Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...
I used Lanacare soakers exclusively with ds1. I think for soakers they are the trimmest. We did cloth full time with only 3 Lanacare covers. We didn't own any PUL at all. Four would have been easier but 3 was totally doable. The only drawback for us is price. One cover costs around $50. They only come in natural color and are organic if that matters to you. I have the disana and th aristocrat. If I had to choose from those 3 covers Lanacare would win hands down.
