Custom Made Wool Wraps
Recently, I was contacted by a customer who wanted me to make some more wool wraps for her. She had purchased one from me, and loved it. I forwarded her some photos, and she chose the wool to be used. I am very pleased with the finished product, as was she. It is amazing how you can take an older item and turn it into a new creation!
Little Moose Diapers Recycled Wool Wraps are made from 100% wool items. Two layers of felted, recycled wool is used to make this diaper cover bullet proof. Lastin is sewn into the legs and across the back, fully enclosed so no elastic touches your little one's skin directly. Aplix 800 is used for closure, yielding an adjustable fit.
Why wool? Wool can absorb up to 30% of it's weight in moisture. Once lanolin has been added, the wool becomes even more 'waterproof'. Lanolin also helps soften the feel of the wool. I have been amazed at the softened feel wool takes on. Contrary to what some people will tell you, wool is very breathable, allowing air to circulate in and out of the diaper and cover, providing a healthier environment for your baby's bum.
