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.

When I first opened the package I thought to my self that this must be the wrong size, it looked huge. After washing it, it did seem to maybe get slightly smaller. Once on the baby though it fits well. It fits but there is plenty of room and I know we will get a lot of use out of it before he grows out of it, Super easy to wash. It did take about a week of wearing to naturally felt in the areas needed to be leak proof, but no major messes in the process. This is my first time with wool and it has me thinking that I want to do all wool eventually. Really happy with this product.
I like the diaper covers, though am still new with them. I have not washed our prepared them in any way, so they still get damp when the little one pees. It doesn't bother me though (kind of nice to know when she's wet, actually). I'm sure they'll resist water better once they've been used a bit. They don't smell at all, even after a week.
I was hesitant to use wool at first because the different cleaning instructions intimidated me and I didn't really understand how it worked. Once I jumped in, though, it is truly a magical fabric!! I cleaned according to the Green Mountain instructions and it was so easy. We love it!
This is my first wool cover, and I love it! It’s just as described. Both absorbent and holds in the wet. It holds up great for overnight once it’s properly prepped, and been worn a little while. It’s the perfect night time solution.
Super soft and roomy wool cover, I went by the size description GMD gave because if I went with Disana’s measurements it fit too small
