Wool

Which type of wool is best, what percent, and how many layers?
I have a super super heavy wetter and want to get some longies off of etsy

Re: Wool

are you looking at recycled wool? you want a high wool content & probably w/ a double layer in the wet zone.

We don't do recycled (I'm too picky about how it feels & also need to know fiber content b/c of DS's allergies).

I think a good kind of wool to start w/ is interlock. It's really low maintenance & you can throw it in the washer.

Re: Wool

Interlock is great and its easy to use care make it worth it! But if you are getting knitted wool you need to ask to make sure that the yarn used is on a thick absorbent base such as Cesari, Moutain Meadow Worsted and Black Berry Ridge I also don't care for the feel of upcycled wool and like both interlock and knitted wool!

Re: Wool

I am another interlock fan. . Wool is nice because it can be reused so many times between washing!

I have 1 interlock pull on and lots of interlock wool with aplex or snaps. Both are awesome!

I also have handmade shorties and soakers.

I also have made upcycled longies and soakers. They are cheap to make. The sweaters only cost me about $3.50 each. I can make a pair of longies and 2 soakers per sweater.

This is a week of wool only. I just went through my stash and found a bunch more fitteds and woolies that are now fitting our 2.5m.

Re: Wool

I have used handmade soakers and can use them during the day but for nighttime really need a heavy duty doubler layer all around like sloomb wool. It is double knit all over and not just in the wetzone so it works really well for us overnight.
