Disana wool nappy wrap is made of especially fine, soft Merino wool, these woollen overpants are suitable even for very small children. Ideal for families keen to avoid the use of any plastics or polyesters as the woolen overpants are entirely natural fibres.
The high knitted waistband of soft merino wool not only stops leaks but helps keep baby's tummy warm.
The way it works is that the merino wool absorbs liquid from the nappy underneath which is then neutralised by the natural lanolin in the organic merino wool. This is wools natural self cleaning function. Wool absorbs more than 30% of it's own weight in moisture
If the nappy wrap gets damp, just hang it out to dry. Thanks to the natural self-cleaning function of the organic merino wool fibres, the nappy pants are left hygienically clean. If the wool nappy wrap gets soiled or starts leaking, then you will need to wash it and relanolise as below.
Disana Wool wraps are sold lanolised but through customer feedback we find they need lanolising prior to use. Please lanolise before first use to waterproof the wool or they will not work. We recommend doing this three times before use to create a great "barrier" but, to be honest, most people don't. You will need to repeat about once a month. Full details below.
The organic merino wool wrap just simply pulls up over the nappy. No Velcro, No Poppers just pull up and go!
Lanolising will cause the nappy wrap to shrink slightly we have accounted for this in the sizes below, the sizes we give vary from the official sizes Disana suggest.
Up to 36lbs
You can use any fitted reusable nappies under a Disana wool wrap. Use the correct size guide as appropriate.
All Disana's wool clothing and nappy covers are made of sustainable natural fabrics.
Please note that under EU labelling regulations, stating the type of wool is not allowed, only a statement of "100% wool" is allowed. However, this wrap is organic Merino wool. Merino wool is very fine, soft and springy and not itchy as many people imagine wool to be.
Made by Merino Sheep in Patagonia in southern part of Argentina and spun in Europe. Disana's wool is Mulesing Free.
Disana's organic Merino wool is a very soft fabric so care must be taken when washing your wool garment.
Disana recommends hand washing or machine washing on a 30C wool programme but never any hotter than 30C . If the water is hotter than 30deg C the natural wool fibres can be "shocked" and will irreversably shrink. In our experience we find it best to hand wash wool and it will maintain the shape and size of your product better.
Use Disana's wool shampoo and Disana's Lanolin Conditioner which are gentle and designed to protect and replenish wool's natural oils.
To hand-wash your organic Merino wool, dilute your wool detergent in cool water, max 30C (lukewarm only, should feel coolish), in a bowl. Add your woollens to the bowl, gently stirring and squeezing the detergent through. Rinse using water at the same temperature, otherwise your wool will be subjected to "shock" and might felt up. So lukewarm/coolish at 30C again.
DO NOT: When you wash wool do not wring, soak, brush or rub vigorously as the wool fibres may be damaged and your garment may felt up and shrink. Just squeeze the water through.
To dry, gently squeeze water out and wrap your wool clothes in a towel to remove the excess water.
Air-dry naturally avoiding direct heat. So, hanging on a drying rack over the bath is good, or on a clothes horse, or flat on a dry towel. Mine often end up over the back of chairs or on the washing line (I haven't had a problem with the the heat of the English being too hot, yet!).
Re-shape while damp.

Disana's decision on any warranty claim is final.
Always thought wool covers are unreasonably complicated to wash and use, however couple months ago I bought the disana tie nappies and while they do work with other covers, it was suggested that they work best with disana wool pants. So I gave in and purchased 2. I wish I had done this earlier. They are soft, natural, breathable and leave no sockmarks on my baby. Washing and lanolin application is straightforward.PS. disana says their pants are pretreated, however based on my experience you do need to treat with lanolin prior putting them on.
How I wish I had been brave enough to try wool earlier. I was gifted a pair of wool longies from a friend but wanted a short pair for the summer. Having both have me the motivation to try the lanolising process which was soooo much easier than expected. I have no idea how these stay dry but they are amazing. I just wish I'd bought some a year ago rather than waiting until my son was 19 months old and dealing with numerous leaks from a mis-fitted wrap. They have started to felt/bobble a little after about a months usage but this doesn't affect how they work and it is wool afterall. Would highly recommend wool, and these overpants in particular, for anyone wanting a great night time nappy cover.
