Wool items must be washed differently. See Caring for Wool and Lanolizing.
Special Note on Load Size and Detergent Amounts:
For top loading washers, the amount of water you use and the amount of detergent you use can be critical in whether or not your diapers get clean. Add too much water and your diapers can't brush up against each other to get clean. Add too little water and your diapers can't move around enough to get clean. We recommend that your wash load looks like stew and not soup or chunky chili.
Cotton and microfiber diapers can be used after one full wash. However, hemp and bamboo diapers have natural oils that can repel moisture. For this reason, you'll need to wash them 6 - 8 times using hot water before your first use. Washing them multiple times is known as “prepping” them. While you can use them safely prior to prepping them, just know that they won’t be as absorbent until they’ve been fully “prepped”. *Note: hemp and bamboo diapers can be washed along with other diapers in your stash.
Wool items should not be tossed in the washer - this will ruin them. Instead they must be hand washed. See Caring for Wool and Lanolizing. for instructions on how to clean your wool covers and longies.

If your little has a yeast rash - "hugs mama". I'm sorry you and your little have to deal with this. The good news is that you're in good hands with this article. I've battled yeast rash at least 3 times that I can remember and each time I was able to get it to clear up in about a week with no trip (or copay) to the doctor's office using 3 simple steps.
