This sturdy wool vest is great for adding extra warmth for outdoor play. For those times when a shirt or sweater just isn't enough and your baby needs an extra layer of warmth without overheating. Disana's fine boiled wool will keep your child nice and warm without becoming too warm underneath. The extra long back prevents the vest from riding up and exposing your child to the cold air. The vest features large pockets and organic cotton lining around the neck for extra comfort. The zipper features a jamming guard on its upper end to protect your child's neck when closing the zipper.
This vest is very unique because it is made from disana's boiled wool, which is a very special natural fabric. Boiled wool is soft and light, so it is very comfortable for babies to wear. Boiled wool also protects against cold, is almost entirely windproof, and balances hot and cold temperatures. When wool is boiled, thousands of tiny air bubbles are trapped in by the material, forming an entirely natural barrier against hot and cold temperatures. The result is a fabric that keeps your baby snug and dry while letting your baby's skin breathe.
Made by disana, this vest is 100% organic boiled virgin Merino wool with 100% organic cotton lining around the neck. This wool is finely crimped, does not itch and feels soft and cozy against baby's sensitive skin.
Made in Germany
Care: Boiled wool articles are easy to care for. It should be cleaned very gently by hand. The lanolin contained in wool protects the fabric from dirt and harsh environments. If your boiled wool article does get dirty, you can shake or brush the dirt out very carefully. If the boiled wool becomes stinky, just leave the article out overnight to air out, or in the bathroom while you shower (the humidity from the shower will help foul smells to disappear and will smooth out wrinkles). If you do need to wash boiled wool, just wash by hand in tepid water using a mild wool wash. Do not wring, squeeze, or rub wool. Lay flat to dry. You can read more here about wool care.

This is a beautiful, warm vest. The berry colour is very nice (it is a warm raspberry colour, not a bright pink) and the vest is well made. It is also cut nice and long in the back. The vest runs large. My daughter has just turned 2 and I think she will be able to wear the 98/104 for several years.
