Organic merino wool

The wool covers are lined with 100% organic merino wool that is obtained from organic animal husbandry and is mulesing-free. Mulesing is a painful method to protect sheep against fly infestation, which is not applied in organic farming. Merino wool is very soft and cosy, and holds reliably tight after is has been greased with lanolin.

The choice of organic wool is self-evident – for the protection of the animals and their well-being”

Wool is a great material for cloth nappies because it is not only a natural product on baby’s skin, but it also has self-cleaning, temperature regulating, and antibacterial properties. In addition, wool rarely needs to be washed and it is usually sufficient to air the cover out – thus doing much less work as generally assumed.

What is the difference between the wool types?

The covers are available with three different wool fabrics: organic knitted wool, organic wool fleece, and organic fine boiled wool. All wool types come from organic animal husbandry where no mulesing is used.

Fine boiled wool is a little roughened and pre-compressed, but cosy and soft at the same time. Compared to common boiled wool, the fabric is very thin and makes a slim nappy. The fabric basically combines the properties of wool knit and wool fleece: soft and supple, thin but reliably dense. The fabric is less sensitive to cleaning than wool fleece and knitted wool, as this is specifically felted in the factory. Fine boiled wool is available in the following colours: natural and grey.

Knitted wool is probably the type of wool you come across most often for wool nappies. The wool makes a slim nappy and is very flexible, especially in combination with stretchy cotton or wool fabrics on the outside of the cover. It is hence the best option if you are looking for a flexible and slim nappy. It fits well over thicker basic nappies.

Wool fleece is wonderfully soft, more voluminous than knitted wool, but very tight. After several washes and greases, the cover becomes considerably slimmer as they compress – yet the wool remains soft and comfortable. Besides, it also dries quickly. Wool covers made of fleece are therefore perfect for children who pee a lot as they can easily cope with longer changing intervals and are therefore recommended at night. Wool fleece is available in the colours: natural and grey

No matter which wool type you choose it will be the right one
