with the awesome disana wool covers! Wool is an incredible fabric and I only diaper with cotton and wool!
I don't fancy myself as someone who spends this much on baby items, but after plenty of experience with sweaty yet chilly fleece sleep sacks I decided to give this a try. We live in upstate NY, and this has been absolutely perfect for our January nights, plus it has a nice heft to it that my baby seems to like. My son just turned one and is about the 25th percentile- he has plenty of room to grow in the size 2 . The cover on the zipper pulls works great on ours, and I'm not concerned about the cotton lining because my wool soakers never leak. If I ever have another babe I'll definitely be investing in size 1 and tossing all those pilly fleece sacks so they can sleep in one of these right after graduating from the swaddle!
I bought this for my newborn grandson because the nights have been getting much too cool for him. The boiled wool sleep sack is perfect! It helps keep him warm and cuddly and my daughter said he is sleeping so much better. She puts him in a cotton romper with the disana wool romper over it and then into the sleep sack. I think I am jealous!
The service was prompt and easy, and my baby went from being too cold at night from drafty windows, to being so warm we were able to turn off the space heater. Even so, Baby seemed too warm at times. Then I noticed some dermatitis on her hands and face. Baby is 8 months old, and has had occasional contact with wool and no problems, but this blanket was maybe too much. Great quality, it seems sturdy, good zipper, safe fit,
