The World of Wool: Potty Training Edition

In my last post, I mentioned that we are no longer using cloth diapers. However, I did hang on to the majority of our wool shorties because they’re great for added protection over undies while in the potty training phase. (Plus, they’re so pretty!)

There are many different brands of wool in various price ranges, but there are two brands that I like more than others. For knits, my favorite is Sloomb, and for interlock, I prefer Wild Coconut Wear.

So, what’s the difference between knits and interlock?

Knits are softer and more delicate than interlock. They must be handwashed and lanolized, and can be easily felted if not cared for properly. Most people in the wool community consider felting to be a bad thing, but some moms prefer it because it’s denser and more absorbent, therefore “bulletproof” when it comes to leaks.

Interlock is generally felted before hand, which makes it very durable, while still being relatively soft and stretchy. It can be washed by hand, or in the washing machine on a wool cycle.

I love the softness of knits, but I do find myself reaching for interlock more often with a toddler!

If you’re child is in the beginning stages of potty training, you will need something more absorbent than regular underwear between them and the wool, like Super Undies training pants. For more experienced potty-ers, wool shorties can be worn directly over underwear to catch small leaks and protect your floor/bed/couch. The stretchiness of the wool makes it easy for a toddler to pull them up and down themselves, as opposed to pants with snaps, buttons, and zippers.
