This double-knit Merino wool nappy cover is one of the softest, warmest wool covers we have found. An excellent alternative to synthetic covers, wool soakers are naturally antibacterial and provide excellent moisture regulation. Wool wicks moisture away from the skin and can absorb up to one third of its weight in moisture and return it to the environment. Once it is prepped and ready for use, you will have no leaks at all with this wool cover, making it an excellent choice for night time.
These covers can be used over any pre-fold or fitted cloth diaper, and the rise is nice and high around the waist, so it will really fit over any type of diaper, no matter how bulky or high-fitting the diaper is. The thick double-knit wool is perfect for night time use. We love this wool cover at night and have never once had a leak! We love how high the rise is around the waist- this will keep your baby comfortable and wam at night. This soaker also covers the top portion of the baby's legs very well, which also helps to prevent leaks.

Note: This item includes nappy cover only; Baby shirt in image sold is separately.
Care: This cover should be washed before using it on a baby for the first time. Although it has been re-oiled by the manufacturer after processing, we recommend lanolizing the cover at least one time, and possibly twice, before using it to renew its ability to repel moisture. If the soaker is leaking, lanolize again. Your baby should be able to wear this all night without any leaks at all. The wool will contain leaks better and better the more it is used as it becomes slightly more felted. Wool does not soil easily and does not retain odors, so it does not need to be washed very frequently. Please refer to our Wool Care guide for more details, and don't forget your wool care products.
Sizing: These wool soakers run fairly true to size. However, many parents choose to size up to get the most out of one size. The style and fit is quite similar to that of Disana wool soaker; the main difference is the fit of the leg openings- the leg openings on the Engel soakers tend to have a less snug fit (more stretchy).