Soft and comfy perfect for a good night sleep I have 2 so I can air alternately it's a shame I don't have more when it comes to wash day as they take a while to dry.
This was our first woolen nappy wrap to cover very thick night time nappies (the motherease were causing red marks and would leak often . I decided to ignore all the reviews and go with the instructions that came with it by not lanolising first. Big mistake. I would say it has taken me probably 4 attempts at lanolising before it now doesn't leak at night. They take so long to dry as well tho I have discovered that if I put it on an 800rpm spin only cycle it will then only take a day rather than 2 or 3. Very happy now. She never complains that her legs hurt anymore. Also, the whole 'cover with natural clothing/bedding seems to be true as her fleece onesie was quite wet but the cotton pjs not the following day.
These fit really nicely on my little girl and donít leave any socks marks or rashes! Still going through the initial teething problems with getting them lanolised properly so she doesnít wake up wet.
We love our wool wrap at night time, it's super easy to get her ready for bed - in summer we have been skipping the pj bottoms - and was surprisingly easy to lanolise before use. Next time we will start with wool as soon as baby stops popping at night, as its so nice to snuggle them when they are wearing them and saves so much washing!
I got 2 of these woollen wraps when I started running short on PUL wraps that were still water tight, my intention was to use these overnight over my night nappies (motherease onesize + boosters). The instructions to lanolise them on the nappy lady website were easy to follow. After the first night of me worrying that they couldn't possibly be watertight, I was delighted to find that they are fantastic and we have had no leaks in around 2 months of using them, even with a totally soaked nappy. They are soooo much comfier than wraps and leave no marks on her skin.They do take a couple of days to dry after washing, so I did get 2. But can last around 3 weeks before needing to wash.The only downside is that I didn't discover these 4.5 years ago when I started with cloth.
Bought for my chunky 9 week old as a night time cover and Iím really pleased with it. I followed TNL instructions for applying lanolin and weíre on week 2 with absolutely no leaks despite her night nappy being wet through in the morning. Iíll definitely be buying another pair.
We have a few Disana woolly pants and they are just the softest cover we found. They never let us down . Needs to be lanolised before using even if the packaging says otherwise !
Honestly I was so hesitant trying wool. But everyone kept saying I should. I always worry about sockmarks on my baby, and then recently I squirted some second hand ellas house bumhuggers, these are very long nappies and tonight to cover with a wrap!So I decided I was finally going to try wool. I lanolised it three times, had it dry and used it as soon as it was dry.We didnít stop using it until it needed a wash. Then straight after it had dried after lanolising again we put it back on😬Looking to buy another. Oh and I also went for the size larger because she was on the end of the size range but not quite out of it yet.Itís perfect!
Got these to use at night, but didn't end up using them much because cleaning up after LO's night time not-infrequent number 2s was too much hassle. They don't fit well under sleepsuits, even those cut for cloth as they make a night nappy super bulky.
Used during daytime after lanolising twice. Seems to work. No leaks over fitted nappies. Keeps baby warm in winter. Recommend as lanolising is easier than i first thought.
The wool cover is easy to use, and very comfortable for baby to wear over her bulky night nappy. The Nappy Lady has some clear instructions on how to lanolise - we would recommend lanolin rather than the disana conditioner. And you definitely need to lanolise before first use!Will buy more wool wraps as baby grows!
Disana Woolen Soakers are amazing quality. Lanolised 3 times and was ready for use. They are the best solution for night time for us. Amazing service The Nappy Lady.
This was my first ever try of using a wool wrap. The instruction video on how to wash an lanolize from the website was super helpful and it worked really well. Nappy fits so well and has made night time so much easier. I bought the medium for my skinny yet tall 10 month old. Itís a nice size and it doesnít leave any marks. Very soft on the skin! Will be getting another one so I can alternate when one is drying. Mine took around 2 days to dry like others have mentioned. Definitely recommend!
These are a delightful pair of woolly pants and look hilarious on my baby - they're also extremely snug! However, they are definitely in no way waterproof, even after lanolinising. I was sceptical but desperate as none of the wraps we have (which we use over the tots bots bamboozle stretch nighttime nappies) really seem to give 100% waterproofing. I guess used over the top of a wrap they help a bit, as they stop the baby getting cold at least (same way a thick jersey keeps you warm even when its raining) but I must say they do not keep the wee in. Sad times!! I was so hopeful!! Maybe I am doing something wrong???
