Re: Disana wool leggings

I thought I read somewhere...on the Disana or Engel website perhaps, that those are not intended to be used as a diaper cover.

The GMD site says they are too thin.

Re: Disana wool leggings

we have some for our PL'd 4.5yr old DD. she wears them as warm leggings under dresses in the fall & winter. If you go by the # size they are right on. They do their sizing like Hanna Andersson. they are in no way IMO thick enough to use as a cover. I accidentally bought a pair off spots (listed as like new) that were felted they were stiff & not comfortable feeling. If you want to use them at night maybe use a thinner interlock wool cover under them?

Well I am glad I asked here before I bought them as a cover! Back to square one!

Re: Disana wool leggings

I don't think they're too thin for a cover, unless you have an extremely heavy wetter. It's much thicker than a lot of recycled wool or the cashmere blend stuff that woollybottoms uses.

Plus at the price they are, it's totally worth it IMO to get a pair and slightly felt them.

my kids are heavy wetters (we use all OS fitteds). I had to use an extra interlock cover under their woollybottoms or they felt damp on the outside.

maybe thick enough on their own for day use for a light wetter who is changed really often? I don't see how they could be thick enough for a night cover which the OP was thinking of using them for.
