Choosing a wool soaker

I'm fairly new to wool and need some good recs for a pull on soaker. I'm using a Stacinator stretch wool now over a dream-eze but dd side sleeps so I think that a pull on would do better. Plus she doesn't seem as comfortable laying on all those snaps.

I'm looking for one that is soft, not really bulky, will work for my super soaker, and is readily available.

Any opinions on Crats, Lana, Disana, Southand, or Llamajama. I've seen these at alot of different sites for decent prices.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Re: Choosing a wool soaker

The aristocrat was totally bulletproof for us. Great for sleeping but I think unuseable under clothes for day.
Disana very soft but also bulky.
Lana might be what I would recommend you try for what you're looking for. I'm really liking ours. It's trimmer soft and very reliable. We haven't used it at night but I would expect it to work.
The llamajama I haven't tried but it seems a bit lightweight to go overnight. I could be wrong and maybe someone else can share their experience with it.
I don't know anything about the southand.
Hope this helps

I LOVE our crat for overnight, that thing is bulletproof. NEVER had a leak. I haven't ever tried the others so I don't know anything about those.

Re: Choosing a wool soaker

I use a crat at night and Never had a leak. Its slightly bulky though so i don't now about clothes fitting over it. I plan to get the crat longies for fall so her legs will be covered. Crats are super soft and comfy though

I also used a nightweight Righteous Recycled wool wrap. They snap on the front so those shouldn't bother you dd side sleeping. It works just as well as my crat. I love them both!!

I've not tried the others you mentioned so i can't comment on those

Re: Choosing a wool soaker

There are many WAHMs that can make you a custom soaker that is pull-on or has drawstrings. DS doesn't sleep with anything over his wool-just a tee and his soaker. I've never had a leak either!

Re: Choosing a wool soaker

I love totally custom wool, but wanted to throw out Pickle Pants soakers - I don't see a lot of folks talking about these, but I recently got one in a trade and LOVE it. Absolutely bulletproof, made with yarn from a small family farm and is just adorable on: http://www.thecucumberseed.net/picklepants.htm

I have the original soaker, but that cloud one looks divine, too! Not totally custom, but it looks like you can pick your color, which is cool.

Those longies are adorable! I might just have to save up to get some for winter! Thanks for the link
