We love our wool around here, and have used recycled wool, interlock, and knit (hand knit and machine-knit like Aristocrats, Sbish). I love all of them, for different reasons. Mostly, I love that wool has been so bulletproof for us, and I love that it is breathable and cute.

Even though PUL is supposed to be "waterproof", we have had leaks, including compression leaks, with PUL - especially when babywearing. With the same diaper and wool, I got no leaks - yay! I think a big part of it is that wool gives us a much better fit than PUL and keeps the diaper snug so it makes the diaper work harder to absorb moisture.
