I’m not gonna lie. I was terrified to try wool. Fleece was a lot less scary, but still…PUL seemed easiest. Don’t get me wrong, my Flip covers paired with fitted worked great. I was even able to use pocket diapers with one charcoal bamboo insert for overnight. I let my girl roam coverless in her fitteds during the day and change her when she feels damp. But no matter what I did, I kept running across wool and fleece for sale. I half way bit the bullet and bought some fleece (that took FOREVER to arrive) and it sat there. Next I made a tentative post about wool and my fears of lanolizing and care. Multiple people squashed the idea of it being hard. I was started to be swayed…
Then I saw some for sale posts on my local swap page. And I went for it.
I LOVE IT!
I have had Mo-Mo in various fitteds (including a LFP night time diaper which I SWEAR needs no cover!) and put her in both the wool and the fleece. It is amazing! And it works!
The material is so breathable I know her little bum isn’t being suffocated in these. She would have little rashes with her disposables after using them at night. I spray her with CJs BUTTer in Blueberry Crumble or Lavender and Tea Tree Oil throughout the day and at night and she hasn’t had a single rash.
She wore her pink fleece with her Sbish Medium Fitted when we went out yesterday and again, dry as a bone! I am so happy I decided to switch over to wool and fleece. Not to mention it barely cost me a thing as I sold my Flips and a few other covers to fund my new wool and fleece habit!
I’m actually excited to lanolize my wool and use the CJs Wool Refresher Spray!. I have a wool wash with lanolin and I found my Lanisoh lanolin so I’m pretty set for a long time on my wool care supplies. This is going to be so much fun!
