Engel Organic Merino Virgin Wool Nappy Pants

Engel
$15.95 - $16.95

If you love wool but want something a little less bulky than a thick wool soaker during the day, you will love these nappy pants!  These are the thinnest, most lightweight wool diaper covers we have found, and they work wonderfully well.  These breathable wool shorts are so trim that you can fit any garment over them with hardly any bulk at all.  They are trim but still have the absorbency and moisture-repelling properties of wool.   

This merino wool cover is very thin, lightweight and single-knit, so it is ideal for daytime use and is great for hot summer days.  This cover fits nicely over any pre-fold or fitted cloth diaper.  

To see this wool cover on a baby, you can view our video demonstration here.   For additional details on the nappy pants, you can read our blog post here

Because this is a single knit, thin wool cover, we do not recommend using this during naps or overnight.  You will need to change the cover more frequently than you would with a thick, double-knit wool cover.  This particular cover is not designed for night time or nap time use, but rather for daytime use and times when you are able to change your baby's diaper on a regular basis.  Please keep in mind that wool is not waterproof like synthetic covers, but it is extremely absorbent and contains lanolin, which naturally repels moisture.   This cover will stay dry longer the thicker and more absorbent the cloth diaper layer is underneath.   

Wool provides excellent moisture regulation; it wicks moisture away from the skin and can absorb up to one third of its weight in moisture and return it to the environment.  In addition, it does not soil or retain odors easily, so it does not need to be washed very frequently.    

Made by Engel, these nappy covers are 100% organic virgin Merino wool, certified organic by the International Association of Natural Textile Industry (IVN) and the Global Organic Textile Standard.  This wool is finely crimped, does not itch, and feels soft and cozy against baby's sensitive skin.  The Merino sheep are organically raised without the use of pesticides on neither the pastures nor the animals.    

Made in Germany 

Other Details: 

Care:  This wool cover should be washed before being used on a baby for the first time.  Although it has been re-oiled by the manufacturer after processing, we also recommend lanolizing the the wool before using to renew its moisture-repelling capability.  If your nappy pants leak, lanolize again.  Wool garments are naturally antibacterial and do not retain dirt or odors quickly, so you do not need to wash this garment frequently.  Please refer to our Wool Care section for more details, and don't forget your wool care products!

Sizing: The nappy pants run fairly true to size, but the wool is stretchy, so many babies can wear each size for much longer than the age range indicated.  Please see measurements below. 

Size 74/80 (6-12 mo):  Waist: 15" (at rest); 23" (stretched);  Rise: 7"

Size 86/92 (12-24 mo):  Waist: 16" (at rest); 25" (stretched) ;  Rise: 8"

Great underwear for toddler

Works great as underwear for my 2.5 year old daughter. Even at this great price it's a bit pricey for undies. But dang it sure is cute as underwear. We will have to make do with one! If you own this cover hang on to it for once your babe is out of diapers.

GREAT FOR DAYTIME USE

Ordered one of these and need to get at least one and maybe two more. I LOVE THESE. We only exclusively used disana wool soakers before this which are also quite nice but they are SO bulky under clothes. On the other hand, these are incredibly thin and effective. I lanolized these thoroughly before using. I was surprised at how well they worked. Make sure to measure your baby when you get these to ensure your getting the proper size. Thank you LSO for another great product!

Nice and Trim

I have several wool covers and having a trim cover is a really nice addition. This is the trimmest wool cover that I have and I really do like it. I like that it is not bulky and that it is easier to put on my baby than other pull on covers because of how thin it is. I also love that it dries fast. On the other hand, since this cover is super thin (you can see through it) you have to lanolinize it several times before you first use it and have to to change your baby sooner than you would with other covers. I don't find this to be an issue since I usually change my baby as soon as he eliminates. My only complaints with this cover are that the area between the legs is not as wide as I would like and that my cover is already looking dingy after one month use. I only use this cover at home with no clothes over it and I can see that the cover does not always cover the diaper completely between the legs. I don't find it to be wide enough, but it does cover high rise diapers. Also, I found that the leg holes can be stretchy. If your baby has a poop explosion, I wouldn't count on this cover keeping it in. I don't use this cover if I am expecting my baby to poop. This isn't a cover you can size up so order the size that your baby is in. I almost sized up, but accidentally didn't and I am glad that I did not size up. Overall, I really do like this cover.
