I am thinking about trying to use prefolds more with wool wraps, and am wondering which ones you recommend that can let me use the pf without pinning or snappi-ing. Thanks!

I wanted to add that I have already tried the Bumpy wool, and it doesn't fit ds right. I know there are others that look like the Bumpy, so I don't think those would work either.<br><br>
If anyone knows of a pattern for making a wool wrap that would work, I'd like that info as well. Thanks!

I think woolybumbums make what you are looking for. They are wool wraps that have velcro, but I don't use pfs do I don't know for sure.<br><br>

You could try bikini-cut Biobottoms:<br><br><a href="http://www.biobottoms.com/products/item.asp?Id=1183&C=15&S=6&ssid=245FE17ECFEB4CEE87EE706B13FC0F35" target="_blank">http://www.biobottoms.com/products/i...EE706B13FC0F35</a><br><br>
I don't like the way Bumpys fit on my kiddos either, but the Biobottoms fit more like Bumkins or Proraps (if you've ever tried those covers).<br><br>

I use a <a href="http://www.stacinator.com" target="_blank">Stacinator</a> wool cover with a CPF folded in thirds, the long way I fold down the extra(pix found on <a href="http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kfegelman/index.htm" target="_blank">Karen's Cloth Diapering Page</a> ). Stays put like a dream, which is great because I am Snappi Challenged <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake">

How about Patchwork Pixie woodland wraps? They're gorgeous and I know she's getting some new wools soon so I imagine she'll open her doors for orders soon.<br><br>
Hope you find something<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I haven't tried the wool, but I loved the cotton niji covers on my first. I imagine the <a href="http://www.babyworks.com/catalog/product.asp?dept_id=12&pf_id=1230" target="_blank">wool</a> would be pretty similar. I'm scared to use a trifolded prefold with my ebf baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">. She's quite unpredictable. LOL!

I had a couple of wool Nikky's that were my favorite diaper covers until I discovered Stacinator fleece. I haven't tried the stacinator wool to know how it compares. My son's outgrown the Nikky's now but boy did I hold on to them to the very last minute. Plumber's crack in a diaper is just wrong<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/guilty.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="guilty">

I just ordered two from woolybumbums.com from Sarah. She is great. She made me two- one pull on and one wrap. She will custom make to insure a good fit.<br><br>
I have one lambins. Great workmanship, and works well with cpf, but not fitteds as it has a high leg cut.<br><br>
I also have a staccinator and sugar peas from trading post on the way, so hopefully those will be nice.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
