About

I was Bitten by the Diaper Bug!

I was put on medical bedrest shortly after becoming pregnant with my fourth child. As the weeks turned to months, I found myself in need of a hobby. I wanted to make something for my coming child, but I was tired of the usual hats, blankets, and sweaters. Then I learned that you could make a cloth diaper cover out of wool. What? I was beyond intrigued. I had already made my daughter some cloth diapers and washcloths, but that required sitting at a sewing machine -- a definite no-no in my condition. This was something I could do while laying down.

I tried several different brands of yarn and every free pattern that I could get my hands on, including a few that I drafted myself. I changed tensions and hook sizes and took measurements against the cloth diaper covers that I already had (none of which were wool). And all the while, I knew that it was all guesswork because I wouldn't really know how well things fit until I could try them onto my baby.

After the baby was born, I became impressed by just how well the wool covers worked for us. They quickly became my favorites, and I all but stopped using my plastic covers entirely. I wished, more than anything, that I had known about wool covers while pregnant with baby #1 instead of #4. How could I get the word out? I showed my cool cloth diapers to all of my friends, offered to make some for my sister-in-law, chatted with complete strangers at the park. I was officially obsessed.

I knew that I really wanted to share my new found love of wool with people beyond my immediate community. However, due to my husband's military involvement and the needs of a growing young family, the timing really wasn't quite right until now. Fortunately, that gave me plenty of time to continue testing my products on my son to find out what works well and what does not.

I am so happy to be here, and hope to connect with other moms who care about the environment, sustainability, and adorable mini fashions!

    I became involved in the natural birthing community in 2009. Soon after, I discovered the wonder of wool diaper covers. I found this art form to be particularly fascinating. I want to share the joys of cloth diapering with the world!
