No sweaty vinyl here. Many babies find wool soothing. It's not cold to the touch like vinyl and polyurethane foam pads. Use this over your current pad. Then put a prefold down under the diaper area just in case of messes to help keep the wool clean. Some babies might cry less when placed on a wool pad for changing. All of my (Karen's) babies always preferred wool so I'm a big fan of using wool on the changing surface.

Don't want any synthetics on your changing area? Use what you already own instead of buying a foam and vinyl thing. Fold up some large towels for padding and use this wool pad over the towels for a squishy, water-resistant and comfy natural fabric changing station. This pad has some softness to it but it is meant to be used over something else for increased cushioning. You can fold the towels so the sides are higher than center to create a cozy changing spot.
Care: Hand wash using a proper wool wash (not a harsh detergent). We recommend Eucalan but there are several good brands of wool wash out there. Do not iron. Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry. Do not sun. Wool does not like heat of the dryer which will felt it. Some shedding is expected for new wool. Some shrinking, felting and pilling is normal for soft merino wool and it is the normal nature of wool to have variations in color. These are not defects. This is part of the natural beauty and the nature of merino wool.
Wool does not need to be washed often.
