PUL or wool cover?

What would be a cooler option for summer?
I found a thread where wool was compared to fleece but can't find anything about PUL compared to wool.
My search comes with nothing when I put PUL.

Wool is def. cooler by a few degrees. There was a thread that had this info in it. I will see if I can find it.

Here it is....

Cloth diaper temps

4 days in a row the afternoon temp reach almost 90*, each day we tried different diapering combos. Here are his results:

After 15 minutes outside, temp inside the diaper:

Disposables 102.5*
FB 101.5* (this would be the PUL dipe)
Fleece pocket 100*
fitted with fleece shorts 98.5
pinned prefold with fleece shorts 97*
fitted with wool shorts 96*
pinned prefold with wool shorts 95.5*
just a fitted 95*
just a pinned prefold 94*

Yep, it is the thread that I found too.
I do know that FB outer is PUL but it took me twice to read your post to realise that PUL is included in this chart. Sorry!

Yes wool is breathable, so cooler. Wool is cooler in summer and keeps you warmer in winter. PUL can be compared to plastic, it will get hot because it can't breathe so moisture/heat/dampness will be contained inside.
