This wool cover is the last step in the reusable cloth diaper process. It goes over the one-size fitted diaper.
It is made from two layers of Oeko Tex 100 certified merino wool ... what does that mean? It means that it has passed the globally uniform testing and certification system for all stages of textile production that requires all products to be free of harmful substances ... what does that mean? It means it's super eco-friendly and super safe for your baby's bottom!
This cover also contains natural lanolin which creates a waterproof barrier. It has a 100% cotton interfacing in the wings and front (to hold the snaps securely in place). This wool is naturally anti-bacterial and very absorbent. It is able to take in three times its weight without feeling damp, meaning it stays dry, breathable and comfortable on your little buddy's tush.
There are three rows of snaps and latex-free elastics to allow for a fit that is custom to your growing baby. The elastics are sown on the interior of the leg openings and the waist to avoid contact with skin. The only other parts of this item that contain any plastic are the tiny snaps, which also are not in direct contact with baby's skin.
This wool cover is size small and is intended to fit babies 0-6 months approximately 8-18 lbs.This cover is great to put over the one-size reusable cloth diaper to add an extra protective layer and to add a nice, natural looking external shell.
Cleaning your wool covers is simple but requires special monthly lanolin care to keep abosorbency. You may wash your wool covers in cold/room temperature water using the Washing Greens All Natural Detergent. Make sure you air or line dry them because a machine dryer will shrink them. Because the wool is water-resistant and self-cleaning, it will not need frequent laundering, but you will be able to tell when it needs a washing when the urine smell sticks around after laying it to dry.
- Do not put in the dryer.
- Do not put in hot water because it could shrink the wool.
