Here are some pictures of wol soaker pants i have made for my Azie to wear overnight as diaper covers. Wool is great becasue it allows those tender baby bottoms to breathe! I havent had a bit of diaper rash on Baby Bear’s bum since i started woolies for overnight, and if he gets a litle red from the daytime diapers, he’s over it by the morning!
Anyway, i ordered a pattern from Dandelion Dreamers (on hyena cart) for crochet shorties & longies and pulled all of my wool yarn out… and here is the result!
These awesome longies are Lamb’s Pride in turquoise & chocolate brown. Is there anything cuter than a 4 month old baby in wool longies?
I have more in the works – a pair for Sarah from ivory Lambs Pride, grey wool (i dont know brand or anything) in alternating stripes & the waistband & leg ribbing is in Lambs Pride lavender. Although Sarah is a little suspicious of woolies…
I have both knittes & crocheted woolies, and the crochet seem to be more waterproof. Maybe it’s becasue crochet takes so much more yarn that there is more wool per square inch than in knit? I dont know, but Knit is more flexible & lighter so maybe better for summer, but crochet is great for super-soaking overnights.
