so dont they need to be lanolized? if so, wouldnt it be a bad idea to have a wool inner cuz it would pull the moisture to the sides? (i think) if not, then how does the outer act as a soaker?<br><br>

I just don't think the wool would absorb fast enough. I wish it would work, though, because I don't use synthetic materials but like the pocket idea.

am experimenting right now....<br><br>
I have this sewn soaker that is really thin organic wool knit jersey, so I pulled that on first (it's also soft enough that I would put it next to his skin), then the diaper, and a felted wool soaker. Now just waiting for him to pee.

Did he pee yet?! :LOL I read this thread with a great deal of interest and am curious how your experiment worked! Inquiring minds want to know!

Wool makes and EXCELLENT inner, it's very soft, works the same as fleece but adds a little more absorbency, and is natural for those with poly allergies.

I have a hard time imagining wool on the inside against the skin -- I know some wool is super soft but I guess until I actually felt it I would always think it wouldnt be too comfortable.

Well he didn't pee before bed, so I left him in the combo all night, with a wool one piece zip up pajama on top, for extra protection in case the wool-as-a-first-layer thing did not work too well.<br><br>
Well, it worked great! The wool against his skin was fine, and kept him dry, and absorbed like crazy so just the diaper (an elbee) was wet but not soaked like his diapers usually are in the morning. The wool soaker I used on top of the diaper was barely needed since the diaper was just damp in front, not soaking wet. Hmmmmm....I think I will keep doing this at night, since it seems more comfortable to have wet wool (feels dry) against your skin, rather than wet cotton. cool! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana">

Oh, and in case anyone wants to know what it is that I used, exactly, you can see it here:<br><br><a href="http://www.childrenswoolens.com/babies.htm" target="_blank">http://www.childrenswoolens.com/babies.htm</a><br><br>
scroll down to pull on diaper covers, and it's the short leg woolen diaper cover, right before you get to the woolen bedding.
