Check out this discussion/study of how much cooler babies are in wool. Plus, it's cute and feel nicer than plasticky covers

Longies are wool pants. Shorties are wool shorts. Soakers are form-fitting pull-up covers.

HTH!

Longies are like wool pants, shorties are just little wool shorts and soakers don't really have legs, they are more like a wool "panty" if you will. We like them all, LOL. The hype is that they are super absorbent, don't require very much maintenance (washing every couple of weeks and lanolizing), they are SUPER cute, and they're breathable and have antibacterial properties. We use pretty much fitteds and wool only in this house, with the exception of some AIO/AI2s and some pockets.

Wool can be really fun. You use it over fitteds or cpf's and it is great overnight.
Longies are like pants.
Shorties are shorts.
Soakers are a diaper cover-shorties with a shorter inseam.
I think that a good fitted, paired up with a wool doubler between the fitted and wool soaker/longies/whatever is bulletproof for overnight.

For a bunch of different types of wool items.
Also, I don't think there's much difference in the performance between knit wool items and recycled wool items. The recycled wool stuff is made from wool sweaters.
HTH with what you were asking!
