Anyone tried these woolly HC nappies?

Postby tiyuricc » Wed Aug 25, 2010 4:28 pm

Just came across these on hyena cart, wondering if anyone has tried, or made their own. Had a quick look on ravelry and found a free pattern for a pocket nappy, but like the idea of the folding insert on this one.

Wondering if it works...they're made of cotton, not wool, not sure if that makes a difference.

100% wool acts as a water proof outer but it doesn't absorb. I imagine the nappy would be as absorbant as a cotton nappy but I don't understand how it's a pocket b/c surely the outer of nappy should be 100%wool

It's knitted in cotton I believe, not wool. I've been watching the progress a little. I've heard good, she tests them on her own children and has had others test for her.

I came across these on Monday and wondered how they worked. I'm intrigued, but not enough to part with money! Would be interested to hear reviews though.

me too! wondering if i might try to make the pattern from rav, which is a different style to this and has a pocket for extra stuffing. haven't had a look yet, but i think the details are sparse so not sure that my knitting skills are up to it yet.
