I LOVE wool! It smells so good, warm and comfy. I’ve been known to be found with my face full of our wool blankets. I always take a deep breath when we walk into Lismore Sheep Farm. Weird? Maybe. But wool diaper covers are little pieces of heaven that you can put on your baby, whether you use cloth or disposable diapers. They keep your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Longies, shorties, soakers, skirties, your options are endless.
Why would you choose wool? Wool is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial, wicks moisture away from your baby, is super breathable, less likely to leave your baby with a diaper rash, and is a sustainable option for mommas out there.
Wool is a bit scary to some. You need to wash it with care (not very often), and it needs to be lanolized to keep working. To lanolize just means to put the natural water-resistant oils back into the wool.
I took the liberty of finding you a couple of links on how to care for your wool. Here ya go!
And here’s a perfect video on how to care for the covers:
