So my love affair with wool has not ended. I’ve gone back and forth with it. Summers are obviously not great for longies (which are my favorite style!). And some covers just are too bulky under the slim line pants out there for baby boys these days (which is why you have to check out these pants for cloth diapers!).
Now I think I’ve finally found the exact cover I’ve wanted for my wool diaper covers: the Red Barn Cloth Diaper Woolie Wrap (which Jeni sent me for my review).
My favorite feature is that it’s a WRAP! Yes, instead of the bulkier pull-on style, this wool diaper cover “wraps” around just like most other diaper covers, and snaps on.
Plus, it’s a one-size wool diaper cover – which, I think is not that common in wool diapering. It’s made to fit babies from 7-35 pounds. The soft elastic leg bands really stretch to accommodate a range of sizes, and the snaps around the waist size up or down dramatically.
The Woolie Wrap is made from two layers of wool for extra dryness and protection. The inner is, as Red Barn says, “buttery soft,” and it’s so true. That’s because it’s made from 100% Organic Wool Interlock.
The outer layer is handpicked up-cycled wool (80%+ wool with remainder another natural fiber). Honestly I have seen (and love) a lot of upcycled wool diaper covers, but often you can tell that the wool is from an old sweater (not in a bad way, you can just tell). However, I really looked at this diaper cover and I could NOT tell that it was upcycled wool – it looks and feels of brand new quality.
But I will tell you these are rather affordable as far as wool diaper covers go: $26.50 is pretty good when you consider a lot of wool covers are over $30. And considering these are handmade, no-two-alike wool diaper covers, you’re getting a great product at a great price. (If you still think that’s a lot to pay for a diaper cover, read this post).
As for what to put under a Woolie Wrap? That’s up to you, but my choice would be the amazing Heavy Doody Fitted Diaper or a Red Barn Nifty Nappy! In fact, I’ve reviewed both of these Red Barn Cloth Diaper products over the years:
Do you use wool diaper covers, or are you curious about trying out wool diapering?
I’m really excited to have Red Barn Cloth Diapers as a sponsor of my blog during A Merry Fluffy Christmas (two days!). Be on the lookout to win a Woolie Wrap in my big prize package!!
Thanks to Red Barn Cloth Diapers for sending a Woolie Wrap for review. All opinions are my own.
