Wool diaper covers are probably most widely known for their wonderful leak protection. Wool will keep baby's clothing, bedding and your lap dry. It initially resists moisture forcing the diaper underneath to soak up as much as possible. Of course your first line of protection IS that absorbent diaper underneath your cover. But once the diaper has reached its soaking point, the wool will now begin to soak moisture up. The porous outer layers of the fibers quickly absorb (and then evaporate) moisture. It will absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch.
No! In fact wool is naturally temperature regulating and will keep your baby warm in the cool weather and cool in the hot weather. And considering your baby's bottom will often need a diaper cover, wool is the coolest option vs. plastic type alternatives.
Wild Coconut Wear wool is selected specifically for it's softness and durability. It is a 95/5 merino wool/spandex blend interlock meaning it is 95% wool, 5% spandex blended into a single yarn which is knit on a machine into fabric. Interlock means it is a stretchy knit that looks the same on both sides. The spandex gives the fabric stretch and memory to return to it's original state.
The wool used is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. You can read more about here- Oeko Tex Standard 100 .
The most frequently asked question is what size to get. The most important step to purchasing the correct size is taking measurements over the bulkiest diaper you will be using with the cover and comparing them to the stated measurements in each listing. Particularly the rise. Hopefully some of these photos will also help if you are still unsure. Remember, to be trim, pull on soaker style covers are supposed to fit snugly. They stretch an amazing amount. Many people are shocked, thinking when they first see a new one that it looks small until putting it on. But it also does not hurt to size up when you can get away with it, they just won't be as trim.
