I Am Afraid of Wool

Yes, I am a wool virgin.  I fist assumed it would be scratchy.  Then I pondered how to care for wool.  I have no idea how to lanolize anything, no idea how I would wash a wool diaper cover, or dry one, and how long my kiddo could wear said diaper cover.  I don't know the difference between shorties and a soaker.  I have no idea what felted wool means or if it is very different from knitted wool.  To be completely honest, I have never used a fleece cover either.  Just a regular PUL cover.  I want to change, but I am afraid!!!  

I want a cooler option for Miss C this spring and summer.  I'd prefer a natural fiber that breathes.  They don't look scary.  In fact, they are adorable.  I am dying to get my hands on one.  But I am afraid of the investment because I am sure that somehow I will ruin it.  

Can anyone assure me that a wool diaper cover is NOT scary?  I'd love to hear about your wool experiences!

you are much like me, I had no idea how to clean what to do or anything. I received some to review and seriously had to do some major research. I love them.

What is lanolizing?!

Tiny -- It makes the liquid bead up on the wool *I think.*

Shannon - is it hard to care for?
