do you sew at all? i will not buy new wool (vegan) and i don't live in a great area to buy second-hand, but i have had pretty good success with making longies and soakers out of felted thrift store woollen sweaters. my first attempts were not pretty, but they worked awesome for night-time, now i'm getting a little fancy and making cute woolly pants with appliqued designs and everything! total cost is $6 for two pairs of pants and a soaker (a small baby could probably get as many as 4 soakers from one sweater). much better than $20-$30 for a new soaker!
my favourite part of wool is the self-regulating temperature. i love a wool soaker in august heat waves... you go to change the diaper and it's actually cool... and in winter, a pair of longies will keep them warmer than anything else.
