Disana's organic diaper cover is made up of lightweight double-knit wool. It is super soft, breathable, and naturally antimicrobial. The fibre inside naturally wicks moisture and is rarely transferred onto clothing unless extremely saturated.

When lanolized these diaper covers become soft breathable magic for your babies diapered bum. In between uses Disana's covers just need to be aired out, and rotated between lanolin baths. 

We love these covers. They are adorable and easy to put on. If you use a thick cotton diaper, we have found lanolizing once a month is sufficient to ward off any odors. Of course they will need to be washed with any significant soiling. We recommend 3 or more diaper covers, for rotation, for each child (extras just mean less woolly bath laundry days). 

We also love these as fashionable shorts in summer! (In winter we enjoy using the Disana leggings as covers). The covers makes for simple diaper changes and are a great functional, fashionable, eco-conscious, minimalist baby clothes choice. What's not to love.

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

We have found the age sizing to be a good gauge, especially if you go with what size your child is wearing. However, if your baby is a bit bigger on the size chart and has chunkier legs - going up a size might be right for you.

Care Instructions

WOOL CARE

The beauty of wool diaper covers is that they resist dirt and odors because they are naturally anti-microbial (specifically the lanolin found in wool is both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal).

HOW TO USE WOOL COVERS

When a merino wool diaper cover gets wet simply rotate it for a new dry one, and air out the wet one.

A minimum of 3 works great for this.

URINE WASH
Diaper covers need frequent lanolizing to maintain their freshness. This could be from once a week to once a month. The lanolin in the cover will decrease from becoming wet, as it naturally cleans the diaper cover. Adding lanolin to keep a sufficient amount in the cover is a part of keeping the diaper fresh. The thicker the cotton diaper underneath the less wet the cover will get. The amount of relanolizing will depend on how wet the cover is getting from your baby. If often saturated wash once a week, if it remains pretty dry most of the time, once month will likely work.

BABY POO
If soiled, wash your cover completely with Disana's Wool Wash and then condition them with Disana's Lanolin or another baby safe wool wash and lanolin.

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.

Add the diaper cover 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.
Sometime doing a mild purposeful agitation to felt the diaper cover in the wet zone is helpful. Especially as new covers have a stretchy weave that can allow for some wetness to get through.

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

To lanolize your wool covers, 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 covers 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 covers flat to dry or on a drying rack. Avoid drying them near heat sources (for example near the fireplace) as this can shrink them.

Drying usually takes overnight.

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


Washing wool can be intimidating at first, but it becomes easier and, dare I say meditative. It feels good to be washing beautiful, sustainable diaper covers.
