Each cover is made from two layers of Oeko Tex 100 certified Merino Wool and has a 100% cotton interfacing in the wings and front (to hold the snaps securly in place). The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for all stages of textile production. This certification ensures that products are free from harmful substances. There is no finer certification than the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It goes beyond the organic label!
Wool is highly absorbent. It will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and is slow to feel damp, yet remains breathable, allowing maximum circulation around your baby’s bum. It contains natural lanolin, which creates a waterproof barrier. Wool is easy to care for. It doesn’t need to be washed as often as other covers and it is naturally anti-bacterial. Its elasticity means the cover fits well, yet moves with your baby.
Three rows of snaps and latex free elastic provide an adjustable fit to accommodate you growing baby. We use only latex free elastics that have been sewn on the interior of leg openings and waist to avoid any allergic reactions.
Hand wash and lay flat to dry. Periodic lanolizing is needed for optimum absorbency. ( See lanolizing instructions under product information on Babee Greens home page)
