Forgive me for being a little skeptical, but I'm new to the whole CD thing. I crochet ALOT and would love to whip up some wool soakers for my babe, but not unless I know they actually will keep the wetness IN. I guess for some reason I just have trouble totally believing that moisture wouldn't escape because crocheted stitches tend to have more spaces than knit ones. I do not knit, and don't intend to anytime soon, so that's not an option! I know I could make some extra big and felt them, but then you run into the problem of sizing. I know that regardless, you have to lanolize the wool to make it moisture-resistant. But I'm needing a little bit more convincing that wetness would not still leak through the stitches. Am I just being silly?
