I finally started listing my wool pants in my Etsy shop! They are made from recycled 100% wool sweaters and are perfect for these cold winter days! They are awesome just as pants, or I can lanolize them at no charge for you to make them into cloth diaper covers, or "longies".
Wool pants make great diaper covers as they are a natural fiber and breathable. They really don't require that much extra care. I was hesitant to try out wool covers on my own daughter, until someone gave me a beautiful pair of hand knit longies. I had to try them and now I love all things wool! I only wash mine once a month or so unless they become soiled (usually from Laina spilling yogurt or something on them). Just stir a squirt of baby wash and a squirt of pure lanolin in a small cup of hot water (I just use the leftover PureLan that I have from my breastfeeding days). The soap and lanolin will melt and mix and become milky looking. Fill a sink or small wash tub with luke warm water and then mix in the lanolin mixture. Gently dunk in the wool longies (or shorties or whatever) and squeeze the water through a few times. Then let sit for several hours. After soaking, gently squeeze out excess water with your hands, then roll in a towel to get the rest. I usually hang the towel up on a towel bar and lay the longies over that to finish drying. It will take overnight or sometimes even longer to completely dry.
The extra care is so worth it! Whenever Laina is looking a little rashy, I make sure to put her in wool and it does help her bum air out and clear up. Check it out for yourself - you'll be glad you did!