If they are very snug then this could cause leaks as it will put constant pressure on the wool.
I love them!
I was a little skeptical about these, but am so pleased we took the plunge and bought a pair! My baby is a heavy wetter and these have been a godsend as a cover for her night nappies. No leaks, self cleaning and super soft. Have just bought another pair!
I got these over pants after a recommendation and am so pleased with them! My 6 month old had been in reusables since birth and nighttimes were getting really fractious. I couldn't shake the feeling she was uncomfortable in her nappy by the way she was constantly wriggling. Since switching to the disana woolen wrap she's been a lot calmer, less wriggly and super cosy now the winter nights are drawing in. They're also so easy to care for by simply airing them out in the day. Big thumbs up!
I've struggled lately with my baby (12m) rolling over onto her front when sleeping and this making the nappy leak on her belly. I used this wool wrap with my existing little lamb nappies with boosting and I've not had a single leak or problem. Must be much comfier too as she wakes up with no sock Mark's etc. Absolutely love it and would use this from birth with any other baby!
Up to now i feel like giving Disana 2 stars only. As the Nappy Lady suggests, the nappy needs to be lanolinised. The first time i followed the nappies instructions very carefully but i had a massive leak the morning after. So i washed the nappy the morning after. Again i followed the advice on how to wash and dry the nappy (i put it on top of the microwave shelves u use to heat food and placed it on my table). The result was that the fabric became sooo big i could have fit in. I tried rewashing it and being gently but nothing. So i put it in the washing machine and used the gentle wool program but it has become felted. To be honest now it is more like the size i need again. I am going to try to lanolise it but i have little hopes. I would recommend not buying this one but buying plastic wraps.I give the product 2 stars because the wool is nice and soft. But i would not buy it again ever.
We were having a lot of problems with leaking nappies overnight. He wore a bambozle night nappy with multiple boosters. He would always be wet through in the morning. (He does drink a lot and sleep for 12hours). Using the wool pants instead of the plastic nappy wrap has made a big improvement. Itís not perfect but itís much better. You do have to lanosilse them your self even through the pants say you donít. But itís easy
Really impressed with these, it took me a while to lanolise properly,, but now they work brilliantly and look so comfy.They do seem quite small though.
Perfect at night over a little lamb or your choice of fitted. Just make sure your original nappy is absorbent enough. Can be a pain to start with wool but worth it! Much more breathable.
We hadn't found any wrap big enough for our chunky thighs and little belly that would also cover his giant night nappies... then we found these. They fit over everything comfortably and the best part they never leak! No need to wash every time, they dry in the day and are ready to use again the next night. Yes you have to think about washing the wool carefully but not very often. Definitely worth it.
I have no idea how it works but it does. My baby wears his for 12+ hours overnight and no leaks or dampness. Do not let lanolising put you off. It's really not that complicated and it only needs doing every few weeks and then it's perfect. The wool is super soft and even cool in the hot weather. As always five star service from The Nappy Lady too.
Absolutely my favourite covers! Using them at night time, nothing goes through! Bought two and I use them alternately, washing maybe about once a month as they do not smell like PUL covers, and they dry so fast if you follow the instructions. Oh, and the colours are just beautiful! Would use them during the day as well as so easy to pull up and down and they look so cute, but I donít use shaped nappies during the day and baby too wriggly for nippas at 6 months old. Highly recommended! Wool is by far the best cover!
I love the Disana wool cover. I lanolised it despite the instructions onthe nappy and it works brilliantly. I have since made a wool nappy myself but Disana is for sure my favourite. I wish it came in more colours.
I love our woolly pants! We were getting leaks most nights with a variety of wraps but not had one leak since started using wool 3 weeks ago. They are so easy to put on and really soft on little ones legs so no marks at all unlike lots of others wraps we've tried. I'll definitely be purchasing more.
