I just wondered people opinions on them, you know the pull up ones like knickers i guess. Do they need lanolizing (spl) and work the same way as wool i have no idea about them x

Well just going off the fact the site is called wild child woolies I would guess that they are indeed wool and would probably need lanolising but they look felted so like the hollow oak ones you might get away without doing it for daywear...

Quote from the information section of their site:

Wild Child Woolies wrote:Wild Child Woolies pants, shorts and soakers have a body usually made from soft 100% merino wool hand dyed with professional sabreset dyes in a rainbow of luscious colors. The waistband and cuffs are made from wool blend of 97% wool and 3% lycra. Wool interlock is nice and stretchy- particularly the wool blend. You will find it nicely on tiny bird legs all the way up to giant elephant trunks! Some small and medium may have hidden (from the outside) snaps in the waistband to attatch the modified tee. Soakers have a sewn in double through the wetzone for extra wetness protection right where you need it without the bulk where you don't. This makes them suitable for overnight use. Snaps are occassionally offered on these as well.


They're offline until the 15th feb anyway :)

Wild child woolies are def wool.

I like them, but have had problems with colour bleed, especially into unbleached cuffs :cry:

I have a couple of polyester fleece soakers. They work great and are easy to care for, unlike wool. Just use them and wash them, no lanolising required!

Here's a pattern to make your own (use a recycled fleece jumper):

I am not finding the wool too hard to look after. Have been having success with my heavy felted interlock without lanolin - they have done a few full days, tho havent tried a night yet. And as the heavy felted stuff is machine washable, I have even chucked them in the nappy wash. I am thinking that they may not have so much of the self cleaning element without the lanolin, but if they are easy to wash, thats not such an important thing

I've machine washed my Hollow Oak longies, they were getting a bit grubby and hand-washing wasn't helping :roll: They were absolutely fine.
