Why use wool?

With all the cloth diapering options out there, why would someone choose to use wool as a diaper cover? Wool diaper covers are ideal for use over cloth diapers. Not only does wool breathe, allowing baby's skin to stay dry and healthy, but wool has natural anti microbial properties, sheds dirt and is easy to keep clean. This reduces the risk of diaper rash.

Wool is a very absorbent fiber, capable of holding 30 percent of its weight in moisture. It breathes as moisture is pulled away from the body and released into the air, making wool comfortable to wear in both warm or cold weather. Many other diaper covers simply lock in the moisture against your little one's skin.
