--The buggle last winter!
YES, they are enough to be a diaper cover. BUT if you have a heavy wetter, and using it all night.... I'd go ahead and use some kind of wool cover AND the zipper.
NO, they are not itchy at all.
I totally would use this, after being machine washed in warm water on gentle with baby shampoo and then soaked overnight in lanolin (then spin the water out in the machine, or it will take AGES to dry, and then it's just damp and you can hang it up to dry rather than laying it flat) makes it like BUTTER, and just heaven.
What other questions am I trying to catch up on.... hmmm...... yes, lanolize the whole thing, it just revives the wool and conditions it nicely....
Oh,and Claire, if you were thinking of newborn size Ruskovilla stuff, I'd be willing to sell you (for a I-Love-Claire price
) my wool/silk kimono newborn shirt, my long sleeved wool onesie, my overalls that snap at the top-of-shoulder, and the zipper.
I'm itching for more paypal, can you tell? :LOL
