Wool Diaper Cover
Wool diaper covers are awesome because they are made of natural fibers and they are very breathable, great for overnight. The way the wool works as a diaper cover is it is lanolized to keep the wet in and to neutralize odors. Lanolin is a waterproof oil substance that comes off of the natural wool during processing. You only have to lanolize your covers once a month, or when they start leaking. Wool comes in a various styles, the top is a wool wrap which uses touch tape closures and works a lot like any other diaper cover. Next are wool longies which are wool pants to use as diaper covers that also keep baby warm. The bottom picture is a wool soaker it pulls up like underwear. Another great thing about wool is it is so easy to make, all of these were made by me and I will have tutorials on how to sew each coming soon!
