Disana leggings are awesome. We purchased three pairs of these last fall, and I can't wait to use them again this fall and winter. They are comfy, cozy, and nice and stretchy. Made of 100% organic virgin merino wool, the leggings are long lasting and adorable. These photos were taken today, with one of the three pairs we wore multiple times per week all last fall and winter. With a wash and shave they look brand new! The sweater happens to be Disana as well, and is sold by Little Spruce Organics too!
What do I love about Disana leggings? Well, besides how comfy they are, they have a unique feature in their stretchiness. They are the only thing I've found that can fit comfortably and easily over the thickest of the thick wool soakers and covers. They themselves are designed to be used only as daytime covers between frequent changes, but I ended up only washing them with some wool wash containing lanolin and leaving it at that. (Don't worry, part two of my diapering with wool guide will be out in another week or so with everything you need to know about wool care!)
In all of these photos, we got out the old diapers for demo, and she's wearing an XL Sustainablebabyish OBF diaper, a LG Sustainablebabyish cover and Disana leggings sized 98/104 (2-3yrs). They all fit last fall/winter as well, and the leggings we had cuffed back then. She's currently 39 inches tall and 35.5 lbs. Last fall she was 36.5 inches tall and 32 lbs.

They also happen to come in a gorgeous rainbow of beautiful, vibrant colors. It is worth mentioning that these leggings do pill a little more than most wool we owned, so be prepared to shave them. I will also say when they first arrived they were not as squishy as they have since become. After giving them their initial bath, I soaked them in some Mrs. Meyers fabric softener (you could use Ecover too) and after two washes and soaks they were super soft! (Confused about "shaving" and soaking... just wait for part two of my wool guide!) We ended up using them mostly around the house at home and for bedtime, but she still wore these out as well plenty of times. When we lost power during hurricane Sandy for 9 days and our house's temperature inside got down into the low 50's, I was so grateful for these leggings!
