Back to Zero waste

Wool cover “Zero waste”


The ‘zero waste’ wool cover is made from small pieces of fabric that are left over from cutting and sewing other products. The use of these fabrics therefore offers the opportunity to work sustainably, which is right at the heart of Jovoh.

The wool cover is a special combination of high quality organic merino wool and (organic) cotton. Just like the 100% wool cover, it has a double layer of wool in the central “wet” area and around the leg cuffs where leakage is more likely to occur. Thanks to the two layers of wool, the nappies can withstand longer changing intervals and are therefore suitable for use at night or when travelling. They are also recommended when the child is carried in a sling. The pressure applied on the nappy can push the moisture through the wool cover. An additional layer of wool can work wonders here. The wool is combined with beautiful cotton fabric at the upper part.


How to order a zero-waste wool cover

We use the standard natural wool knit for the central part of the outer layer and for the lining. The cotton fabric can be chosen from the drop-down menu below. Choose “Other fabric” if the one you want is not listed and leave a note during checkout.


Materials and general notes

The wool comes from European mulesing-free and organic livestock farming, and is span under fair conditions in Germany. It is dyed with vegetable dyes. The main dyes used are madder root, mignonette, indigo, yellowwood, logwood, and redwood. A wonderfully natural fabric whose components are sustainably obtained and processed. Wool nappies made of pure wool are soft, stretchable, and extra tight due to the two layers of wool.

The wool cover must be greased with wool fat (lanolin) before first use to get water-repellent. It must further be combined with absorbing inserts (e.g., cotton flat, hemp flat, or muslin cloth) to form a complete nappy.

The wool cover is available in the following 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. For more information about the different sizes and the system in general see “The Jovoh system“.
