How much wool?

I live in a fairly hot/humid climate and I remember with my last baby liking wool and breathable covers during the summer. Now that I'm having a baby girl I think it would be fairly easy to put her in dresses and just have the diaper/wool cover underneath. How many would I need? I'm talking hand knit/sbish type that I'd pull on. I think I have one sbish small and one underwoolies. I'm thinking at least 3-4 total? 2 to switch during the day, one or two for overnights?
I also have a few hand knit things, but they may be the wrong season/size.

Re: How much wool?

If using exclusively, which I never did 😀, at least 2 for overnight because the take longer than 24h to dry in the summer/humidity. Day I would say 3 or 4 for similar reasons and cause you might want to wash more than 1 at a time.
Mom to LO#1 born 1/7/2010 (Cloth diapered since day 1; Part-time EC since 9 months; Daytime PL since 29 months; Nightime PL at 5.5 years) & LO#2 born 12/1/2013 (First diaper was cloth! Part-time EC since 12 months & Daytime PL at 26 months) Checkout my absorbency tests. Thoughts on how long a cloth diaper REALLY lasts. Thoughts on Yeast , here, here, here & here.
