correct me if I'm wrong but you can't use superwash if you want to use them as actual diaper covers. Now if you just want to use them as pants over an aio/pocket/cover then you are good to go

Superwash does not hold lanolin as well as non-superwash wool. So you can use it but you just have to wash it more often. I use mine like I would any other fleece cover and I just love the ease of washing them in the machine and not worrying.

I love superwash for my DD. She wore pockets when she was in diapers, but now that she's 3 I love it for its durability and ease of washing.
