Is Bumby wool itchy?

I just ordered a pair of Bumby longies and some shorties, but I'm afraid that they might be itchy for my son. I have sensitive skin and have to wear some shirts inside out due to hems itching like crazy. My ds is 5 months old and has eczema. He wears sbish at night with no obvious discomfort, but I'm afraid interlock might be too itchy.

Anyone have any experience/advice they can share? I'd live to continue using wool in the summer, but don't want to waste time and money of itchy wool. TIA.

No not itchy.

It is like a piece of fabric but it is made out of wool. It is dense and solid, but soft.

I love interlock! It is so soft and beautiful. (The other advantage is that if you husband or child throw them into the laundry and they get washed they don't felt because they are pre-felted.)

Ladybug was very sensitive to itchy wool. Most of her wool was custom cashmere. But, she was fine in Bumby soakers.

Nope! My guy has eczema and 80% of bottoms he wears are bumby. He does great with them. Silky is softer than fuzzy but neither are bad.
