Not sure about the type interlock in question? But, I wash our really dirty knit/chrochet/recycled ones in my machine. I have a special wool cycle though. I do have wraps that are machine washable. I just toss them in the wash with my dipes.

If it's the wool/lycra blend interlock (either 95/5 or 97/3), then yes, you can machine wash on gentle cycle. 100% wool you can probably machine wash it as long as it's been prefelted, but I'd do it in a mesh bag.

I'm guessing you mean wool blended with lycra, not cotton - a wool/cotton blend would NOT be good for diaper covers.

LOL!! I knew that wouldn't be right for some reason!! Is there a way to tell if it is 100% wool or the blended??
