Disana - Organic Wool Overpants in Natural
Disana's Woolen Overpants are made of especially fine, soft merino wool, suitable even for very small children. Unlike many wool garments, Disana's merino wool is soft and not itchy or scratchy. The high-knitted waistband of Disana's overpants not only stops leaks, it keeps baby’s tummy happy and warm.
The woolen Overpants or Diaper Cover absorb excess urine, which binds with the lanoline – the natural wax on wool fibres – and is neutralized, so if the woolen overpants have just got a little damp, it is enough to leave it to dry out in the fresh air.
Thanks to the natural self-cleaning function of the wool fibers, the pants are left hygienically clean.
Care instructions for wool
Wool is similar in its consistency to human hair. Therefore, as with hairwashing, only the mildest detergent should be used. Wool absorbs little dirt. The scales on the surface of the fibres effectively repel dirt.
Woolen clothing therefore seldom needs to be washed and usually a thorough airing will suffice. When washing is necessary, natural wool should be handwashed at a maximum temperature of 30°C. Wool is extremely sensitive to soap and soap suds. In washing wool therefore, always use a special wool detergent e.g. our Disana wool shampoo.
To avoid felting, wool should never be soaked, rubbed, wrung out or brushed. Simply squeeze gently by hand and hang to dry. Wool should never be dried on a heater or tumble dried.
