Disana are not only concerned about avoiding contaminants in the fibres of their thread: people’s living conditions and environmental protection in the countries where they are cultivated are also important criteria which they bear equal responsibility for, just like all the other links in the production chain.

We advise you to hand wash all your Disana articles as they are made from natural, untreated wool. Machine wash at your own risk as shrinkage is possible and can even destroy items if you are not careful.
It’s best to hand wash in your bathroom’s sink. It has the right volume and an ergonomic working height. You also need a mild wool shampoo or a natural baby shampoo. Wash with Luke warm water (25 Degrees), add the wool shampoo and mixer into the water, then add the woollen item to be washed.
Heavy stains can be carefully treated with ox-gall soap before, which is well known as the natural stain remover. Slightly push the article carefully and repeat the process a few times.
Do not wring or rub it, simply push it a few times, max. 1-2 minutes, that’s all.
Take the woollen article out of the washing water and rinse it carefully with fresh water at the same temperature (also 25c, not hotter or colder). To remove the rinse water off the article, squeeze it with utmost care. Woollen articles mustn’t dry in a hanging positions they can mis shape.Dry flat on a towel or across the top of a drying rack. Re-shape whilst damp and dry out of direct sunlight and away from heaters.
Washing wool isn’t more complicated than washing your hair. Because wool is hair too - sheep hair. You do not need to pre-wash your Disana articles before the first wear since they are almost free of chemicals, they don't contain and substances that could hard your child. Wear them and feel comfortable.
It is best to wash wool as little as possible. Wool is self-cleaning. Wool fibres have an extraordinary surface that rejects dirt particles, as well as bad odors and sweat and stops them from entering the fibres. Airing is often enough to remove the dirt particles from the surface and to make the woolen article hygienically clean.
These dungarees are great. The quality of the knitting and of the fabric is high, and the hazelnut color is true to the images on the website. My daughter seems very comfortable when wearing them and they keep her nice and warm when playing on our cold floor.
As written in the info on the website they are generous in sizing, which is totally cool, because then the little one can fit the dungarees all throughout the fall, winter and even the early spring months which are often quite cold where we live (Denmark).
But the straps on the dungarees comes with buttons that are placed very low on the straps. The result is straps constantly falling down from the shoulders and ultimately pants falling off when maneuvering around the floor. You can’t adjust the straps for a tighter fit, which means you have to wait quite a substantial amount of months before your child can actually wear the dungarees without the straps falling down. Also the buttons are sewed on very poorly. One fell off and the other is dangling and very much on its way to fall off too.
I solved the problem by sewing on another pair of buttons higher up on the straps. And when my daughter grows too tall, I can button the straps in the buttons that came with the dungarees places lower on the straps. But it would have been nice if Disana had thought of this themselves.
So overall: I like the dungarees! But I’m a bit disappointed in the unpracticality of the button situation and very annoyed by the sloppiness of the sewing.
