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 hand washing 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. Hand wash only. Made in Germany. ADD A SINGLE USE EUCALAN WOOL WASH FOR PREPPING YOUR NEW COVER!

I always thought wool would be itchy and I thought I’d never use a wool cover on my baby’s cloths (preferring thirsties) but I decided to try one as an impulse (corona boredom’s for the win!) and I honestly really like it! It is not binding at the waist or leg. The wool is soft and never scratchy. The downside is laundering and that it takes a while to prep because air drying takes a long time (these things are seriously absorbent!). They will fit under footed onesies and you can place regular onesies on as well. I can’t imagine putting pants over these but you could if they’re loose. Overall I’m very pleased with this purchase and recommend these if you want to try wool.
I tried four covers - the Babee Greens Wool Snap Wrap, the Thirsties Duo Wrap, the Cloth-eez Wrap, and this wool cover. I like this wool cover the best, no questions. If you get it, you will probably love it.
I am always blown away by GMD's customer service. Shipped within minutes of ordering and exactly what I was expecting. I haven't used them yet but plan to prep them this week and feel confident in my ability to do so because of the thorough instructions given by GMD. Thank you.