Don't be put off by the lanolising process! It's simpler than making a cup of tea. I started using these on my 1yr over a bamboozle with Little Lamb tripple bamboo booster or Petit Lulu night nappy and I am totally converted. No matter the plastic wrap make I tried they often leaked and left sore looking sock marks - this is no longer a problem! The wool is super comfortable and I haven't had a leak yet. No daily washing either - a month on and only starting to think it might need a wash soon. A cheaper option too as you only need 1/2 at any one time. Should have converted to wool much earlier!
These pants are great. We've only just started using them, so can't comment on how long they last before needing to be lanolised again, but so far so good in terms of comfort and ease of use, as well as being effective.Also top marks on the eco-friendly packaging they came in.
I'd been eyeing up a wool wrap for a while before I took the plunge. It turned out to be a great decision and I just wish I'd done it sooner!It took a couple of goes with the Disana wool shampoo to get fully lanolised, but it's now working brilliantly and starting to felt nicely in the crotch area, just through normal wear. My boy wears it in the daytime over a Terry nappy, essentially as a pair of shorts (with legwarmers for cold days). I love the look of it with a pair of knee high socks! For a younger baby I'd probably choose a shaped nappy underneath, for the sake of containment.I love the simplicity of it, and the lanolising turned out to be pretty straightforward too. I'm totally sold and will definitely be back for more.
I bought one pair to try and was really impressed so ordered another two. Not sure how Iíve done this, probably baby brain, but Iíve managed to shrink them in the washing machine on my wool cycle. I thought Iíd lowered the temp to 30 (for some reason my wool cycle is set to 40) now I have three tiny pairs!! Absolutely gutted. Because of the time it takes to prepare them Iíve now been using disposables for a month longer than I wanted to. Because of my silly mistake it will now be another 2 weeks until I can start using washables again. My baby gets a terrible rash from any plastic style wrap. A great wrap, just be vigilant with washing temp, probably best to do 20deg. I really thought Iíd hit 30deg button?!
Found it a bit confusing as the nappy lady recommends lanolising but when the product came it said on the packaging that there was no need to lanolise. I lanolised anyway but not sure Iíve done it properly. Anyway itís brilliant the nights that itís worked. Other nights itís been a bit damp in the morning but still lasted all night. Iíd recommend.
We really love these. Our daughter gets terrible nappy rash from teething, and this was recently exacerbated by a bad reaction to some bambino mio liners (not bought from this site!). Her rash kept getting worse, and nothing seemed to help. It eventually calmed down of its own accord, but using these wraps at nighttime definitely made a difference and she hasn't had a rash since. We were using mother ease airflow overnight anyway, which are much more breathable than most wraps, but even so the difference with these is huge. I do find them get smelly pretty quickly - she is almost 2 and has very strong smelling wee, especially when teething (which is pretty much always at the moment). But really a minor issue in the scheme of things. Just wished we tried these sooner - they are really good value for money and weirdly cute too. Just about to buy some more....
I love these for nights, they are so easy to use, completely cover the nappy at all times and we've never had any leaks. A lot of people say to lanolise before first use but I didn't and we have been using them for a few weeks now without washing. Perfect!
Really enjoying our new wool wrap, been using about 3 weeks now and Iíve lanolised once a week so far. The last one seems to have really taken, I think it just takes a few goes to build up. Never had any leaks from the start and the wool is really soft on babies skin, not itchy at all and also no marks on her skin in the morning! I have another in my basket ready to order we love them so much. I went for XL for my 7 month old girl who is on 95th centile for height and weight. We use the wool over a L Bamboo Sandy with L Sandys Bamboo Booster next to skin and a Stuffie between nappy and booster folded in the Ďwet zoneí. So glad I took the plunge to try, they really are magic!
Truly revolutionary! Need lanolising as nappy lady says (despite what the packaging says!) But are so good as a cover. Once you go wool you never go back!!!!
These covers are so soft and look so comfortable on my 10 week old baby. We use these for nights over a Tots Bots bamboozle and they are fantastic! I only had to lanolise this cover once before use and got around 3 weeks of constant nightly use out of it before having to lanolise again. I am planning to place another order for one of these again soon. I ordered the medium which fits my 15lbs baby perfectly with plenty of growing room still. Highly recommend!
I really love the woollen over pants, easy to use. And no more marks on my babyís chubby thighs!!! I use them with the knitted muslin from disana. I recommend them!
