Bramble Bean Wool Soaker Review & Giveaway (3/06)

When I first started down the road to finding the perfect cloth diaper for me I didnt know where to start. When I took a closer look at one of my retailers (Huckleberry Baby Shop) I came across these very cute wool covers and was immediatly drawn to how practical they were. I had been using pre-folds for a while but wasnt happy with my covers. So I purchased 3 covers just to try them out and LOVED THEM. I would throughly recommend them to anyone. I have found them extremely easy to use and clean. Shia looks super cute in them and just loves wearing them. As a side note, Melissa, the creator behind Bramble Bean, was in active labour when she was finishing off my wool covers! Way to focus Melissa.

Melissa had always loved to "give old things a new life" and started using cloth diapers when her middle son was born. With the help of her friend Cristi @ Huckleberry Baby Shop she started to research wool and how it could be used as a diaper cover. She made a pattern and set out to find a sweater to felt. Melissa likes to use only Reused-Recycled-Rescued or Repurposed materials in her projects. This is now a passion of Melissas and she is dedicated to creating eco-friendly products that are North American made.

SO MANY BENEFITS: Naturally anti-bacterial, breathable, able to absorb 30% of its own weight before it even gets damp. They are tempreture regulating and once lanolized they are water repellant, an excellent choice for sensitive skin, reduces and/or even eliminating diaper rashes. They need a little extra laundering care but do not require washing as often and are essentially self cleaning  - urine reacts with the lanolin to form a soap, only needing a gentle wash every couple of weeks, sometimes longer and are naturally odour resistant.

 How do you decide what size is right for your babies needs? Take a look at her simple sizing chart and see your options, while you're there check out her other wonderful designs and a handy guide on how to wash your covers. I personally use eucalan - a no rinse delicate wash enriched with essential oils. I use the lavender and grapefruit not just for my diapers but for sweaters too. They smell so good!
PRICE: 8/10  EASE OF USE: 9/10   LAUNDERING: 10/10
