Cotton backed light wool girth cover with Wintec girth?

My sensitive-skinned grey mare has developed a rub on the girth area by her elbow (just hair loss, not raw thankfully).

I've always used Wintec girths (shaped and straight) on her with no problems so no idea why this has happened now.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't try using my Wintec with a cotton backed light wool girth cover, even though I think these girth covers are designed for leather girths?

Thanks for any guidance.
