Re: new soaker :)

So all I need to make a soaker is just to knit with wool? I can do that :-) Is there anything extra that needs to be done?

Does superwash wool work for diapering purposes? I was under the impression that it would not work.

Not as well supposedly but we had this yarn leftover from a blanket so I decided to try it out. We use it over a pocket diaper at night and it's perfect for containing leaks.

What I've heard is it's about the same as a fleece soaker....

VERY cute, nice job
