"Amazingly soft and perfect fit for my LO. The covers dried much faster than regular wool soakers and the sherpa diapers came out dry and fluffy in just one dryer cycle!
I don't have a single thing I would like to change about these."
You know that feeling when you have something so wonderful and game-changing to share with the world that you can hardly contain it? That's how we feel about wool! Wool is an incredible diapering material because it is both moisture repellant and moisture absorbent.
Confused? Let me explain - Merino wool is a unique fiber that repels liquid moisture because of the way the scales of the fiber overlap one-another. The repellant effect is enhanced by the use of lanolin. At the same time, merino wool absorbs water vapor, for example, the moisture evaporating away from a wet diaper, into its core and holds it there. This keeps skin dry and comfortable. Merino wool can absorb up to 35% of its own weight before it even begins to feel damp! Compare that to cotton, which can absorb 24% of it's weight and synthetics (yuck) which can only absorb 1% of their weight.
This is why wool is truly nature's perfect material for diapering and clothing children!
