The new batch of Wool Longies is arriving in the next 2 weeks! They are hand made by recycled wool and as usual, extremely soft for your baby.

Kate of Poverty Jane

Posted on Friday, January 1, 2010 in Cloth Diaper

Im a FULL FULL time mommy and milk maker and loving wife to 5 wonderful boys and 1 neato little girl and one extremely wonderful man. Our oldest (14) to the youngest (1).
My husband and I have a very simple life philosophy, and that is to get back to basics as much as we can. We live, and are currently developing as many features as we can, to live completely off the land. We own a wood boiler for heat in the home, pump water from our well, we use solar power to run electricity and have an enormous garden filled with heirloom plants and currently working towards an all year around greenhouse. We hunt for our meat and raise our own livestock and harvest our own eggs and hang our laundry in the sun to dry. Not to mention my husband mills all the wood we need to create all these projects on our mill from the trees that grow on our land! He has been working on many things, but trying to finish our 150 year old barn conversion that we call “home”. We are looking into a greenhouse and making a root cellar. Its fun! But lots of work! And its work that we have happily chosen to do because we believe in a way of life that is completely disappearing from our existence. (more…)

Woolen Diaper Covers – Jeannette Almstrøm

Posted on Saturday, December 26, 2009 in Cloth Diaper

When I gave birth to my second child twenty years ago, I was given a present that struck me as quite odd. I had one year earlier moved from Sweden to Denmark, and, as a nurse at that time, had no knowledge of anything other than disposable diapers. We were all so engrossed in the “use-and-throw-away” mentality.

The gift I received was a woolen panty, knitted by my grandmotherly neighbor, for my baby. (more…)

Wool, Fleece or Pul Cover

Posted on Friday, December 25, 2009 in Cloth Diaper

Wool

Natural wool material is absolutely amazing. Wool can absorb liquid  up to 30% of its own weight before it will start leaking through, so it is an absolute great diaper cover cum soaker. Some wool pants have double layers which would give added protection for babies who are heavy wetter. Wool is extremely breathable and how do we know that? Just pull the frabic and you can see through the wool from the holes on it. Using a breathable diaper cover keeps the temperature lower inside the diaper, which is more comfortable for the child and reduces diaper rash issues. (more…)

Wool Care

Posted on Friday, December 25, 2009 in Cloth Diaper

Caring for your wool covers

Hand wash in a sink full of warm water (not too hot, it will shrink your wool) with 1 tablespoon of your favorite wool wash (amounts vary by brand, read your wool wash directions carefully). Gently massage water/soap solution through the cover. Empty the soapy water then refill with fresh warm water and gently massage /rinse the cover. Gently squeeze out the water without twisting (wringing) the cover and roll it up in towel. Apply some pressure to squeeze the excess water out and then lay flat to dry or hang to dry. (more…)
