You can use lanolised wool wraps/ soakers / shorts / trousers aka longies as nappy covers.

There are some posts in the Pure Wool section that might help, like this one

Amazing. Sounds literally like magic, I might have to give it a try. Is the idea that they don't actually feel damp to touch then, they just work their woolen magic and act as a breathable barrier between nappy and clothes then. It sounds completely counter intuitive as I have images of sodden, saggy, wool pants, but I'm guessing thats not what happens at all, unless it goes really wrong.
It's a whole new world of possibilities!!!

Hi (and welcome :wave: ) they really are magic, I was a bit unsure before I started using them and now I'm a total convert. It is all I use at night and with Rémy I often use them in the day as well as I have more than I did with Louis. After a full night you do get the slightest damp feeling but not wet if that makes sense. Have a look in classifieds there are always some for sale or if you / grandma / friend can knit or crochet they are easy to make too :D
