Our materials used


The heart of our hold-out diapers is made of high-quality loden made from pure new wool. The word "Loden" probably originally comes from Old High German and means something like "coarse woolen stuff".

It was originally used to make coats and blankets and was traditionally the durable clothing material of the farming population in Europe.

Loden has excellent properties that we take advantage of.

The new wool for the loden is usually woven and then milled and either pressed or brushed until fluffy. This elaborate processing makes the loden not only more resistant and warming, but also extremely water-repellent. The wool fat (lanonlin) contained in the fibers makes the fabric even more dense and extremely water-repellent.

Due to the fabric structure of the loden, a regular and controlled heat balance takes place, creating a microclimate zone on the body. Loden does not let the cold through, retains body heat and guarantees exceptional comfort.

New wool absorbs the moisture from the body and releases it onto the surface of the fabric. It can also absorb up to 1/3 of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet.

Due to the structure of the product and the wool lanolin, virgin wool is absolutely insensitive to dirt. This means that dirt and grime can be easily brushed off the loden when it is dry.

The loden we use is very thin and very dense even when ungreased. It is a woven wool fabric, so all of our diapers and wool covers are non-stretchy.

The loden is produced regionally in a traditional company, is free of pesticides, not chemically treated and complies with Ökotex Standard 100.


The outer materials of the holding diapers are made from, among other things, woven linen.
Retaining diapers are worn over pants and therefore pose completely different challenges to the outer material than standard cloth diaper covers.

Linen refers to both the plant, the “common linen”, and the fabric made from the plant fiber.

Linen is one of the oldest textiles used by humanity. Linen was made into fabrics 7,000 years ago. This extended from Roman antiquity to the European Middle Ages. During this time, almost exclusively wool and linen were used to make fabrics for clothing.

Wool and linen offer a wonderful material combination due to their properties.

Linen has outstanding properties and is a wonderful, sustainable fabric with a long tradition.

The linen fiber is smooth and the linen fabric traps little air, so linen is lint-free and less susceptible to dirt and bacteria. The fiber is naturally bactericidal, almost antistatic and dirt-repellent.

Linen absorbs up to 35% humidity and quickly exchanges this moisture with the surrounding air.

It is advisable to wear breathable clothing made from natural materials, especially in hot weather. But linen fabrics have another property: they have a cooling effect. Several studies conducted in Central Asia have found that people wearing linen clothing had 3-4° lower skin surface temperatures.

Thanks to its anti-bacterial and water-binding properties, linen ensures lower moisture, prevents the development of bacteria and absorbs odors.

The linen fiber is very tear-resistant and extremely inelastic. The tear resistance makes the linen durable and robust. The linen naturally has a fine shine and is stable with some stability. This means that the linen diapers and pants seem quite rigid at the beginning. However, it becomes softer over time and after each wash.

Wool knit

Our high-quality wool knit is made in Italy from wonderfully soft mulesing-free merino wool.
The medium-thick quality makes it easy to grip and durable.
The initially quite smooth knit becomes very soft and fluffy when washed. A slight pilling is not a disadvantage and is more of a testament to the good quality of the wool, as the fine hairs have not been removed from it through chemical processes. The wool knots can be easily removed with a wool razor or and usually do not come back.
Regular care treatments with lanolin keep wool clothing supple and contribute to the self-cleaning ability of the merino knit.
Wool has the property that it often only needs to be aired out when it is slightly dirty. Odors and traces of urine are neutralized when hanging in the fresh air overnight.
Light contamination can often simply be brushed out.
Because wool clothing needs to be washed so rarely, it is not only easy to care for but also ecologically sustainable.

For the cuffs of the wool trousers and cuffs we use ribbed cuffs made from pure, organic, virgin wool with a small amount of elastane. The cuffs are so dimensionally stable and fit perfectly.
