This wool cover is a wrap style wool cover that is made from the same high quality organic wool that Disana is known for. The difference between this wool and the wool used in the Disana wool soakers is that this cover is made from boiled wool, which is a very unique natural fabric. The wool has been worked into a soft, fleecy material that absorbs all excess moisture. The practical shape of this cover makes it easy to put on your baby, and the soft wide velcro fasteners allow for an adjustable fit.
This cover is nice because there is no elastic at all around the legs or waist; instead, the cover features stretchy, ribbed wool around the legs and waist that is soft and comfortable against your baby's skin. The wide knitted waistband helps contain leaks as well. The cover has an extra wool layer sewn into the center, so it is designed to absorb even more moisture. This cover works very well, particularly for nights or naps; the boiled wool makes it virtually bulletproof and its high rise make it perfect for times when your baby is lying down. This cover is a great choice for diapers that also have a high rise because of its high coverage.
More about boiled wool: 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.
Size/ Fit: We have found that this wool cover runs very large, especially with the larger sizes (86/92 and 98/104), so we do not recommend sizing up. Pleaes let us know if you need specific measurements!

Care: Wool should always be washed by hand. This cover should be washed before using it on a baby for the first time. Although it has been re-oiled by the manufacturer after processing, we recommend lanolizing the cover at least one time, and possibly twice, before using it to renew its ability to repel moisture. If the soaker is leaking, lanolize again. Your baby should be able to wear this all night without any leaks at all. The wool will contain leaks better and better the more it is used as it becomes slightly more felted. Wool does not soil easily and does not retain odors, so it does not need to be washed very frequently. Please refer to our Wool Care guide for more details, and don't forget your wool care products.
