I'm an avid cloth nappy user and as any cloth addict will tell you, wool makes an excellent cover for fitted nappies (nappies without a waterproof layer).
A quick lesson in wool
Longies = trousers made from wool, can be either knitted or crocheted
Shorties = as the name suggests, these are shorts made from wool
Soaker = A pair of pants made of wool, they literally cover the nappy
Skirty = can you guess? Yes a skirt made with wool. This can be with a soaker underneath or without
You can also get variations of these, crops, boardies, longies with a skirt over the top, sleep bags and even longies with tails and dinosaur scales.
Why am I tell you all this you ask?
Well I decided to have a go at making Rheya a pair back in October 2007. I've been hooked ever since and you'll see many more nappy covers made of wool.
I did make a faux par with this first pair and bought acrylic yarn, but as it was cheap it was a good practice.
I also made the rise far too big, but you live and learn right?
