Brilliant, thanks :)

And, I'm sorry for all the questions... Size-wise, I'm guessing you just measure the baby and get shorties etc in the most appropriate size. How often do you find you need to move up a size? Just wondering how much the might cost me overall.

Wool lasts ages, I have found mine outgrown them on the length but not the width. C

@littlesez made me a lovely pair of longies nearly a year ago now. She made them with a turn up so there was growing room and my LO still wears them now, fine in the width but a bit ankle shy in the length :giggle:

I don't want to hijack the thread, but how inferior is polyester fleece? Allergies mean that wool and lanolin are unsuitable for us.

You can use fleece ! It's not as good but it's an option :)

Sorry totally missed the last few posts.

Thanks for all the help, I've got a wool soaker on a trial that we've been using for about a fortnight... It's amazing! Definitely a convert.

This may be interesting to you. I have just published a BLOG site about the magic of wool. It approaches all aspects of it, and explains how and why it works, as well as how to maintain it. I'm adding to it day by day, and have started a DIY section as well, with a step by step knit along, so you can make your own. I hope it's helpful, and feedback has suggested it is. http://www.lpnappies.simplesite.com Any feedback much appreciated :D
