IPF & Wool

How long should I expect an IPF (premiums and regulars) to last under a soaker? It's just been washed and lanolized, I'm just not sure how well! Anyways...how long will a pf and wool last with your dc?

Re: IPF & Wool

i use indian pfs alot and unless i put a doubler or something with it ~ it doesn't seem to last for a Long time. they don't seem quite as absorbant as chinese pfs do but they are so much softer than the chinese i had that i like them anyways. Sometimes i use a premium and an infant under it. That will last a while longer and is still pretty trim depending on how you fold it

i guess it also depends on how thick your wool is. I have some that is thicker and lasts longer than other wool.

Well I think we had it on for just over an hour, and I am impressed! She was pretty soaked inside, and had a poopy and the wool wasn't even wet!

Re: IPF & Wool

Re: IPF & Wool

Wool is great compared to the synthetic stuff. I have some Bummi's that I use when I wash my wool, and if I have to use a Bummi for night time she always wakes up wet and soaked through. When I use wool, she'll be wet on the inside but dry on the outside and not freezing. I use mostly PF with a infant PF as a doubler even in the day as she's a soaker now that she's a bit older. As another poster said too, depends on how thick the wool is too. If I use my merino knit soakers, they aren't as thick so I have to change her more frequently as I don't like leaving her in a wet dipe when I know she's wet, yk?
