Disana wool diaper covers offer the ultimate solution for nighttime leaks, even for heavy wetters. No more wet sleep sacks or bed sheets. Just pull your Disana Wool Cover over a fitted diaper or prefold and your baby will wake up dry and happy in the morning. Wool diaper covers are highly absorbent, dirt repellent, extremely breathable and ultra comfortable. Made from 100% organic merino wool, these wool covers are available in 5 different sizes for a custom fit. This pull-up wool cover is made with a light-weight double knit. Wool naturally contains lanolin, which binds the moisture with the fiber and repells dirt. If your wool diaper cover is only a little damp you can air it out between uses and reuse it. Wool covers are highly breathable and despite parents concerns, keep baby's skin much cooler than do PUL covers. Whether during daytime or nighttime, summer or winter, the Disana wool diaper cover is an excellent choice for an all natural, organic, and worry-free diaper cover. Disana wool diaper covers are one of Germany's most popular diaper covers, now available in Canada, including the new spring colours.
If used as an over-night diaper, do not put a pyjama over the wool cover as cotton may draw moisture out of the wool cover. A shirt and the wool covers inside a sleeping sack is enough to keep your baby warm and dry.
We recommend using newborn fitted diapers or newborn prefolds under our Disana wool covers in the size XS. Both, our Storchenkinder Fitted Diaper in size 1 or AMP fitted diapers in size 1, are great fitted diapers that fit newborns and beyond well. All other cover sizes fit well over any one-size or sized fitted diaper.
For best results we recommend that you lanolize your wool covers twice before you use them.
Once a week, or when your wool diaper cover starts to smell, you should wash it with a gentle wool detergent, such as our Disana Wool Shampoo. Woolen products should be hand washed at a maximum temperature of 30 ºC. Simply fill your sink with lukewarm water and add some wool wash to it. Place your wool cover into the water. You can then check if your cover needs to be lanolized again: if the cover swims on top of the water without soaking it up then it still has enough lanolin in it. If it soaks up water you should lanolize it after your wash. Back to your washing routine: swirl your wool diaper cover in the water and let it soak for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, gently wash it again; turning it inside out helps wash into the fibres. Avoid rubbing or wringing of the fibre to prevent felting. Once washed, rinse the cover, gently squeeze out excess water with your hands or with a towel, and dry flat. Do not tumble dry or dry clean your wool diaper cover.
With every wash you neutralize the lanolin content in the fibre. To replenish the lanolin in your wool diaper cover simply disolve 2 tbsp of our liquid Disana Lanolin Conditioner in warm water. Add some cold water to bring temperature down to lukewarm. Now you can add your wool cover: swirl it around and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. To finish, swirl it around again, then drain the water and squeeze excess water out of the cover, first with your hand and then with a towel. Dry flat. Your cover will dry in about 24 hours after lanolizing. Done!

The attention to quality in the fiber choice is obvious with these covers. They do exactly what they say, and they look durable enough to last until potty training. I cannot say the same for some of the PUL covers.
As its winter, warmth is also important. I love these on her.

I've use these covers for my daughter day and night since she was born. They are absolutely fabulous!
Before I purchased them, I found that the real cloth diaper enthusiasts who've tried all types said they prefer the wool cover to anything else. So after much research I bought them. Now I rave about them all the time!
For me, they are the best choice for a few huge reasons:
- Wool are the only diaper covers that are all natural.
- They are super soft, especially after a couple washes and uses
- They breath unlike any other cover
- The high waist band and wider leg holes keep any poop contained that may have escaped the diaper underneath (this point is really great!)
- I've only had to wash them every other week or so, unless they have poop on them (just air-dry when wet from pee)
- They're stretchy and never dig in, no need to adjust snaps or velcrow
- I love the fact that I can use them as her bottoms. Pants will fit over top, but I rarely use them. If it's chilly I throw on some leg warmers. :)
I've tried other types of non-wool covers, that friends passed on to me and now I understood why so many people become frustrated with cloth diapering. If only they just used these wool covers.
I can't say enough about how much I love them! :)

I LOVE these diaper covers. My other cloth diapers were leaking at night so I did some research and heard that wool is SUPER absorbent, so I shopped around and found these and I was not dissapointed. These covers keep all the moisture in, are nice and soft on baby's skin and are TOP quality at an affordable price. You will not be dissapointed!

