The World of Wool – Part 1: My New-Found Love

(Some links to products in this post are affiliate links, which help support the blog!)

For a long time, I was nervous about venturing in to the world of wool. So many cloth diapering mamas I knew would rave about it, but it just seemed like SO MUCH WORK!

Then, all of our nighttime diaper options became ineffective. Leaks everywhere, multiple sheet changes…so we resorted to using disposables at night again. The leaks were contained! And THEN…

One morning I came in to Little Man’s room to get him ready for the day, and HE WAS NOT WEARING A DIAPER! Awesome. (Luckily, the bedding was still clean and dry!)

So, I decided to give wool a try. I could always resell them if I didn’t like them, right? (Benefit 13546353 to cloth diapers!)

Let me tell you…everything I previously thought about wool is WRONG! I LOVE IT! These covers fit like a glove, we have had NO LEAKS!

The wool we’re currently using is a work-at-home mom brand called Chelory. I use her wool-in-two cover, with a night-solution insert and a wool doubler underneath. It works fantastically for us overnight!

If you already have fitteds and are just looking for wool covers to try, Sustainablebabyish (aka: Sloomb) makes very popular covers, shorties, and longies in gorgeous colors!

A bonus of the shorties and longies? They are both a cover AND pants – you don’t need an extra cover in between!

Some of you may be looking at the prices in shock, but keep in mind that you probably only need 3-4 covers, making wool a very economical choice! As long as the wool is not soiled or stinky – it doesn’t have to be washed after every wear!

Next time – how to wash your wool diapers!
