Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

If I were looking for a natural colored wool soaker, I'd pick kissaluvs. I LOVE disana, but they're too bulky to use under clothes, and the leg cuffs are so long they're almost shorts. Kissaluvs are SUPER soft, work well at night, and are trim under clothing.

I don't know about natural colors, but we love our Sbish wool cover. It's great for nighttime. That's all we use it for. It is bulky.

The Ruskovillas really are nice. I don't know why they don't get mentioned more here. If I had the money to do it, and if our climate justified it, I'd dress my babies in nothing but Rusko clothing from head to toe.

I love Disana. Poppy has worn Disana every day of her 21 months even under clothes and pj's. They are easy to care for, budget friendly, natural looking, and darn near bulletproof even unfelted. Unless there is a co-op I buy from Small Green Footprint. They have the best price I have found online.

I know, I wish more people used Ruskovilla so there was more available on here second hand! I think when people do have some, they tend to hold on to it.

But the great thing about quality woolens is, they hold their value pretty well. They can be resold and a lot of what was originally paid can be recouped. I used to think I couldn't afford to dress my kiddos in woolies, but then I realized how much of it I get back when reselling. It ends up working out to be around the same prices as regular clothes or less when all is said and done.

Loveybums pull on wool cover! They do come in undyed. They are nice and thin, and super soft and squishy, and fit really, really well!

My 2nd pick is Sbish Underwoolies, but I really prefer the fit on the Loveybums pull on.

Kissaluvs wool covers are awesome and the sizes last a long time compared to others. I really liked them for the first 6 months. I prefer interlock right now and WCW has some great super soft interlock as well as RW. You would probably have to do a custom order to get only natural though. Unless you find some old Luxe covers in natural.

Re: If you had to pick just one kind of wool...

I am switching to wool. (90% of the time)

I can only afford to buy 6 pieces right now. I'm really struggling with what to buy. I was thinking 4 sbish underwoolies, 1 sbish knit cover and a kissaluv's wool cover. Is this going to be ok? Enough? Should I skip the sbish knit cover and buy 2 kissa's? Or vice versa?
