Why is Merino Wool a Great Choice for Diaper Covers?
Let's ask the sheep ~ it keeps them dry and happy too!
Wool is an amazing fiber. Wool has been keeping us warm or cool through all climates, all the while keeping us in style for years! The natural combination of breathability, absorbency, softness, and water-repellence are why, there is NO question merino wool is the best choice for cloth diaper covers.
Merino wool is a protein based fiber made from Keratin – natural and renewable. Fine merino wool fibers bend when touched – therefore you feel softness instead of a rough, scratchy feel. Merino is soft and luxurious ~ resembles the hand of cashmere.
Easy Care – Wool diaper covers only need to be washed once every 1-2 weeks or when soiled. Hang to dry between diaper changes!
Breathable – Wool both absorbs while resisting moisture. Keeps skin temperature regulated. Allows moisture to evaporate. Less, if any, diaper rash and wool is better for babies bottoms than plastic conventional covers or disposable diapers.
Odor resistant – Wool has natural antibacterial properties. Odors are caused by bacteria growing – no bacteria, no odor! Wool covers can be air-dried between diaper changes.
Self-Maintaining – High lanolin content in wool neutralizes the urea in urine (turns to a salt). Therefore, no odor until the lanolin becomes less.
Durable – Wool fibers can be stretched and return to original shape. Incredible comfort for babies growth and movement.
Naturally flame retardant – No need for chemical flame retardants.
Sustainable – Sheep are shorn annually.
If you have not tried a Merino wool diaper cover ~ please do!
I am really liking this wool in two set. I have now lanolized the wool cover three times. I've noticed a cumulative effect and now I think I've gotten it to it's full moisture resistancy.
I was a little intimidated by the lanolizing process at first, but it's cake. Really easy.
I find myself using wool most at night and might get up midway and change the soaker, but the wool lasts the night through. Then in the morning I hang the wool to dry and it's ready to use again that night. Love it and am going to invest in more wool.
Natural materials are just better - they allow breathability, & loft like no synthetic can. I feel good about natural fibers being contact with my baby's skin, where as any time there are synthetics, I have to worry a bit. With Tidbit Couture, there is no worry :)
So yeah, I highly recommend this system. It's versatile - it comes with a snap in soaker & doubler, but you can use with a fitted or prefold and use any doubler with the wool cover, and the same with the soaker & double - you can use it with any other cover. That makes it nice.
Comes in nice colors. The wool cover is merino wool interlock & the soaker insert and doubler is organic cotton velour. Nice and soft :)
