Wool diaper covers and wool diaper wraps are the only diaper covers that are composed of all natural, antifungal, wear-resistant fibers. Wool is soft, breathable, and absorbent, keeping baby cool in the summer months and warm in the winter months.
Though wool cloth diaper covers and wool diaper wraps are NOT waterproof, they are water-resistant and untreated wool can absorb more than three times its weight in moisture before it begins to feel wet; an awesome attribute for a cloth diaper cover most loved for effective night time diapering.
Although not as trim as waterproof diaper covers, wool diaper covers, like the Sustainablebabyish Wool Soaker allow for air circulation to maintains baby's natural body temperature, reducing the heat that triggers bacterial growth, which in turn leads to diaper rashes.
This type of diaper cover does require a bit more attention when it comes to washing, drying and lanolizing - we recommend a few wool care products like Eucalan Wool Wash. It also helps to rotate a minimum of three diaper covers or wool diaper wraps in your cloth diaper cover stash.
