They're great - a bit bulky on a newborn, but they work, and are a really good budget option. I prefer knitted or crocheted ones to felted wraps myself, as I don't like elastic, but if you can get...

Actually, I find terry squares work as well if not better at containment than fitteds, as long as you tuck up a bit around the top of each leg, and use a bias fold like the kite.

Normally just between changes. they don't usual even feel damp when they come off, but wool absorbs 30% of it's own weight in wet, before it actually feels wet. So even an hour airing is fine, unless...

Try wool or even better alpaca longies. They are gorgeously warm and soft in winter, but also cool in summer. Wool covers also work fantastically well with terry squares

Wool looks expensive, but you only need a couple as you jet alternate, and they rarely need washing. I actually like 3, so when I do wash or re-lanolise, I still can have 2 alternating. Also for...

I'm not sure about having wool next to the skin. I'd rather have fleece or something stay dry there. Wool next to the skin would stay pretty wet, and I think you'd have to wash it every day as well,...

Firstly make sure the wool you use is not machine washable, as wool treated to be machine washable will not accept lanolin.
 
Secondly, to lanolise your nappy covers, by far the simplest way is to...

I reckon 3 is enough in any style. So one is on, one is airing and there's a spare for when you do need to wash one. So you might need 3 soakers for nights and 3 longies, shorties or skirties for...

It depends whether the wool is machine washable or not as well. It will felt easily if it's hand wash wool, but will be much more difficult if it's machine washable
