Nikky cover users....have a question

OK, we just got our first Nikky cover from Zabi Baby and it is awesome. It is the softest cover ever. I could have a whole stash of them. I snappi or trifold prefolds and it is just perfect for both. My question is....what is the difference between these two covers. I have the cotton one and love how soft the fabric is. Is the rainbow trimmed similar? Just trying to figure out what the main differences are

Re: Nikky cover users....have a question

I believe the rainbow is a poly inner with a cotton outer layer and the 100% cotton is 2 layers (inside and out) of cotton with the inside treated with a waterproofing layer. That is how I understood it but I could be wrong. We have the rainbow, the breathable poly and the cotton. The breathable poly is WONDERFUL for nights with a Flip organic. These are the best covers around. So trim and soft.

This!!
That is the difference! Touch the inner layer of the rainbow and you will notice is not cotton is a soft poly fabric and both layers of the breathable cotton are soft cotton knit.
I love the rainbow. I will be honest, I have never used the breathable but my favorite is the heavy duty poly.

Sorry if this is OT, but my DS can wear Niji XL's in the cotton/poly for trifolding...I am wondering if the Niji wool fits a little smaller because it has no stretch? Should I go with an SL to be sure? Id like to fit fitteds and trifolded pfs under it.

Re: Nikky cover users....have a question

I LOVE these covers both Nikky and Niji, cotton and wool. These were my first natural fiber covers and I am slowly building a stash of them for the next lo.
We got a lot of use out of them and the wool ones are bullet proof for night time. I think that it is the Niji that has a fuller seat, more room than the Nikky. I might totally have that wrong though. LOL It's been awhile since we used anything, DD pled 2 years ago!

I use both and to be honest I find almost no difference except for the way the elastic is placed.
The wool have NO stretch at all, is felted wool and leak proof. Is a very good covers for beginners in wool.
