What to do with wool?
 
I have a ton of old felted wool sweaters. I was going to make diaper covers but ds developed a stay dry sensitivity and can't use fitteds. Besides dryer balls, what the heck can I make? I have around 8 a few cashmere.

DS wears longies and shorties I upcycled over his AIO all the time! I know wool functions well, but sometimes it's just cute!

Oh the things you can do! Go over to etsy and type in upcycled wool and a bazillion things come up. Toys, slippers, underwear, cases and purses, hats, steering wheel covers, blankets, you name it and you can make it with wool.

FFS them to me! (I tried.. LOL)

I like wool pj's pants. They are so nice and cozy for a little one. Your son is too old but a sleep sack out of wool would make an awesome gift for a newbie!

Is wool good for making diaper inserts?

I have a couple wool doublers. They go under the insert, between the diaper/cover and insert.

Make a bed-wetter pad for later. I LOVE a wool wetbag. Haven't found a sweater big enough this time around so I've about convinced myself to just do a patchwork. Make a patchwork quilt/throw/picnic blanket.

Upcycled mittens, hat, and coordinating patchwork scarf.