i'm having a disana love affair! between this wool cover and the tie nappies - i'm in love.
seriously, this is a fantastic wool cover. i don't have THAT much to compare it to, but i am quite obsessed with finding good products, and after this cover i literally have no desire to try anything else...
i have tried upcycled and hand-knit wool covers from etsy sellers and also an engel wool cover (which seems to be basically the same as the disana, i just happened to get the engel one on sale just after buying the disana. engel is more expensive normally). the upcycled wool irritated my baby's very sensitive skin. i love the disana because it is not at all scratchy, is super cozy-feeling (for me while holding baby and i imagine for baby to wear!), is affordable, comes in nice colours, stretches easily over a crazy padded night diaper, is really cute, and - most importantly - it most works!
we lanolized twice upon first receiving it as recommended and it has literally never leaked in the 2 months since we've been using it on our now 7 month old. just as long as you have the appropriate absorbancy under your wool, i'm sure that leaking shouldn't be an issue. we've been using it alone and under pajamas. i don't find the wicking under cotton pj's to be problematic. sure the pj's are just barely kinda a little somewhat a teeny tiny bit damp at the end of a looooonnnggg 12 hours, but really just barely. and only in the front (he's a belly sleeper) and only sometimes and really, i'm talking i have to really feel for it to feel the teeny bit of humidity thinking about starting up on the pj's! i was freaking out thinking i'd have to go out and buy all expensive wool pj's and longies and what have you, but not so much luckily! yup, we use it for up to 12 hours at a time at night - with either a angel-folded and snappi'd baby-size bummis prefold + a trifolded infant-size bummis prefold + a hemp or bamboo doubler (my husband's preferred combo) OR with a disana tie nappy + a trifolded mid-size bummis prefold + a engel organic cotton liner + a hemp or bamboo doubler (my preference). that all sounds extreme, but it's really fine and easy and i find his big night diaper roundness super cute frankly!
easy to clean, easy to lanolize, easy to dry, easy to get on and off, easy on the eyes, easy on the skin, easy on the wallet (relatively speaking. i mean, really, if you only use it for night diapering, you can get away with just the one - though a rotation of two is what we do and is probably a better idea). and FINALLY -and this is what made me research wool to begin with- sooooo easy on the nose compared to PUL covers (no crazy barnyard ammonia stinkfest in the morning, hurray!)
yup. i'm a convert. next up, trying this cover in the daytime!

The covers are nice and soft. We haven't had any leaks! I use the Bic Biquette fitted diapers underneath. I ordered a size medium based on the weight recommendations. The wool cover is huge! It Still looks very cute, does a good job, and he will grow into it soon! (which also saved mom some $). Overall, Really happy with my purchase and will buy the sleep sack too!

I got this diaper cover to give a try for wool cover and am very nicely surprised. Before the use I washed it once and lanolized with the Disana Lanolin Conditioner twice as per instructions.The cover takes almost 24 hours to dry.
The cover is good fit for my almost 4 months old ( I got the XS size),but as the other comments say it makes the little butt look huge :) I used it over the Mother Ease fitted diaper as well over the Disana Organic Knitted Diaper both with a stay dry insert; I was really impressed :) the cover did its job :) the diaper was soaked wet but both my baby's butt and his pants stayed dry. I will definitely get one more cover and will use it for night time. It will be great solution for us for coming Summer. For Winter nights however I am planing to use the wool shirt with fitted cloth diaper with stay dry insert over that the Disana cover and over that the Disana Organic Wool Sleeping Bag as the cover and diaper will make the little bum too big to fit in pajama pants over them.
I am really very impressed with this diaper cover and happy I gave it a try :) I used cloth diapers with my older daughter but never wool covers although I had one,but didn't really know how to use it.
I do recommend this diaper cover as great over night solution.

The diaper cover is very soft and snuggly, but they are huge. They are only suitable for night time. I didn't find the product to be very absorbant, as per all the other reviews. My sons bedding was soaking wet in the morning. I'm going to try to felt and lanolize the covers a second time hopefully that helps.
Comment by Ava's Appletree:
Disana wool covers need to be lanolized twice with a concentrated lanolin such as Disana Lanolin Conditioner before the first use to be fully waterproof. Please give your wool cover a second lanolin bath. Generally there is no need to felt the wool cover, just make sure it is always lanolized and you should have no problems with leaks. Please contact us if you require any more information or help!

I'm so excited about my new wool covers! My daughter used to sweat so much in her PUL covers, but the wool covers are much more breathable. I'm so happy I discovered Disana. Love them!

We love our blue Disana diaper cover. It is such a rich colour, it is really nice to touch and it is very absorbent.
The best part about this product is the high ribbed waist that makes this cover the perfect fit for any baby. It is just one of those products that we really enjoy using.
