Wool fabric is natural, antimicrobial and best for babies with sensitive skin. Wool has amazing breathability making it the perfect fabric for diapering in both hot and cold climates and in any season. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture while still feeling dry to the touch. Wool diaper covers can go 2-3 weeks between washes. Since they only need to be washed if soiled or if they begin to smell when they are dry, fewer wool covers are needed than fleece or polyester covers.
Merino wool diaper covers are a great option for moderate to heavy wetters for both daytime and nighttime use. When paired with a quality absorbent fitted cloth diaper, the well-lanolized wool and fitted combination are guaranteed to leave you with dry sheets in the morning! Wool covers come in such a wide variety of styles such as soakers, leggings, longies, shorties, and footies. Many of these styles can be worn as clothing!
