Recommend great & affordable WOOL shorties, longies, & soakers?

I am ready to take the plunge but want to start off with just a couple affordable and great working wool products. I'd like a pair of longies and a pair of shorties or a soaker. Recommendations?

recycled are the cheapest and they work great. I've gotten longies from woollybottoms.com. I love them they are soo cute! She makes shorties and soakers too.

Recycled is a great way to start because they are so affordable. I make crocheted soakers, longies, shorties and skirties for a reasonable price too! Link in my siggy and ds mama's get free shipping!

Maybe the lone manufactured wool fan here, but for useability, function and price, I like Babyology (on ebay). We've got two Babyology longies, and they have double layers in the body of the soaker on the longies; they are bulletproof for nighttime!

Llamajama is priced well; Kozy Designs (fm. BJMarketplace) has cute stuff & is fairly affordable, too. Check out FSOT for wool first, though; you can get some good deals, and try different things (different yarns, different makers) for fairly cheap, and most of us wool collectors that sell things often treat our wool nice & keep it well.

I agree with all the suggestions stated above...Shayla at Heavenly Huggers does great work on shorties, soakers and longies for reasonable prices to me...you may want to check her out too.
Although I'll have to say recycled is the cheapest way to start off in wool, and the wool FSOT board is a great place to find some beautiful wool at great prices
Good luck
