Wool nappies are sustainable
With the conscious choice of wool nappies, the production of disposable nappies is drastically reduced. This means a direct impact on the environment because less energy will be used, less CO2 will be emitted, and fewer harmful products are manufactured. Until your child is potty trained you throw away approximately 4500 nappies. That is about 260 kg of waste per year.
Wool covers are seldom washed because wool has self-cleaning and antibacterial properties. After use they are aired out and properly cleaned only when they are dirty. Proper cleaning is applied every 2 to 3 weeks, depending on how many covers you use. The only thing you have to wash regularly are the absorbing inserts. They form the heart of a wool nappy and absorb the urine of your child. We use environmentally friendly organic cotton and hemp only. No chemicals. No synthetic fibres.
Good for your wallet
For the entire changing time of your child, you need a small amount of wool covers only. When your child is potty trained you can store them for the next child or sell them to other parents. Even though the investment costs are high at the beginning, you will save a lot of money in the coming months and years – and you choose consciously for a sustainable and no-waste solution. Maybe even more important you choose for a healthy childhood because you know exactly what fibres come in contact with the sensitive baby skin.
How many wool covers and absorbing inserts you need depends on two things: How often you wash and in what intervals your baby pees. We recommend starting with a minimum of 3 wool covers and 25-30 absorbing inserts. You can buy additional covers and/or inserts once you need more.
Natural materials, no plastic!
Reusable wool covers from Jovoh are made of natural materials such as merino wool from controlled organic livestock farming as well as organic cotton, linen and hemp. The fabrics are soft and without irritating chemicals. Wool nappies are sustainable alternatives to cloth nappies made of synthetic material. They do not release micro-plastics during laundry and are soft and pleasant to wear. Hence, if you want to avoid disposable nappies but also do not want to use nappies made of synthetic material, wool covers are the right choice.
Natural fibres and a fair production form the basis of Jovoh
All absorbing inserts from Jovoh are made of natural and environmentally friendly fibres: organic cotton and hemp. The fabrics are produced under regulated, sustainable, and fair conditions. Just the best for baby’s skin. And the best for our environment.
Wool is a great material
Wool is a great material for wool covers because it has several advantages over regular cloth nappies, but especially in comparison to disposable nappies:
- Wool is self-cleaning
- Wool covers need to be rarely washed
- Wool is temperature regulating and suitable during summer and winter
- Wool has antibacterial properties
- Wool is a natural material and the first choice for sensitive baby’s skin
- Wool covers must be greased with lanolin (wool fat) that gives extra care to the skin
