Why wool? Wool is breathable. This cover is a favorite at nighttime because once prepared it virtually never leaks. The wool is totally untreated and is naturally antibacterial thus doesn't retain odors. Is wool itchy? Commercial wool can be, but this wool is untreated and wonderfully soft. Don't be afraid to try wool! This style has been loved for generations because it is so effective. The 2 layer double knit stretches for a gentle and comfortable fit over a very wide size range. A must for the family bed! Nighttime heavy wetter? This is the answer. It's cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Yes, really! That's because it's so breathable. Wool does need to be hand washed, and occasional lanolization is helpful. But washing is needed only very infrequently, sometimes only once a month. Wool airs out to fresh easily.

It was called Demeter Certified Organic, which is the highest of pure standards. Those standards are still maintained for beautiful Disana wools. Disana is a wonderful family business located in Germany, dedicated for 2 generations to organic wools and cottons, long before "organic" became a "thing". These are positively beautiful covers. It is knitted wool. We like the nice long legs this has. No leg gaps with this one! Once fully broken in, the performance is great. Once prepared, I have never, ever had a leak from one! I think this is the only cover I can can say that about, under even my kiddo's hard and deliberate testing - pushing diapers and covers to their limits. It might be too small in the legs on extremely chubby legs. It is designed to shrink some, and should be prepared by handwashing and felting somewhat (shrunk a bit) before first use. Never machine wash this cover. Do not put it in the dryer. Gently hand wash only. Be sure to add the free How-To Booklet to your cart which has instructions on how to prepare them for use. It is normal and expected for the very fine merino wool to pill with use because it is very soft wool. It's OK to size up if you are in the upper end of the weight ranges that we suggest as they do shrink. Handwash only. Made in Germany.
New colors Lagoon and Bordeaux.

I'll be using this purchase for my new baby arriving in February so I can't review how the baby will like it, but it arrived quickly and seems like such beautiful quality!
I love this cover. My first one accidentally went into the laundry, so I immediately bought another. I got the 62-68 for my newborn son who was 8 lbs 6 ounces. It was a little big but so cute. I go between this and my babee greens wool snap wrap, and I use them over prefolds and workhorses. This is my first baby, but it seems like he pees A LOT, and while the cover sometimes gets a little "humid" if I wait awhile, it has never leaked and airs out nicely. I plan on getting the next size up when he grows out of this one, especially because they are so reasonably priced for a wool cover. I want more colors too, but I'm trying to restrain myself.
We love it. So much softer than the plastic versions of diapers. Easier on baby's skin and easier on us! Smells nice still when wet. I want to find a long legged version next.
