Wool has natural water absorption and water repellant properties. These properties allow the soaker to absorb excess moisture (approximately 1/3 of its weight) from the cloth diaper without letting it wick onto other materials. You’ll be able to feel when your baby is wet just by the feel of the cover. A wool cover will act as an insulator, keeping your baby warm during the cool months, and cool during the warmer months.
Take a chance and go back to a more natural way of cloth diapering,
no synthetic materials, and eco friendly at that!
You don’t need to worry about your baby feeling cold in a damp diaper. Wool soakers are meant
to be hand washed and air-dried, treated with a lanolin soak prior to first use and periodically with
regular wear. Don’t let the handwashing scare you, you’ll be doing it less often than you’d imagine! When treated with lanolin, soakers can be worn several times before they need washing, and work best when
you have 3-4 that you can rotate between while the others dry.When lanolin and urine interact,they form a natural salt, which, in turn, cancel each other out. The lanolin will slowly dissipate as it comes in contact with the urine,but you won’t smell a thing! Any smell can most likely be attributed to the smell of damp wool. Any solid waste should be gently scrubbed off with a mild bar soap prior to washing or treatment. More than just a cover, your baby will live in these garments!
