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 some of 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.

This is a lovely and well-made bag. I did not read closely enough and was expecting it to be wool throughout rather than lined with cotton. The result is a very nice sleeping bag but not a great extra layer of diaper protection since the cotton wicks urine into it. Because the cotton and wool are against each other, it takes forever to dry. So if you are a cloth diaper user you’ll want to make sure you’ve got your nighttime solution figured out so you’re not having to clean this regularly (the wool won’t smell like pee, but the cotton will). I think the cotton does probably make the sleeping bag more durable, and more comfortable. Just wasn’t precisely what I had in mind (my fault).
This sleep sac is perfect for our chilly bedroom. Our bedroom can get down to 45 at night and our son stays warm with a couple nighties and this sleep sac as the final layer. The construction is fantastic and I know it will last till we have another babe.
I was hesitant to buy this sleep sack due to its price point and it being made of wool when we live in Texas, which is hot most of the year. At night we tend to turn the AC down pretty cold and this sleep sack has been absolute perfection. Whenever she wakes up in the morning her body temperature feels just right, not cold and not hot. My only regret is that I didn’t buy this sleep sack sooner. We were using a cotton one before and she would wake up cold/hot often. I love it so much that I’m debating on buying a second one to have on hand in case she has an accident, since you have to hand wash and air dry it. After she outgrows the sleep sack days I hope to hold on to it in her baby memorabilia box and pass it down as a family heirloom. (For reference, my daughter is in the size 2 and around 3.5 months old in these pics. The arm holes are a bit large and the sleep sack is a little long on her but it hasn’t been a problem at all. I thought about the size 1 but I knew she would outgrow it too fast.)
Babe sleeps like a dream. Never too hot or too cold.
I'm very pleased with this sleep sack: it is well made and the color is beautiful. I still have to layer baby's clothes with it but it keeps her much warmer than she was before. Love it!
