before i started using cloth diapers i researched all over the internet and i read about what to buy, how to wash, how to wash, how to wash, how to fold, how to wash, over and over again worrying that i had to somehow get it before i started doing it. then suddenly, i took a leap of faith and just bought a few pocket diapers and used them and tried washing them a few different ways and eventually i did get it. through doing it i got it.
then the same thing happened all over again when i wanted to try using wool. i read all over the internet, i asked the cloth diapering wool using mama i knew a million questions, i fretted and hemmed and hawed and thought it would not be for me. and then, i just decided to buy some wool and try it and see how it went for me. it was not love at first try. it truly was not. but within a month i was hooked and i have not looked back. when i fell in love with wool i had two in cloth diapers so i amassed quite the stash. today, i took pictures of most of it for any of you who think it might be fun to ogle.
before i roll out the pics i will tell you a few things:
- most of my wool is interlock, so with my super snazzy washer i do often wash it in the machine and then lanolinize
- at the bottom of this post i will put some links to information about how to use and care for wool
- i am trying to find the balance between not detailed enough pictures and too many pictures, if i messed up please forgive me.
- if you want a close up of anything let me know
- i will also include links to where i got my wool from at the bottom of the post instead of linking each piece as i list it.
- if you want me to talk about how i personally care for my wool i’d be happy to do that too.
