This brushed cotton liner is folded into a strip and used as an absorbent liner for the Disana tie-diapers. When the cloth is made, the cotton is lightly brushed, which not only makes it pleasantly soft and velvety, but also multiplies its relative surface, meaning it can absorb even more moisture. Cotton quickly absorbs moisture and spreads it across the surface of the fibers, meaning that cotton liners can store a great deal of moisture.
At Disana they have spent a lot of time with midwives and nurses to learn exactly what is needed to create the most comfortable and natural diaper for babies. The result is the disana diapering system. Baby's skin must be able to breathe. Therefore, it is essential for a diaper set to allow air to pass in and out. Yet, at the same time of course, it must adequately absorb moisture.
Using pure, all-natural fibers is the best way to guarantee both these qualities. This is the very reason why Disana has chosen to use only approved untreated and all-natural cotton, wool and silk for its entire nappy/diaper set.
The essential parts to the Disana diaper system are:
- TIE-ON KNIT DIAPER - This is the actual diaper. Made of pure cotton, it absorbs most of the fluid and retains it inside its fibers.
- FLANNEL LINER/PREFOLD/INSERT - It absorbs the remaining moisture and keeps the baby dry for a long period of time. You can use the Disana flannel liner or other prefolds/inserts you have on hand
- WOOL COVER - This provides the watertight outer covering for the diaper. The Disana wool cover is amazingly soft and great at stopping leaks.
