Knitted Wool Soaker

Ta-daaaa... so here is the product from the wool yarn I bought from Aussie last month. Don't praise me as I'm not the one who complete the knitting, credits to MIL. She is now hook back knitting after so many years never knit. She even completed a few handphone covers too. I just did maybe 20% only... my progress is very slow. New knitter but gaining experience.

This is a diaper cover for fitted diaper (another modern cloth diaper). Fitted diaper is made from cotton, hemp or bamboo. It's a soft diaper with snaps or velcro to wear on baby or toddler. Once it get wet, the outside of the diaper also will be damp. That's why it needs a cover and I chose to use wool as the cover. Ok, the hot issue... I only use this at night in air-con room.


I never wear this on En En yet as it need to be lanolized. I'm waiting for hubby to get me a tube of Lansinoh lanolin from US. So, you might wonder how it works, huh? Too long for me to explain here.

I'll try to knit a smaller size wool diaper cover for my future baby as I still have leftover yarn. Wish me luck this time!

Well done!
Actually, I use wool during a hot (& dry, I'm in Australia) day and the fitted nappy dries itself out.
So no hot red bum = happy baby

Not sure if this will work in Malaysia (hot and humid).

lotus: I think probably not, the fitted still remain damp after 2 hours even I let dd wear after it's wet.
