1. Works great as a nighttime solution paired with an obf
2. Wait for a sale- they used to have 10-15% off sales regularly which helps with the steeper price tag- now the discounts are harder to come by but still happen.
1. They are delicate- require more TLC (handwashing and lanolizing)
2. There can be 'natural variance' in the sizing between batches.
3. Preorders are often late.
I LOVE these covers. I have not tried other wool covers, and I don't think I every will because I love these so much. So soft, so absorbent, so easy to care for. It took me a little while to figure out how to keep them lanolized properly, but it is actually really easy! After doing the regular lanolin wash process, I simply rub a little solid lanolin onto the cover (both inside and out) every night before I put them on my son for the first week or so. After that, I just reapply a little lanolin once a week or so. I now only have to wash them when they get dirty or just because I feel guilty for not washing them in so long (I've gone 3 months between washes with 4 covers in rotation!).
I love these wool covers. They are soft, absorbent, and come in great colors. Recently they do have a tendency to fall apart for no reason. Many customers including myself have had problems with the wool coming apart at the seams. Also, inconsistencies in sizing are very common. I have had m/l longies that range anywhere from 10-12 inches long.

I've tried many different brands of wool diaper covers and while I find Sloomb (Sustainablebabyish) brand covers to be of the highest quality, I rated this product three stars because the customer service of this company is abhorrent. If you buy Sustainablebabyish products, try to find them from an outside retailer (Kelly's Closet, Weedle Weedle, Sew Crafty, etc)
