The package is the perfect introduction to the wonderful world of wool nappies, for beginners and experienced cloth nappy users. It contains one wool cover of your choice, lanolin for greasing, a sample bag of green olive soap flakes, and five different absorbing inserts.

The cover must be combined with absorbing inserts and greased with wool fat (lanolin) before first use to get water-repellent. It may also fit over compact absorbent nappies. The snaps are attached in such a way that they do not touch the child’s skin.

 

Materials

The outer fabric is made from stretchable (organic) cotton jersey or pure (organic) cotton. For more details see list below under “fabrics”. The cover is lined with knitted wool made of 100% organic merino wool.

 

Size guide

The wool cover is available in three sizes: Size 1 (ca. 4-7 kg), size 2 (ca. 7-12 kg) and size 3 (ca. 11-16 kg). Please note that the weight information of the sizes can only be an estimate, as the fit depends on the stature of the respective child. The type of outer fabric also makes a difference on how the nappy fit. Wool covers made from stretchable fabric tend to adapt better to the child’s stature and are suitable for stronger children. According to experience, they also fit longer than covers made from non-stretchy fabrics (e.g., pure cotton). Non-stretchy covers on the other hand are more likely to retain their shape and are recommended for slim children. If there are only a few but very absorbent inserts, wool covers made of non-stretchable fabrics are more suitable, as they give the nappy stability.

 

Possible combination of inserts

When combining absorbent inserts, there is a rule of thumb: Fast-absorbing cotton should always be in contact with the child, with hemp inserts placed underneath. Hemp absorbs more moisture than cotton, but relatively slow.

  • The cotton flat is either folded along the long side (for size 1) or along the short side (for sizes 2 and 3) and directly placed in the cover
  • For more absorbency, combine the terrycloth flat with a hemp booster underneath
  • The hemp flat is placed directly in the wool cover. Fold the insert along the long side for covers of size 1 and along the short side for covers of sizes 2 and 3. Combine it with e.g., a cotton liner or muslin nappy on top. Pure cotton quickly absorbs moisture and directs it downwards where it is stored in the hemp insert.
  • You can also place a hemp booster underneath the hemp flat to increase absorbency

 

A wool washing soap is highly recommended for minor stains. The soap contains lanolin and greases the wool directly when it is washed. In the long term, over-greasing of the wool cover is hence avoided.
