And I only get 100% wool ones, because I could never remember which ones are not otherwise. If I was open to blends or cashmere, acrylics I could have even more to choose from. I have just as many soakers and half a dozen hats too.

I've got a small stack of summer weight sweaters I need to make longies, shorties, and soakers out of too. I love to use the super thin silky merino wool sweaters for this. I probably get asked the most about this one, which uses the same kind of sweater:

The wool is literally as thin as a tshirt and works beautifully as summer weight with a thick diaper, or under any longies that would otherwise not be nightworthy or carseatworthy.

So ladies, if you can sew at all or know someone who can, stuff like this can be yours inexpensively
yes thats beautiful - put me inline cherly for manpris for the summer out of that kind of wool- nb sized

Obviously this was not for my son, it was for someone else's DD in a trade. One of the first skirtypants I did, so I didn't know you are supposed to put elastic in them (oops). But it looks expensive, right? Only because of the sweater.