Loving this cover over Disana tie on nappies. We have had no leaks and no need to wash immedIately as they dry so quickly without any smells. Really easy to put on, even a wriggly 27 month old. Wish Iíd taken the plunge earlier.
We use pocket nappies in the day and needed a night nappy. These are fab, she is 5 months and doesn't poop at night so these are very low maintenance. She's dry and none wrinkly after 12 hours and the nappies haven't smelt at all. They are bulky so sleepsuits and vest have been difficult to get but worth it. Def my. Favourite nappy. No plastic, and I don't worry about leaks as you can't really put it on wrong so I don't have to check it like the pocket nappies. We have 2 which has been perfect for nights as they take a while to dry when lanolise as you have to lay them flat.
Wonderful wool pants excellent for overnight. Never leak for us and are comfy for baby with a high rise and wide leg elastics and soft finish. They seem pretty thick and dry slowly but are very effective and waterproof. I'd use on a baby of any age including newborn, this wool is so lovely for their skin.
I have been wearing Disanas as my baby's night covers since he was a week old, rotating between three small and two medium ones (which also fit my almost 4kg newborn). They are truly comfortable, especially in comparison with those tight newborn and OS pul covers that leave red marks on his legs and back! They do come out a bit moist in the wet zone with every change, but still I never had any leaks. Even though the washing and lanolizing process may seem a bit much, I only had to do it after 2 weeks, a pretty reasonable interval in my opinion. Goes without saying that they are also the softest, cutest covers out there. Can't praise Disanas enough!
I love these- natural and a gorgeous colour. A bit of a pest to wash every week with the lanolin, but worth it to avoid plastic. We just use them overnight.
These are lovely wool shorts, very soft and comfortable, and well made. Definitely more breathable than PUL wraps, which meant my son's nappies didn't get quite as sodden overnight. They do need a lanolin treatment before first use (up to 3 is recommended for full waterproofing), despite what the label says!
These covers have changed my life. I was starting to go insane when my son was waking up drenched every morning and after each nap, but that all changed when I found these covers! At first I didnít believe wool would work and the covers were so big I thought of returning them, but I tried them and was instantly impressed. They were the precise barrier I needed to keep his clothes dry even with a soaking wet diaper beneath. It took me a little while to master the washing and lanolizing process (I destroyed 2 covers through trial and error), but Iím now a pro and donít find it any more difficult than washing any other laundry. These covers donít absorb and wonít prevent leaks, so you need enough absorbency in the diaper alone for your child, but these covers do a superb job of keeping moisture from wicking into cotton clothes, sheets, sofas, rugs, you name it! When PUL begins to fail you, this natural everlasting alternative is definitely the way to go!
This is lovely and soft, I use it for overnight over a terry square so my boy has a break from elastic (and because he rarely poos overnight). It's breathable and his skin is pristine in the mornings. I had a couple of leaks when it was new, once I'd lanolised again (the instructions say you don't need to, but it worked better for me once I had) and sorted out a different terry fold so there were no thin bits for wee to flood through, it's worked perfectly. I've been surprised a few mornings at how wet his nappy was as the wool was so dry outside, it really does work. No smells after hanging up all day it's ready to use again.
We bought this two fit my 18 month old. We sized it up as per the recommendations and they are enormous! We now need to purchase smaller ones. We tried them without lanolising as recommended on the label but they leaked. Once they were lanolised we have had no issues. Itís truly magical that the nappy undneath can be soaked and containing a poo and once the wrap come off it doesnít smell of anything other than sheep. Very happy to find a breathable organic nighttime wrap.
I had seen these recommended on a few blogs and so a few weeks into using hand-me-down disposables, and enjoying them, I decided to splash out on two pairs. They. Are. Amazing. I had already purchased some solid lanolin from The Nappy Lady so I did do a treatment to start with. Easy to dry, (roll up in a towel and press out the water, then they dry very quickly). They do look large on my 6 week newborn! But I really really like them. It's easy to tell if she's wet, as you can feel the 'cold/damp' through the clothes. It's had some poo on it, and it was easy to wash off and dry. The most noticeable thing is nappy rash. Using PUL covers meant that it was a hot, humid, sweaty nappy each time, but the wool in this design means her bottom can breath. I can't recommend them highly enough.
