sloomb Underwoolies – Best Wool for Day!

Wool is amazing. It’s breathable. It’s a natural fiber. You can re-use it multiple times before having to wash it (yes, seriously, once every 2-3 weeks for washing is sufficient).

Simply put, wool is an fantastic option for a cloth diaper cover. Many folks use wool covers at night to increase air circulation and also the absorbency of their nighttime system as wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet.

But it’s just as great for daytime and we drool over the adorable sloomb underwoolies. These are a super duper trim wool cover, available in a range of fabulous colors, that nicely complements any fitted or prefold you care to place underneath.

We currently have the sloomb underwoolies in stock in birch, galinka, beeswax, fawn, ister and bloom. If these colors sound all cryptic, check out the color swatch on our product page.

Final word? Sloomb underwoolies are adorbs. No doubt about it.

WoollyBottoms Wool Soakers

Wool, wool, wool. Many parents are skeptical, if not a bit fearful when they hear the words “wool diaper cover.” We know, we you know, you might think itchy and you might think wow, that will be a lot of work.

Believe it or not, however, wool covers are easy to use and they are an amazing option. Why? First, wool is fully breathable as it is a natural fiber. This means better air circulation for baby. Second, wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet. That means a wool diaper cover can boost the absorbency of the cloth diaper system you are using. This is particularly helpful at nighttime when your little one may be sleeping for long stretches.

There is no question that the best night time solution is a fitted cloth diaper like the Sloomb Overnight Bamboo Fitted Diaper or the Sloomb Snapless Multi diaper, with a wool cover on top.

Still worried about the effort on the care side? Easy peasy. Really! All you need to do is wash it once every 2-3 weeks unless it is soiled. Just air it out between uses. When it’s time to wash, use Eucalan wool wash to quickly and easily soak it in a sink, then just roll it in a towel and lay flat to dry. You may want to add a touch of lanolin as well, but it’s not hard.

Wool diaper covers are great and if you haven’t tried them yet, you might be surprised at how much you fall in love…
