Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

I used Aristocrats exclusively with my now 18 & 15 yr olds. I don't think there were other wool options then! LOL! Not much chance of them fitting under clothes! I've used Disana & they are a little bit less bulky, but not much. Lana is good,too. They are not the same style, but more likely to fit under clothes.

The Loveybums are a great fit, thick and soft, always consistently high quality, and they do fit under (most/upsized) clothes.
I agree! :Loveybums!

Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

There's a store on etsy that used to make double layered wool jersey soakers and longies, in natural color (undyed). Jersey is thinner than interlock, so it should fit under clothes fine (although we used interlock under clothes, but just not under jeans)

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/66207900

Looks like her store may be closed, but maybe try to find something like that? Or if you buy the wool jersey fabric, you can make them yourself pretty easily.

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.

Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

We have used kissaluvs wool lovers. They would have been too bulky to wear under clothes until he got around 13-14 lbs in his size small, but now 15 lbs it's no bigger than a OS pocket under pants. Normally I don't put pants over but he's got a rash and it's been chilly here in the mornings when we walk the dog so I pull some on. I think they are pricey but honestly they are beautiful and work extremely well for us.

Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

I could have been happy with a whole stash of Disanas if I didn't need clothes to fit over them or if ds had a wardrobe of stretchy pants. I liked the chocolate brown ones best; they matched just about everything and didn't show lint/stains as much as other colors.

Natural wool is lovely, though. Just know you will be fighting against nature to keep them looking nice, lol. I have a pair of newborn Ruskovilla's that were used so little that they're still nice, and a pair of natural Disanas that have enough wear that I usually choose the brown ones.

We only use Disanas at night now but I loved them for daytime last summer.

I love the look of natural wool. It is such a pretty creamy color.

Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

If you're looking for natural color, trim for under clothes, and pull on, Lanacare sounds like your best bet. In choosing between my pull ons (Kissas, Disana, Lana, some WAHM), I would have to say that Lana is my favorite all-around. I found mine on this site for a good price and it was in perfect condition.

I like ruskovilla nappy pants and shorts. They are pricey (but not as expensive as aristocrats) and have a very long fit range. My almost 2.5 year old can still fit in the size 60 (0-1 year size) nappy shorts because the rise is so high and the ribbed fabric is so stretchy.
