Why wool? Wool is breathable. This cover is a favorite at nighttime because once prepared it virtually never leaks. The wool is totally untreated and is naturally antibacterial thus doesn't retain odors. Is wool itchy? Commercial wool can be, but this wool is untreated and wonderfully soft. Don't be afraid to try wool! This style has been loved for generations because it is so effective. The 2 layer double knit stretches for a gentle and comfortable fit over a very wide size range. A must for the family bed! Nighttime heavy wetter? This is the answer. It's cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Yes, really! That's because it's so breathable. Wool does need to be hand washed, and occasional lanolization is helpful. But washing is needed only very infrequently, sometimes only once a month. Wool airs out to fresh easily. View our video of how to wash wool here. Don't forget your wool care products. This wool is produced according to the organic standards. Lovely Merino wool. It was called Demeter Certified Organic, which is the highest of pure standards. Those standards are still maintained for beautiful Disana wools. Disana is a wonderful family business located in Germany, dedicated for 2 generations to organic wools and cottons, long before "organic" became a "thing". These are positively beautiful covers. It is knitted wool. We like the nice long legs this has. No leg gaps with this one! Once fully broken in, the performance is great. Once prepared, I have never, ever had a leak from one! I think this is the only cover I can can say that about, under even my kiddo's hard and deliberate testing - pushing diapers and covers to their limits. It might be too small in the legs on extremely chubby legs. It is designed to shrink some, and should be prepared by handwashing and felting somewhat (shrunk a bit) before first use. Never machine wash this cover. Do not put it in the dryer. Gently hand wash only. Be sure to add the free How-To Booklet to your cart which has instructions on how to prepare them for use. It is normal and expected for the very fine merino wool to pill with use because it is very soft wool. It's OK to size up if you are in the upper end of the weight ranges that we suggest as they do shrink. Handwash only. Made in Germany.

The disana wool diaper cover is absolutely amazing. I prepped them per GMD’s instructions for wool & I used a bit of Eucalan and slightly prefelted the wet zone. I use a mix of flats & prefolds underneath. Baby has been wearing them for almost a month, they are starting to “naturally” felt more, but they still smell just as fresh as the first day he wore them. I haven’t even used a pul cover since getting the wool cover. I wish I’d tried wool covers first, so much nicer & easier in my opinion than the pul covers.
Arrived within a few days choosing the default setting for a small purchase. I got the disana wool cover natural color. Works great. I have only washed it once yet and it is absorbent enough for my baby 12 hours at night. He is 18 pounds and still nursing a few times during the night. Wool is amazing; works like magic. The pee smell dries out and is not hot to wear . We live in Panamá'; nights are in the 77-80's. I recommend this product.
We love these more than any other cover hands down. After cloth diapering three babies we still use these daily. And yes, they last that long. We have four in rotation (for one baby at a time) but could easily get by with only two. I wash maybe once a month, air them out and they're perfect. I will say though, that I use these exclusively with workhorse diapers. I cant get flats and prefolds pinned to stop poop leaks. We get by with just airing them because we use workhorse.
I feel a bit intimidated by wool covers, but all information and videos were very helpful! I am very excited for my cover to be worn in a bit more. I was nervous to felt it and it gets a bit damp with even light urine. I’m hoping to use this as a night cover as it gets more waterproof. I do think it seems much more comfortable on my baby’s skin and chubby thighs.
I love using this for my little one for nighttime-never leaks!! His disposable diapers would leak at night since he’s a heavy wetter and we have no problem with this wool cover!
