Good, old-fashioned wool is one of the most natural and breathable materials available for making diaper covers. Wool has made a huge comeback as a ‘performance fabric’ in recent years and for great reasons! Wool naturally resists bacteria growth, and when it is lanolized, it is incredibly water-resistant—like a sheep standing out in a rainstorm! Wool items do need special care during laundry time, like washing by hand to maintain their shape and lanolizing treatments to maintain their water-resistant properties, but families that have taken the leap into wool diapering often find the breathability and comfort of this textile to be worth the extra trouble. Sometimes a wool cover paired with a super-absorbent fitted diaper can make all the difference for a rash-prone baby—and this combination can be an awesome choice for cloth diapering at night.
