A good friend of mine just recently opened an online store. It’s the same friend who wrote this post and this post. She’s one of those awesome moms with two under two that still manages to open a store. Yeah, I don’t even think I could handle the two under two part. She’s also awesome at babywearing (if you didn’t get that from the posts) and sells beautiful wraps and slings for way less than you’d pay elsewhere. She let me test one of her slings when she was working on the pattern and I miss it dearly. I’m sure she’ll be getting an order from me in the near future.
Anyway, on to the actual post.
When Jillian asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of her diaper covers for her site, of course I said yes! This lady has been so great and has given me multiple covers since Twig was born. Of course I can do a review for my blog!
She makes wool covers out of recycled sweaters. It’s something many have heard of, quite a few have tried, and not many have mastered. When the materials for a project change so drastically from piece to piece, it’s difficult to work out a system that works. Jillian though, she’s worked out a system. More than that, she’s innovative.
I introduce to you… the stretchy wool cover with snaps.
Man, this thing is awesome! I had no idea what I was missing out on! It’s literally all of the benefits in a PUL diaper cover and all of the benefits of a wool cover all wrapped (you see what I did there?) into one! You lay your babe down, pull it closed (no worry if it’s not placed entirely right, because it stretches), and snap that baby together. No leaks whatsoever, because there’s some awesome elastic around the legs. At the same time though, it’s still wonderfully breathable, water impenetrable, and great for the environment (times two, because it’s recycled and wool!). It also covers the prefold in a way that my knit covers never will. I’m not sure if such a product exists on the market already, but if not this girl needs a patent.
And beyond this beautiful invention, I can say for a fact that her other diaper covers rock too. This is the third one that she’s given me (maybe fourth? Sometimes I find it difficult to remember things that happened more than a week ago.) and the others were happily invited into my rotation. I was very sad when Twig outgrew this one on the left! It has such a cute little flower on the bum! And the ones on the right? I mean, how cute are those longies? And they’re stretchy too! Yay for ribbing!
