I am a cloth diapering mama to a smiley toddler boy who inspires me every day. I LOVE making cute recycled wool clothing and cloth diaper covers for babies and toddlers. I pick high quality materials that I just love to touch and squish over and over again as the creativity sparks in my head. I hope your baby enjoys wearing these pieces as much as I've enjoyed creating and making them.

I have additional feedback on diaperswappers:

Additional policies and FAQs
I always recommend using a tape measure to measure your child for fit. A lot depends on what diaper you use underneath (bulkier diapers will require more rise). Additionally, because each item I make is one of a kind, some will run bigger and others will run smaller. In general, stretchier materials will fit for a longer period of time. But as a general guideline for average sizes for relatively stretchy materials (improved October 2010):
NB: 0-3 months
Small: 3-9 months
Medium: 9-18 months
Medium-Long: 15+ months (for a longer skinny build)
Large: 17 months+ (for a more average/stocky build)
Wool (or cashmere, angora) as a Cloth Diaper Cover:

Wool is a natural and breathable material. It keeps you cool in summer, and warm in the winter. It also has wonderful anti-bacterial properties, and stays smelling fresh after many uses as a cloth diaper cover. How does it do this? Wool absorbs an oil called lanolin, which reacts with urine to create a soap. As long as the diaper cover doesn't get dirty, you only need to wash about once every ~2-4 weeks. We have easily gone over a month without washing, but a lot depends on how wet the diaper gets underneath the wool, and how many covers you have in rotation.

How to wash and lanolize wool:
1. soak the woolie in tepid or warm water. Make sure it is fully wet.
2. Add wool wash (or use a wool wash bar and suds it in your hands, pressing the suds into the wool). You can spot clean with the wool wash bar as well.
3. Soak 15 minutes, then squeeze out the water, roll in a towel (or spin out in washer), lay flat to dry.

Now, you don't have to lanolize every time you wash. But, I tend to lanolize when I wash, since the wool is already wet!

1. Turn your woolie inside-out. Soak your woolie in tepid water. Make sure it absorbs water completely.
2. In a separate container, take a dab of 100% pure lanolin, dissolved in hot water with a drop of baby shampoo (or Eucalan). Dissolve it really well (mix or shake), then add this to a basin where your wool item is soaking.
3. Soak for 15-30 minutes. Squeeze out the water, roll in a towel (or spin in the washer) and lay flat to dry.
We are a smoke-free cat-friendly household. Although the cats are not allowed in the sewing room, I cannot guarantee the items to be completely free of cat allergens. I lint-roll the items to remove any possible hairs or lint (often times, angora sweaters can shed some fibers), but at the end of the day, I'm only human!
