Wonderful World of Wool Event: Day 2

Wonderful World of Wool Event
Day 2

Welcome to day two of our wool event!I hope the first day's article proved to be informative for all who read it! Today I would like to introduce another wool company, White Elephants.

White Elephants is run by a wonderful WAHM named Lynn. I first came across her shop on Facebook, and I was instantly in love with the fact that she upcycles old sweaters to make her wool soakers. Talk about eco-friendly! She has a whole album on her Facebook with different colors and prints of wool to choose from.
The first wool soaker I received was better than I had even pictured in my mind. To be honest, I pictured what an upcycled wool cover would like if I made it. Something like this:

What I received was this:
As you can see the seams are to the sides of the soaker rather than right up the middle like with mine. I liked how it didn't change the pattern of the soaker. Also, I like the dark purple trim! I think it gives it almost a Pull-up feel. That should prove helpful with potty training right around the corner!
The wool soaker from White Elephants was ready to wear right out of the packaging, she even wore it overnight with no leaks! Personally, fitteds with wool covers are my favorite diapering option and for my heavy wetter. They are perfect for anytime! I currently have several wool covers including ones I have made and two from White Elephants. Check out this one that we just received in the mail yesterday!! With a clover on the bum just in time for St. Patty's day!

As you probably read in Day 1's post, wool covers are just that, covers. When measuring your baby to order a wool cover, you should measure them with a fitted diaper on. That way you can be sure that the cover will fit over it.
Don't have any fitteds? You have several options. You can buy fitteds from any great WAHM shop {check out mine and Nikki's shop Modified Momma Creations}. Or you can put something together yourself, many cloth diaper moms have prefolds with a snappi or pins.
Another alternative I use when I've run out of fitteds for my daughter is gDiapers. If you remove the snap in plastic liner and replace it with an insert [or two for extra absorbancy!], you have just made a fitted diaper!
