New Ecobubs Wool Pocket

Post by Shae » Fri Jun 13, 2008 4:27 pm

Just wondering if anyone had any reviews about the new wool pockets. I had one of the Moss ones and had problems with the wool. So how does the new wool feel and wash up?

I haven't tried one but - from my stock I can tell you that they feel lovely!! 8-) Not sure if the fabrics are different - I think the older ones were woolknit, the new ones are acrylic and wool blend.

Hopefully someone will be able to give you a 'proper' review!

I'm biased, as Beck is a good friend. but I have two of the new ones, and they wear really really well. I don't think I had any pilling for at least the first 3 dozen washes, if not more. They work as well as the original stripe series, but wear soooooooooooooooooo much better. The drier has done nothing to it. Well worth the $$. Beck had the wool custom milled so she could have control over the quality, and IMPO, it's worked!!!

We have the berry strip one. Admittedly only got it earlier this week, but have used it every day and had it in the drier twice :oops:

Hasn't affected it al all. They seem a much better fit than the blush ones and are more like the original stripe ones

I've noticed they recommend NOT using ecostore powder, does that inc the liquid and other plant based liquids/powders?

It's just the powder. I use the liquid for every wash, plus vinegar, BS and canestan. The only thing I haven't tried is Napisan :D

Despite making my own nappies and probably being able to make a wool nappy.. I really like ecobubs for nights. It saves me having to use a soaker (or sposies :oops: ) and I can just chuck it in the washing machine unlike having to handwash a soaker.

I had been using my very original striped one up until recently and even though it's getting pretty thin it still works really well for a nappy thats been used daily for 18 months - 2yrs.

The blush ones were retired fairly quickly as they just didn't fit Amber all that well (and when I think about it, it was probably because they had shrunk).

I say go for it.. buy one :)

Shae, here is a pic of my two. I can do a closer one, possibly. But you can see the condition fairly well. The black one is about 2 to 3 months older than the stripe. HTH

I have 3 and use them for nights, love them. Still look virtually new despite lots of wearing and washing. Holding up much better than the moss and ocean ones I had.

I was thinking about getting a couple from Bumbles, but how do I know if they are old ones or new ones? Bumbles has blush, Moss or Ocean, if that helps

Figured it out myself! So the stripes is a wool blend meaning it has some acrylic?

The new wool ones are all stripes, except the plain cream. Blush, Moss and Ocean are all solid colours.

Please forgive me for being a wee bit dense :oops:

But how can a wool covered pocket act as a soaker? Doesn't the wool sit on top of the PUL? How does the wool have any effect at all? I guess it would be a bit warmer. But wouldn't a soaker that covers any gaps at the legs or waist be better?
