Sustainablebabyish Knit Wool Cover

Wool. YIKES! A lot of us have ZERO experience with wool but are so tempted to try it out. But where in the world do you start? I had no idea what to do with wool when I was given the opportunity to review a wool cover. And not just any wool cover but a very popular Sustainablebabyish (SB) wool cover from Natural Family Supplies. Nicole sent me this brown cover to try out.

This is the first wool I have ever owned. Wool requires lanolizing which takes some time (at least for me) to figure out. I will have a post up soon all about wool and the what nots and how toos!
Here is the cover on my little guy. I love how soft this cover it. The quality of it is great as well. After using it it has held up and I haven't noticed any piling of the material or snagged strings etc.
Depending on what you put under it will really determine how bulky it will be. If you do a prefold with a snappi under it it will be more trim but you might also want something that is more absorbent like a thicker fitted to help prevent the wool from getting wet. This happened to me the first couple of times.
The fit on my little guy was great. The legs were nice and snug but not tight. Never left any red marks. The waist was just right as well. With this cover no matter how bulky your fitteds or prefolds are it won't affect the waist and leg openings as far as them gaping away from the body allowing leaking. You can see in the picture below that there is room for a thicker item to go under the cover.
My thoughts on this cover:
I really liked this cover. It is so soft and definitely great quality. It had a great fit with room to grow. The colors you can get this wool cover in are so pretty. I had a hard time picking out one that I like! I wanted the purple one but I didn't think that would be a good choice for my boys...maybe some day. This cover did take about 24-36 hours to dry after lanolizing. I also had to wait a few times in between changes to use this because the inside of it got wet. I think once I got it figured wool figured out a little better I was able to use the cover for a longer period of time.

My thoughts on Wool in general:
To be honest, trying to figure out what to do with a wool cover worried me...A LOT! What in the world do you have to do to keep it with as far as lanolizing. I emailed numerous people asking for tips and advise. I finally went ahead and lanolized the cover. Completely nervous as I stood next to the sink waiting to see what would happen. I then took it out and rolled it in a towel and laid it flat on my dryer to air dry. That was a very long day and a half of waiting, anticipating and worrying! Then after having the cover leak through after not that long of a time on my son I was so bummed and confused and had no idea what to do. So I sent out some more emails and was told to try a few different things. I eventually found the best solution for us and am able to use the cover with out much problems. For me, a newbie to wool, this was a great experience to have. (Thanks Nicole from NFS!)

I was not paid to do this review. I received the cover free and the opinions are of my own.
