baby z has been waiting for her new hand knit wool shorties!
and quite frankly, so has her mama.
we're taking cloth diapering to a whole new level here.
frightening, i know.
but judging from the smiles here...
we just might be taking a step in the right direction!
for those of might be wondering what the benefits of a wool diaper cover might be, don't ask me!
ok, ok...i jest..
from what i've heard..
when coupled with a cotton or hemp fitted or prefold diaper
the natural fibers of wool are...
more breathable than most synthetics
provide an excellent waterproof barrier
a renewable resource
when properly lanolized...anti-bacterial
you don't have to wash the cover after every use????
( honestly...this is what made me steer clear of cloth diapering for the last ten yrs..but i'm brave enough to give it a shot since i've officially taken the leap...and been declared insane by a few unnamed persons)
