Listing image #756407
100 % wool nappy cover / soaker. Handknit in New Zealand. For use as the waterproof layer over an absorbent reusable nappy (not included). Or use as cute clothing, as a photo shoot prop, or as added waterproof protection over another waterproof nappy. This cover features an embroidered leaf on the bum, to show off how environmentally kind your cloth nappy cover is.

Wool is naturally antibacterial and provides excellent moisture regulation, making it a great natural alternative to synthetic nappy covers. Wool nappy covers are treated with lanolin, an oil naturally present in raw wool. The lanolin makes the wool naturally water-repellent and also reacts with urine to neutralise it.

At Diverted Creations, all my products are made from second-hand or upcycled materials. The wool used to make my nappy covers is either acquired second-hand or is left over from other projects. The light brown wool in this cover is from a wool sweater that my mom knit for my dad back in the 1970s. However, he never really wore it as it was too warm. Years later, my mom ripped the whole thing out to reclaim the yarn. It travelled all the way from Canada to NZ and now it is ready to protect your baby’s bottom!

Hip: 41 cm
Rise: 39 cm
Leg Cuff (unstretched): 19 cm

Measure your baby with their nappy on to decide which size cover you need. If in doubt, go up a size.
Hip – measure around the widest part over the nappy
Rise – measure from top of waistband at the front, between legs and back up to top of waistband at the back
Leg cuff – measure around top of legs (below the nappy)

Note: Because my nappy covers are made from a variety of different sources of wool, there is some variation in the exact size and dimensions of covers of the same size (newborn, small, medium, or large).

**Care Instructions**
Handwash and lanolise every 4 – 6 weeks. The wool cover does not need to be washed after every use, unless it has been soiled or starts to smell. If it is damp, simply leave out to air, and when it is dry it is ready to use again. When prepped with lanolin and properly cared for, wool covers should not leak at all. This cover comes lanolised and ready to use, but may need to be lanolised again to achieve full effectiveness. A guide to washing and lanolising will be included with your soaker.
