Description

These Cashmere wool nappy covers are wonderfully soft, breathable & easy to maintain. Put your inserts into the cover and then onto your baby. It also works well with Preflats underneath.
The covers can be used all day long, just change the absorbency and you’re good to go. Let it air out overnight (fresh air is best). Alternatively, you can use 2 covers alternating with each nappy change.
A simply natural, easy to change, comfortable to use cloth nappy.

Weight specifications: Please note, the weights we give here have all been tested by different caregivers and their babies!
How long a nappy fits exactly is extremely dependent on the stature of your child, the absorbency you use, and the preference of how you put the diaper on.
Most children are doing well with the OSFM cover from the very beginning, if you don’t mind a loose fit for the first few weeks – the OSFM cover will give you the most value out of your purchase.

Cashmere Wool: These wool covers are made mainly from a wool cashmere blend, which makes them incredibly soft. The fabric is felted and thickended which gives the perfect foundation for a cloth nappy, and of course many other things like apparel and baby items. You want this wool on your skin.
Our wool is carefully sourced from Tibet and Mongolia, distributed by Crose fabric which have specialized in the trade silks and woolen fabrics.

100% woven cotton: The outer of all our nappy covers is made of this 100% cotton fabric. Designed by Aussie designer Joecelyn Proust.
Jocelyn often draws inspiration from her natural environment. From observing, photographing and drawing plants and birds in her garden, she uses these natural elements to create unique designs suitable for all kind of kids apparel.

Washing your wool cover: You can machine wash your cover at a gentle wool cycle (30-40°C and low spin not more than 800rpm). Please invest in an extra wool detergent – I recommend Poppets Wool soap bar, specifically designed for washing wool and comes in 5 beautiful scents. This is also great to apply directly on the nappy if you have very soiled areas.
In the event that your cover is heavily soiled, you may prefer to hand wash it before washing in the machine – especially around the elastics.

Generally, if you prefer a handwash (not getting a full machine with wool or other reasons) you are totally fine to do so. Please don’t twist your cover. Just gently press out the water.

Lanolising your cover: You need to lanolise your cover after washing it with a detergent as soaps will mainly remove the fat (Lanolin) from your cover.
Did you know? You don’t need to initially lanolise our covers when receiving you new goodies because our wool still contains enough natural lanolin.

However, sooner or later you want to lanolise them by yourself by using the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon Lanolin
  • Some flakes of natural soap rasping or baby shampoo (we prefer Poppets Wool Wash Soap bar, which contains Lanolin – Simply rub the soap bar between your hands to emulsify).

Mix them both together in hot water to emulsify everything. You’ll get a turbid emulsion. If it does not become turbid, you need to add a little more soap, this is important because otherwise the lanolin will not be dispersed properly.

When all of the lanolin has been emulsified, there should no longer be any oily yellow spots floating on top of the water.

This goes into a large bowl of cooler water (not more than 40°C) where then your wool cover comes in. Give it a few good presses into the liquid and make sure that all of it has had good contact and is not just floating on the surface. Alternatively, you can also put something to weigh it down.
It is not necessary to leave it in for several hours, 20 minutes is sufficient.

Then fold the cover carefully and press the liquid out very gently, do not wring or twist. Alternatively, place between two towels and press out, do not rub.

DONE! You got it!
Line dry in shade afterwards.
Please note: Knitted wool garments or nappies are usually dried flat. The Cotton outer of our nappies prevent them from losing their shape, so it’s ok to line dry them.

You can lanolise 5 wool covers in a small 5L bucket with this recipe. Yes really, you need really little lanolin.

If you only lanolise ONE cover, I would also advise a little less lanolin (less than 1/2 teaspoon)
