Here's a short explanation:
Wool is an amazing fiber, especially in terms of usefulness in diapering. Wool can absorb a great deal of moisture without feeling wet, which means that a diaper will become totally saturated before a wool diaper cover begins to leak. Add to that the fact that wool is naturally antibacterial, quick-drying, and odor-repelling (when properly lanolized, wool will not hold the smell of urine!), and you've got yourself a perfect material for diaper covers. Many mothers testify that wool soakers are the only truly leak-proof nighttime diapering soloution.
to Howie in a soaker!
