I was recently given the opportunity to test out Kissaluvs new wool diaper cover, which of course I was excited about because I love wool, it's my favorite fibers. One of the great things about wool covers (besides the fact that they are breathable and oh so darn cute on little baby bums) is that they will last forever. Wool is a fiber that doesn't break down like other materials, it's strong and stays strong, so you can use your wool covers for multiple children. They will also hold up really well so you can keep them as heirlooms. I know I want to give Elijah his wool covers one day when he's older, that would be such a great thing to have!
Kissaluvs began in a dining room with a fitted diaper for baby "Kissa". Today Kissaluvs continues to be a family owned and operated business. Kissaluvs makes and distributes cloth diaper supplies in the most responsible way possible which includes using local and US suppliers when possible (all of their fabric, diapers, lotions, and potions are made in the USA), recycling, compensating their employees with a fair wage, paid time off, and excellent equipment to use. Kissaluvs also donates fabric scraps!
Fit: I received this cover in a size medium, which is a perfect fit for Elijah. I was just looking at the measurements again and I realize I could have totally gotten a large so we can use it longer.
A good thing about wool is that it stretches, so while a large would have worked for us, the medium will probably be in use for a while longer. I would definitely suggest sizing up though, as you can see from the chart above the differences in sizes is so small that you can be pretty flexible.
Other than that the cover fit great, the leg openings were a good size, and the waist was high so you could roll it down or keep it up if you wanted to.
Performance: This wool cover has been wonderful. The wool is super soft and thicker than some of our other wool covers, so you don't need to lanolize it as often. I've only used my spray lanolin once and this cover has been great, no leaks at all.
Ease of use: This is a pull on wool cover which is the easiest kind of cover to use. No need to snap or affix velcro like closures. Just pull on and off. Wool, in my opinion, is easier to wash than PUL covers because you don't have to wash it often. I wash my wool covers once every 3-4 weeks. I have several covers, someone who has less could still easily go 2-3 weeks. After your baby wears it you just take it off and let it dry inside out.
Value: This cover retails for $36 which is standard pricing for wool, it's actually less expensive than some other wool covers of this style. I wouldn't think twice about purchasing this wool cover if I saw it in a store because it's so soft and I love the pull on style.
Buy it: You can purchase Kissa's Wool Lover Cover online at Kissaluvs. You can also find a local retailer near you bye searching here.
