TerraMade Review and Giveaway - US ONLY


Wool love! I have caught a definite bug. I love that wool creations are unique and one-of-a-kind. I love that Hyena Cart is overflowing with wool creations that are easily accessible. What I love even more is affordable wool! Lord knows it can get expensive. Enter TerraMade! TerraMade has a Hyena Cart shop, as well as a website, and her wool creations are adorable! Terra 's shorties/longies/soakers custom slots are only $14.95 for a basic pair and then you can add on other custom items, such as embroidery or make them into a skirtie, at extra cost! I had the privillege of reviewing a gorgeous pink skirtie from them and I could not be happier! I have always wanted my daughter's butt in a skirtie and now my wool dreams have come true, thanks to Terra!

TerraMade was founded in 2009 and is a home based online store out of Sioux Falls, SD. They offer a wide variety of natural living items, not just wool! All of their prices are affordable and all of their items are made in the USA! I love that they support fair trade practices and support work at home Moms! The wool products that TerraMade offers are made out of upcycled wool sweaters of other recycled items! I absolutely adore this about them. Not only are we saving the world by cloth diapering, but using recycled items to get those cloth diapering materials is even better!

For review I was sent a pink skirtie! I was absolutely giddy when I received this! Have a looksie at my daughter!

The outfit I put her in with the skirtie!

Her "cheeeeese" face lol I had to post it!

There's Violet trying to twirl her skirtie! She loves holding it like that. So adorable.

I love the attention to detail she put into this skirtie. I gave her my daughter's measurements and the skirtie fits perfectly. I always wonder and get worried about measurements and things, but I didn't need to worry with TerraMade. There is a cute little tag on the inside that has an M for medium and the part that covers the crotch area has a little bit of extra fabric there, almost like a liner! I thought that was so adorable and unique. Such a nice touch. My daughter loves dancing around in her pink skirtie because the skirt part if nice and flowy. I have gotten dozens of comments from people at the grocery store about this skirt, but little did they know it's for cloth diapers! I am learning that wool is much more convenient, because you dont need clothing to go over it, it functions as the clothing and the diaper cover!

I wash my skirtie by dissolving 1 tsp of lanolin per woolie that I wash in a bowl with warm water and a squirt or 2 of wool wash. I let this sit overnight and then I throw it in the washer on the spin cycle to get all the water out. After that is done, these babies go outside with my other wool for a good Arizona sun dry! That's it. You only have to wash once a month unless they get severely soiled. The lanolin turns the baby's urine into salt so there is no odor. Wool is also a natural antibacterial fabric so there are no bacteria odors either! Sucha win-win situation!

I highly recommend TerraMade for all your wool, cloth diaper and natural living goods needs! Check out some of the other products they carry:



Charlies Soap, as well as wool dryer balls and other natural cleaning products!



Mama cloth and nursing pads!

Butter Yellow Knickernappies One Size Diaper

  2. I work in an office that doesn't recycle, so I hang a bag in the kitchen, collect everyone's items, and take them home to recycle.

  76. I would definitely get a knickernappies diaper, but I know that doesn't meet the criteria for my entry, so I'll also say I might get some of the "tweed jacket" dryer balls! :-)
