Disana's organic boiled merino wool outerwear has reached something akin to cult status over the years, and we can tell you why.
First up is the impeccable and thoughtful design of this overall. The hood is generous and will cover the entire head with room for movement. The buttons are chunky and made from the Tangua nut. The hood, neck and shoulders are lined with the softest organic cotton- perfect for snuggling in to. There are turn ups at the hands and feet- quickly converting into mittens and foot coverings when the weather gets more chilly.
Do not be deterred by this jacket being made out of wool! A common misconception is that wool and children are not compatible, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Pure wool, especially when it is boiled, is an exceptionally resilient material and also has natural stain deterring properties. If your small was to drop some juice or choccy on this jacket, you could easily wipe it off with a wet cloth. Take our word for it- you will be astounded at how easily mess rolls off pure wool. This item will only require a full wash in very rare circumstances as most of the time a spot clean and airing is sufficient. The manufacturer recommends a lukewarm hand wash, but if you trust your washing machine- a cold wool cycle with special wool shampoo will do the trick!
The high lanoline content in merino wool envelops every single fibre, making the overall almost waterproof- this makes it perfect to wear over clothes when playing and romping arround in the snow.
Finally, the eco and sustainability credentials of the brand. Disana only use the finest, 100% pure new merino wool, certified organic. Merino wool is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, absorbs its own body weight in liquid before it feels damp, rarely requires a clean, is temperature regulating and is not itchy. The specific wool used in these garments is sourced from sheep in Patagonia, at the very southern part of South America, supporting local farmers. Made in Germany.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SIZING IS VERY GENEROUS WITH PLENTY OF ROOM TO GROW. NO NEED TO SIZE UP.
