Disana 100% organic boiled wool mittens are beautiful, warm, soft and flexible. We have found they are surprisingly warmer than some other expensive thick polyester mitts available for toddlers. The high lanolin content makes them naturally water resistant.

Special characteristics

- warm quality
- long, knitted rib-cuffs
- gloves are fixed together by cord
- size 1 is without thumbs, sizes 2 and 3 with thumbs

Materials

100% Organic Boiled Merino Wool

Brand Info

DISANA

We believe in pure, unspoiled nature right from the moment we select our raw materials. Only organic cotton and organic pure new Merino wool which has been independently inspected and certified is used for our disana articles.

We are not only concerned about avoiding contaminants in the fibers of our thread: people’s living conditions and environmental protection in the countries where they are cultivated are also important criteria we bear equal responsibility for, just like all the other links in the production chain.

We are a founding member of the International Association of Natural Textiles (IVN) and are committed to adhering to its guidelines for natural textile production; these are recognized as the most comprehensive, strictest guidelines in the world.

Size Guide

Sizing notes: Disana's boiled wool mittens run on the large side making it likely to get more than 1 year out of these (depending on your child).

We have found the thumbless mitts to still fit a 16 month old, baby girl - they are more snug, but we think they keep her hands warmer than sizing up to a 2. She has slightly larger than normal hands and long fingers.

If you baby is close to a year and has very large hands sizing up may be the choice for you.

A three year old boy who has medium to larger hands fits the size 2 perfectly. He can also wear the size 3 but they are roomy.

We love these precious mittens.

Care Instructions

WOOL CARE

The beauty of woolen items is they don’t need to be washed as often as other fibers.
Wool fibers resist dirt and odors because they are naturally anti-microbial (specifically the lanolin found in wool is both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal).

Airing out Disana wool items is often all you need to do to freshen them up.

If food gets on the knit or boiled wool lightly brush off of the area to remove food particles. This may be all that is needed for the article to be ready for wear again.

ACTIVE CLEANING

When an item is truly ready for a bath, we recommend washing with a wool specific shampoo that has lanolin in it. We recommend using: Disana Shampoo, and Disana’s Lanolin conditioner.

STAINS

For stains, spot cleaning with Disana’s Ox-gall soap works magic.

WASH

Disana wool is untreated with chemicals so they are not shrink resistant.
Hand washing is a simple way to keep your items looking new.

Add your items to cool water (hot and very cold water will shock the wool fibers and shrink them).

Add your chosen wool wash, wash your items without rubbing the fibers too vigorously (this will cause felting), or leaving them to soak more than 10 minutes. I like to swirl them around and dunk multiple times.

If you are washing only a few items, a bathroom sink is a perfect place to start. For more items a laundry sink or the tub are great options.

CONDITIONING OR LANOLIZING

If you are conditioning or lanolizing your wool, boil water and pour it into a mug or other container that is heat safe, add a pea size amount of lanolin conditioner (per item you are planning to wash) to the hot water and let it dissolve. Let this hot water cool for a couple minutes then add it to your cool water mix — swirl it around and add your woolies. Swirl your items in the lanolin water and remove after a couple minutes.

REMOVE EXCESS WATER - AIR DRY

The safest way to remove excess water is to gently squeeze the articles out and then put them between two towels and step on them. Another option, that may cause mild shrinking (so make this choice at your own risk), is to put the items in the washer, and do a fast spin cycle to remove the water. Make sure to just do the spin cycle and not a rinse and spin. This cycle should be short. Lay the items flat to dry or on a drying rack. Avoid drying them near heat sources (for example near the fireplace) as this can shrink them.

We do not recommend wool wash settings as they are all different, and not all may be suitable for proper care.

FEELING GOOD

Washing wool can be intimidating at first, but it becomes easier and, dare I say meditative. It feels good to be washing beautiful, sustainable clothes that we can feel good about.
