In the old days, when there were no disposable diapers, moms used wool diaper covers, which were warm, soft and gentle on the baby’s skin. The wool diaper cover was worn over a cloth diaper to keep the baby’s clothes dry.
The concept of wool diaper covers is old and well-known in various cultures all over the world. Wool diaper covers are still a perfectly feasible option in this day and age!

Also you can join a Wool Soaker Yahoo group and ask any soaker related questions. There are many experienced knitters. This talkative group loves to discuss wool soakers for use as diaper covers in all forms; knit, crochet, fabric, recycling other materials, etc... Wool is a wonderful, natural option compared to other synthetic fibers.
