Ok I know this is probably not in the right section but it fits in a couple of categories (DYI, Wool, Wahm) so I thought I'd put it here for now - please feel free to move it if necessary!
I really want some merino wool interlock items for Anna. Preferably a soaker, some shorts and possible even another pair of longies... I know it would probably be cheaper to buy the interlock fabric and try to make these out of it myself, but I dont do boring anymore when it comes to nappies or covers so would need to dye them.
Is it difficult to work with?
Is LWI dyeing done the same way as for normal fabric?
Is it worth the extra trouble/mess as opposed to buying some ready made?
If I do get some, is it better to get 100% merino or 97% merino & 3% lycra?
If I buy ready made - which one would you recommend, bearing in mind that airmiles dont really matter anymore so they could come from US or UK - unless someone knows of funky Oz interlock woolies?
Sorry for the list of questions!
