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 hand washing 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. Hand wash only. Made in Germany. ADD A SINGLE USE EUCALAN WOOL WASH FOR PREPPING YOUR NEW COVER!
This picture is help show the some colors more accurately. The rose is a dusty rose color. The grey is really grey and not a brownish-grey. The blue is an abalone blue more like the GroVia Abalone blue. It is not royal blue.

Disanas were the first wool cover that I tried, and they made it possible for me to completely eliminate using night time disposables on my heavy wetting firstborn! I quickly started replacing my TPU covers with woolies, and for my second born stocked up only on exclusively wool. Both of my children wear Disanas at night, and I have never had a leak! I am delighted to be an exclusively wool/ cloth diapering Mama, and am so grateful for Disanas!
I love these wool diaper covers. We use them at night and I feel so much better knowing my babies are in diapers that breathe rather than plastic for hours. I’ve only ever had problems with leaks when I needed to move up to the next size and hadn’t had a chance to prep the next size up....so I was still using the smaller ones. My daughter moves a lot in her sleep, and this causes a lot of natural felting. She shrinks the pants down fairly early due to this (it can’t be stretched again with felting), which is the only drawback for us. She is 14 months and we had to get the 2T because the 12-24 month became too small. Her twin brother is still using his 12-24 month ones just fine though. We’ve had every size from newborn to 2T, and I only wish we could have afforded to have 2 of each size for each twin rather than 1. It is a little inconvenient with hand washing and drying, but it’s worth it. I’ve found that when prepping a new one for my daughter to use, it usually takes 2 treatments in lanolin to get them waterproof (she’s a soaker!)
This was the first disana product I tried and I love it. I got the newborn size to fit my little nugget while he is tiny and the next size up. The picture is him at 10 lbs 10 oz 2 months old. It fits him about perfect at this point. The only drawback is that it is s pull on and when lanolized is a bit sticky so it can be hard to get on a tiny baby, especially when they want to keep their little legs up. But I love how breathable it is. We pair it with the workhorse fitted and flats mostly. Overall, we love it.
Thank you, Macy, for the beautiful photo of your 2 month old in size 50/56 ! Happy comfy baby! New wool covers really don't need to be lanolized because they still have the natural lanolin in the wool. What new Disana Wool Pull On covers need is hand felting in the wet zone. This is mainly what prevents leaks through the knit. You can see short but very helpful videos on our website here https://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/pages/lanolize to show how to hand felt in the wet zone. There is also a video showing how to lanolize; hopefully the tips shown will help prevent glopping of the lanolin which can make lanolized covers feel sticky. If the lanolin is well emulsified in the water (use some Eucalan to break up the lanolin) it will more evenly coat all of the fibers and not be too heavy on the surface of the wool, causing a sticky feel. If we can be of any further help with any issues related to washing or felting please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you again for your review and for the beautiful photo!
