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 was so hesitant to give these a try because I felt wool would be so fussy, and I just didn't know the logistics of using wool covers because they were so far outside of my comfort zone. WHY?! Why didn't I use these with my first child?! I am in love. I initially bought one of these covers because my child was heavily wetting and is a stomach sleeper. They were still nursing several times a night, and we don't change pee diapers during dream feeds, so every morning we were dealing with very wet pajamas, and sometimes sheets. I took the plunge and have never been happier. The wool comes up so high we were able to pull them up above the "wet line" and ta-dah! No more wet pajamas! I sized up for my baby (12-24 months) because they are a little on the, uh, thicker side, hehe. But also so that these would last a long time. My husband accidentally washed and dried one, so I bought another two because I thought the washed one was ruined (I wanted to have two in rotation). It turns out, we got lucky and the first one is just *extra* felted, so now we have three. I may just end up giving one away as a gift, because these are so sturdy and so easy to use, I don't think I need more than two!
My son is about 2 months old and 13.5lbs. The cover is a little roomy on him now (as expected:). High quality wool in lagoon, beautiful color. Fast shipping.
I wish I hadn't waited so long to try these! I hesitated because of the price, but they will get so much use. I bought one for my 24lb 15 month old in the 2T/3T size, handfelted and lanolized according to the instructions sent with it. It is quite big on him so there's plenty of growing room. It leaked the first night, but I lanolized it a second time and it has worked perfectly, no leaks for a week since. I did have to use a lot more lanolin than the instructions suggest. We're using workhorse diapers with hemp doublers. I just bought a second one in the 12-24mo size, since it should fit my one-year-old now, and then I can pass it down to my younger baby when he outgrows it.
We love this cover for bedtime. Our son always wakes up comfy and dry, despite his very wet prefold underneath. We love that it gentle on his chunky inner thighs. Washing is simple and the cover is durable. Felts up nicely with use. We definitely recommend!
