Disana Woollen Nappy Overpants

Disana woolen overpants are made of fine soft Merino wool. The overpants stop leaks and keep babies tummy lovely and warm. Wool overpants absorb excess urine which is neutralised by the natural lanolin in the wool.

Our Price:  £12.00

Brand:  Disana
Drying Speed:  Fast
Material:  Merino Wool
Made In:  Germany

Made of especially fine, soft Merino wool, these woolen overpants are suitable even for very small children. The high knitted waistband not only stops leaks but helps keep babies tummy warm.


The way it works is that the wool absorbs any leaks from the nappy underneath which are then neutralised by the natural lanolin in wool.  If the wrap gets damp, then just hang it out to dry. Thanks to the natural self-cleaning function of the wool fibres, the pants are left hygienically clean.  If the wrap gets soiled or starts leaking, then you will need to wash it and relanolise as below.

Disana Wool wraps are sold unlanolised. 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.

Size Guide
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.

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.  

Washing Disana Wool Wrap
Disana's organic Merino wool is a very soft fabric so care must be taken when washing. Disana recommends hand washing or machine washing on a 30C wool programme but never any hotter than 30C.  Use a Diana's wool shampoo which is 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: Don't 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.

Work brilliantly but enormous
Thursday, 8 March 2018  | 

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.

I bought one pair of these a few months ago, and came back for a second one a few weeks ago. They are amazing. They take a few weeks to get fully lanolised (really do think 3 treatments is probably the magic number, but with both of ours I just did it once a week for the first 3 weeks and accepted that there could be some dampness in the morning at first). Once they are fully treated and felted a bit (haven't consciously felted them, just from washing and use), they are "bombproof". They are so soft, and seem more comfortable than any PUL wrap, though you can get the same spectacular overnight results with the Motherease Airflow, this seems kinder to the skin since wool breathes throughout. They take a long time to dry (1-2 days), but, again, once lanolised, they only need washing once a month unless they've been pooed on.

Been meaning to get round to knitting some woolies for my 11 month old, but obviously didn't quite manage it. These are a great intro, work really well. We use a bamboo terry square with 2/3 bamboo boosters and the outside is dry after 13 hours (overnight). Once we had under boosted and in the morning when she was standing she peed and it came straight thru- but an absorption problem not a wooly one! Also, great in the hot weather with nothing else on!

Better than I could believe

I dubiously tried these as we are trying to reduce plastic consumption ans I am amazed they really work! Just getting you to hand washing and lanolizing but so far so good! Can't recommend more highly!

Give wool a chance
Tuesday, 9 May 2017  | 

I was a bit sceptical that wool would be any use as a wrap for my six month olds nappy at night but low and behold it works! I would definitely advise lanolising the wrap three times as I did it only once and it didn't perform as well as it should. Definitely give this product a try and be brace you won't regret it.

I was a bit sceptical about this working but actually it's brilliant. I bought as my LO's legs were getting chaffed at night with her airflows and she also gets a sore bottom. Since using this wrap there has been no more chafing and her bottom is lovely and clear. The nappy I use is well boosted and I have never had a leak or damp night clothes.

Beats PUL wrap any day!

Far better than PUL wraps for night times. Baby isnt soaked by morning, lovely and soft and no red marks/sores left by wrap digging in. Highly recommend!
