Woollen diaper pants are warm and breathable. Use this as a diaper cover over an absorbent inner diaper or use as clothing.
The long-legged nappy pants are available in four different sizes. Double-layered rib knit with smooth seams. The waist can be rolled up to adjust the size. Use over an absorbent cotton diaper as a diaper cover or use as clothing.
Long legs style is especially nice because you don't need clothing over it. The diaper cover is also the clothing.
Made out of 100% certified and breathable organic merino wool. Pure wool keeps you warm even when damp, neutralizes odors and doesn’t require frequent washing. Wool with no synthetics mixed in is also a fire-resistant material that returns to nature at the end of its life cycle.
Certified and mulesing-free organic merino wool comes from Argentina and Uruguay
The merino wool used is up to seven time finer than the wool from Finnish sheep and therefore feels pleasant against skin
Wool slightly shrinks in the first wash and this has been taken into consideration in the sizing
Wool becomes slightly softer in the first wash which adds to comfort.
Made in Finland.
Use over an absorbent diaper such as Workhorse or a fastened prefold or flat diaper.
Notes from Karen: Ruskovilla nappy pants are not thick. They are trim. You can add the Ruskovilla booster to if as needed. I love these for daytime when I'm keeping up with changes, but for overnight I tend to prefer thicker wool such as Disana Wool pull-on. For trim daytime comfort though, these are fantastic. They don't restrict movement and all and the convenience of not needing clothing over this is really nice. It comes up really high on baby's ribs, gently, so there is nothing digging in to baby's tummy when baby is in the sitting position. This gives baby complete freedom of movement while still being covered enough to not get chilled. These pants don't "fall in" to the absorbent diaper inside because they come up so high. It's a very practical design and I think it's adorable.
Don't expect any wool item to act like plastic. Wool acts like wool. It is different than polyester with TPU regular covers. The cotton diaper underneath absorbs first and faster than wool. The wool resists moisture at first but then eventually will absorb. That means any overspill is taken up by the wool instead of baby's clothing or your clothing. Just change the cotton diaper underneath. Wool allows air circulation, too. It's not too hot and not too cool. It's just right. Wool is wonderful once you experience it and understand how it works. Hand wash your lovely woolies.
Is hand washing more work? Perhaps, yet I enjoy it. Wool needs washing only infrequently.
Size 50, the smallest size, 7lbs4oz 20.5 inches long at 5 days old with a no-closure fitted underneath. It keeps baby's tummy warm and cozy. Nothing binding. Pure comfort. Just like you put clothing on baby over the cord stump, you put this over the cord too in the same way as clothes. It is gentle.
You may not be used to this look - fitting up so high, but it is soft, flexible and comfortable! Forget about the pants falling in to the top of the diaper in these. These are the pants - and they don't fall in. That means that the diaper can be put on more comfortably and the whole diaper setup is so cozy. Have I mentioned the comfort? Yes, really. The freedom of movement is so good in a Ruskovilla.
This is quite trim for a woolie but really effective for how trim it is. If you want to add more wool to it, add a wool booster. Depending on what you put underneath, the booster might make it nightworthy. The booster, placed outside the cotton absorbency but inside the cover, is useful for extended carseat travel to boost the amount of wool under baby in just the right place to prevent compression moisture when you can't change baby as promptly at usual.
Size 80 in sand. Notice that you can't see the leg cuffs in this. The extra length is tucked up and under and it actually stays pretty well this way. It's a bit big right now on this baby but there is a lot of growing room in it so it will probably keep fitting for a year or more. The knit provides a very flexible and long-lasting fit.
