Re: CT Mamas!
Since I knit as well, usually covers for babies, I use 100% wool. There's SO many varieties, some that contain more or less dander, and some that is so soft, you'd never think it was wool at all. IMO, using wool on a baby wouldn't usually give you any issues. However, if you're honestly allergic, I might stay away from it.
If you did want to knit your own longies/shorties, covers, etc, 2 patterns I love are Sheepy Pants & Adorabubble.
