Re: Does "felted" also mean "shrunk?"

If someone doesn't know much about wool I can see them not realizing that usually something that is felted is smaller. But your description is not "somewhat" felted. That's full blown felted. Even if that wasn't enough to get your $ back, the stain surely is. Sorry mama Felted wool is awesome for heavy wetters or overnight but measurements are a must.

Should I have assumed that it was this shrunken? Should I have asked for measurements? Was I just being ignorant?
To boot, there is a 2inch stain on the outside that the seller did not mention...
Do you have another Loveybums interlock soaker? My LO is a very petite 3 - 28 lbs and I can't get her into a large anymore with a rise of 18 inches. It is supposed to fit up to 30 lbs. She hasn't worn her larges since she was maybe 23 or 24 lbs and she is really short. IMO this brand interlock runs small. I have heard that the wraps - crepe and jersey run true to size.

If it isn't the interlock pull-up soaker just ignore me. LOL

i agree, them and woollybottoms. i bought brand new, and i could barely stuff a prefold with doubler under the appropriate size and I was 6lbs under the max.
