HELP! Recommend a HOT WEATHER WOOL SHORTS & soakers/pull ons?

I really would like to do wool here this summer. Last time I cd'ed dd thru the summer I quit CDing all together as i got too fustrated. We live in Vegas and it is WAY hot here in the summer. PUL makes my daughter get heat rashes bad and fleece isnt better either. SO wool is my only option but I am OVERWHELMED to say the least by all the wool out there. I would love to find some light weight wool shorts for my daughter to wear throughout the summer. Also maybe a soaker or pull on cover to wear under clothing when we go to nice places. Absorbancy is important, and most important is that it is breathable and light-weight.

Side note: My 25 mo dd only pees in her diaps, if that makes a diff. She is potty trained for poo's and a couple pees. We got a way to go on potty training fully though...Anyway....

*Anyone can recommend good wool shorts for us?

*And also maybe recommend a soaker or pull on cover?
(my daughter doesnt stay put for long, so snap covers dont work here)

I would go with interlock.

Luxe makes shorts and great pull-ons.

Rumpknits also make some great pull-ons.

I *think* a mama on her was starting to test wool interlock skirties.

Be-Bops makes really light weight shorties with jersey or interlock.

AhMay also makes WONDERFUL shorts, but they're a little heavier weight as she does 2 layers of wool.

Wraps from Clothmopolitan are really cute under dresses, but not as quick to put on because of the snaps.

Light weight knit or crocheted soakers would be cute under dresses too... and really would be as cool as the interlock, IMO.

Good luck!

do you think purewool counts as lightweight?

I knit and crochet...I have a pattern for a trim pull-on soaker that might be perfect. I also have some interlock in rust, forest, and royal that I can make shorts from.
