Love lovey bums crepe for day and interlock for
Night. I started with a disana soaker but quickly sold it because it was so bulky. I love that the lovey bums wraps are trim.

Have you considered upcycled wool? It's a lot cheaper and it's cute. I like My Eco Baby on etsy.

I think the "lower end" wool yarns are typically Patons, Purewool, Stitch Nation, and I Love This Wool....all but purewool can be found at Michaels, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby
I think Plymouth makes worsted weight wool too, but I can't remember the name of it right now? My local yarn shoppe has it...its comparable in softness and price to Patons. Fisherman wool is cheapest per oz, but its not as gentle as the others.
Most of the above are about $2-$3/oz

If you want higher-end wool, we are talking SUPER soft cotton-feeling wool, I would look on hyena cart's "spots" to see if you can a colorway you love.
Most of those can be anywhere from $4-$6/oz

If you want go get something from a dyer/spinner...they are WELL worth the money for quality!
They will be anywhere from $5-$8/oz from what I've seen?

Recycled wool rocks! Get some that was pre felted and you can machine wash on gentle cycle.
