I am currently using Aristocrats, which I like, but I'd like to branch out into the wool world a little more.

Also, the Aristocrat doesn't seem to be quite waterproof enough, though it certainly doesn't leak, just wicks pretty consistently if I leave the same diaper and soaker on all night. I use doubled-up prefolds at night.

I'd love to hear about your favorites!

I've never tried a WAHM soaker but I love my Disana soakers. I buy a size larger and felt it slightly in the dryer. Makes it nice and thick and pretty much bullet-proof once lanolized.

I don't actually know the difference between a "soaker" and a wool cover...are they the same thing?
Anyway for a pull on style my favorite is Kiwi Pie Peels. They are great- so soft and very leak proof.
For snap on style I like Sugar Peas or Loveybums, although the Sugar Peas is definitley less bulky.

I like Disana or Lana. Actually, I like Lana the best.
