Poverty Jane OS Fitted Diaper & Wool Cover Review


Poverty Jane first caught my eye with her organic fitted diapers and covers, but I also liked her other frugal, but charming creations. Poverty Jane doesn’t only specialize in cloth diapers, but rather in many creations made with love. In addition to cloth diapers she creates wool crib covers, organic viscose bamboo wipes, wool covers and longies, and baby shoes. I love the history and legacy behind her rustic façade, especially with her personal stories such as why she mends her re-purposed wool with hearts (read about it here).

I was able to review a one size fitted diaper as well as a matching set of wool longies and a soaker re-purposed from the same wool sweater (pictured below). Her up-cycled wool covers and longies are an affordable way to get wool covers on a tighter budget or to add to what you currently have and each is one of a kind. These covers ran a little large, however, paired perfectly with the fitted diaper with both inserts for my toddler, which required a roomy cover to fit over the bulk. She does take custom orders for her wool covers to get the perfect fit, however, depending on the thickness of diaper you prefer to wear under.


The particular diaper I reviewed was elongated (from her usual one size version listed in her shop) to have 4 rise snaps, to allow for more growing room for toddlers so it ran on the larger side. The fitted diaper itself has 4 body layers; however this diaper also comes with 2 set in inserts to customize absorption as needed. One of the inserts has a viscose bamboo velour top layer with 2 layers of viscose bamboo fleece; and the second insert has 2 layers of viscose bamboo fleece, 1 layer of cotton fleece and a layer of hemp terry on each side.

Some additional information about this style of diaper from Poverty Jane:
Stream Line Style Diaper has a hidden contoured liner sandwiched between the diaper body that consisted of 4 layers of  cotton fleece,  organic  hemp terry and 2 layers of OBF. This is placed within the stream line area of the child to prevent leaking in that specific zone. It also helps to maximize absorbency as well as keeping the diaper trim. Because of this feature, you can choose not to use any of the inserts to create a slimmer look. The reason for the inserts is to give the diapering family more control over the layers, bulkiness and in which situation the diaper can be created to suit the needs of its given situation.

I love that the fabrics of this diaper are prewashed so there is less shrinkage and “wrinkling” of the fabrics, particularly in the inserts. You will still need to prewash the diapers to get the natural oils out before they reach full absorption, of course, but I like that there was less uneven shrinkage for a more polished look.

Although we tried this diaper during the day it quickly became an overnight diaper of choice paired with one of the wool covers as it was very absorbent and my daughter is a heavier wetter who sleeps about 12 hours overnight. During the day we prefer 1 of the 2 additional inserts for a slightly trimmer fit, but my daughter still has room to grow at 30+ lbs so I like that it has a larger one size range towards the toddler years than many one size diapers.

These are definitely thick, absorbent diapers, and because of this you child can go coverless for longer periods of time when using the included inserts. I love to let my daughter run around with just a cute fitted diaper and a pair of leg warmers when we are at home, so this is a good choice if you are looking for breathability and absorption. I will also note that her diapers are made of all new materials and top quality threads, notions and bamboo fabrics.
Poverty Jane only uses fabrics and notions that have passed OEKO-TEX standards so you know only the best is against your little one’s skin.
