Question To-Be mama a little confused about wool...

Hi Ladies!

Planning on getting pregnant within the next couple of months with baby #1 and I'm sold on cloth diapering!
So I see a lot of wool covers going over flats and perfolds...does the wool act like a snap PUL cover would? or do you have to put a cover over the wool? Might be a silly question...
Can someone clarify that for me? Thanks so much!

PS, what does "bump" mean?! haha

Yes, wool is the cover. If you care for your wool appropriately it can be insanely effective as a waterproof material. "bump" is how you get a thread or post bumped up closer to the top of the list in that topic.

There are lots of online resources to help you learn about wool covers, and tutorials/videos on how to care for wool.

A few places to start might be:

An overview of the different types of covers and their differences:

Woollybottoms, an online company that makes wool covers, has a short FAQ makes it wool seem so simple to use (and it really is):

For some visuals, Little Spruce Organics, an online shop, made YouTube videos of the covers they sell and demonstrate how to wash and lanolize wool:

Best of luck! I wish I had tried wool earlier in my CDing journey...it's so easy, soft, and natural.

I too am looking into wool covers. Is there any difference between the high-end brands like Sustainablebabyish and knitting them or sewing them yourself?

I make some of my own covers, but until you've tried a couple it would be hard to figure out what sizes/shapes/patterns work best. Also, I crocheted my first wool soaker this week and am excited to see how it holds up compared to my wool jersey or wool crepe wraps!
