I have 2 Celtic Wool Creations covers, one is a Celtic Wolf, and the other is a Celtic Knight.
I bought the front-snapping Celtic Wolf a couple of stockings back, and use it regularly in the day and occasionally at night. NEVER A LEAK. The cover has nice deep gussets that keep everything in, even the thickest of diapers. DS' diaper can be completely soaked underneath, and the cover is still nice and dry. I only wash it 2 or 4 weeks, and it has never started smelling even then. It always airs out and reverts to smelling new and *sort of* fresh very quickly.
I was concerned about the fit however, because DS was already on the 2nd last snaps, so I emailed Mary about it, and she was brilliant. She sent me a tester in her new large size, this time a side-snapping Celtic Knight - it is different from the Wolf in that instead of 2 layers of thinner plaid/tartan, it is one thick layer of blanket wool.
Well if possible it works even better than the Wolf, because the size is just right for DS. It covers a Happy Hempy stuffed with a toddler prefold (folder in fourths) and an additional microterry doubler. The gussets are simply awesome. I cannot say enough good things about these covers!
The Celtic Knight is now our favourite overnight cover by far. Sure it can be a little bulky over the huge night diapers, but it just can't be beat for keeping everything dry. The Celtic Wolf is slightly trimmer if you want a nice fit under clothes.
Mary is also tremendous - she is really responsive, extremely helpful, lovely to work with, her service and shipping very fast. I am so looking forward to her next stocking and her Celtic Hippos!
