The navy blue wool in this woolie wrap features a wide grey stripe on the back. Grey snaps grace the front of this diaper cover.
Two full layers of wool throughout make this Nifty Nappy™ Woolie Wrap a great day or night diaper cover. This wool wrap cloth diaper cover adjusts to fit babies from size 7 pounds to 35+ pounds. Sustainable and eco-friendly upcycled wool pairs with OEKA-TEK certified merino wool interlock with 5% lycra for stretch to make this a bomb-proof diaper cover.
This Nifty Nappy™ Woolie Wrap was made by me under license with Nifty Nappy™. It is a one-size-fits-all cover that snaps on instead of pulling on. The inner layer is a 95% merino wool/5% lycra interlock that has not been felted. The outer layer is an upcycled wool that has been very lightly felted. This cover features elastic casings along the legs and back opening for comfortable and secure coverage. With 4 snaps on each wing, there are many snapping positions for the perfect fit on a wide range of body types and diapers.
SIZE: 7-35 pounds. This runs true to size. You won't have to buy as many covers, and you can use these for subsequent kids or sell them when you are done with them!
CARE: These come pre-washed in a lanolin-enriched wool wash, and I will include care instructions upon shipping. Hand wash and lay to dry. For a video on how to lanolize, check out this Nifty Nappy™ link:
Please note: these brighter wool colors may bleed dye. I have washed the wool on hot to pre-felt it. I recommend washing and lanolizing separately from other covers until you don't see bleeding. If the dye effects your diapers, you can spray lemon juice on them and hang them in the sun (repeat if necessary). When washing/lanolizing, I have the best results by minimizing the amount of squeezing. Use your washing machine to spin the water out and hang to dry. Don't overly agitate the covers while washing them.
WHY? I think wool is better for baby, better for mama, and better for the earth: It is breathable, easy to care for, and a sustainable, non-petroleum based material.
HOW? How can wool be a diaper cover? Wool can absorb a ton of moisture (30% of its weight) and not feel wet to the touch. It is naturally antimicrobial. Urine is neutralized by the natural oil in the wool, so it doesn't retain any odors like plastic! You don't need to wash it after each wear: simply hang to dry or use again. Less work for mama! Less water usage too!

WHAT'S THE LAST PHOTO FOR? That's me, dropping off your package at the post office. Usually I have all three of my kids in it. I use my cargo trike as much as possible to keep my business green! (Trips to the laundromat, trips to the thrift store, trips to Home Depot, etc.)
