The Slow Down 100% natural wool soakers are made from locally sourced Merino wool. The wool have NOT gone through chemical and mechanical descaling to produce superwash wool and are therefore especially suited for cloth diapering. They will naturally felt a little leaving the soaker even more water resistant. These soakers absorb much more lanolin than superwash soakers and therefore remain self cleaning for longer with longer wash care intervals. Full care instructions are included with your soaker.
