Natural Wool Diaper Cover

Protect your baby (and yourself!) from diaper leaks with this Wool Diaper Cover!

 

Size
Add to Wishlist

This wool diaper cover is made from two layers of Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified Merino Wool and has a cotton interfacing in the wings and the front. Wool is highly absorbent. It will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and is slow to feel damp, yet remains breathable, allowing maximum circulation around your baby’s bum. It contains natural lanolin, which creates a waterproof barrier. The cover is easy to care for and does not need to be washed as often as cloth diapers. Three rows of snaps and latex free elastic provide an adjustable fit to accommodate your growing baby.

  • Newborn Cover: 0-3 months, 6-12 lbs.
  • Small Cover: 0-6 months, 8-18 lbs.
  • Medium Cover: 6-12 months, 15-25 lbs
  • Large Cover: 18-24 months, 20-35 lbs.

Fitted Cloth Diapers should be purchased with the covers. All cloth diapers are sold separately.

This product is an alternative to diaper covers made of synthetic materials.

This product comes with a instructional paper insert.

The cover is made of Oeko-Tex 100 certified Merino Wool.
The interfacing in the wings and the front of the cover are made of 100% cotton.
The elastic is made of latex-free cotton.
The thread is made of organic cotton.
The snaps are made of plastic.

 

Wool covers are used over a cloth diaper as another layer of protection from diaper leakage. The wool covers repel the liquid so that the diaper will become wet and soaked through evenly without leaking through the wool.

Hand wash and lay flat to dry.  Periodic lanolizing is needed for optimum absorbency.

To lanolize:

  • Begin with dry, clean wool. If lanolizing items with snaps, be sure to unsnap.
  • Draw a pan/bucket/sink of lukewarm water. Hot water will felt and shrink wool.
  • Take a separate cup of very hot water, add a pea size ( this is for approximately 2 to 3 articles) of pure lanolin. Stir to dissolve. Dissolving well is very important to avoid sticky spots on the wool.
  • Once well dissolved add to the sink of lukewarm water and mix well.
  • Add your wool, soaking it through with the lukewarm, lanolin-rich bath. Let sit for a minimum of 3 hours to overnight.
  • When it is time to dry the cover, avoid wringing or squeezing the fabric. This can cause it to become misshapen. Lay the article in a clean, dry towel and roll it to remove excess water. Lay flat to dry and you are ready to go!
  • Your wool can be air dried for weeks unless soiled, and used over and over before needing to washed. Lanolize once a month or so.

The snaps need to be removed from the cover and can be recycled in plastic recycling or single stream recycling.

The cover can be composted in backyard composting or industrial facility composting.
