I'm wanting to knit some wool soakers\covers. whats everyones favorite patteren and yarn? Thanks!
You need to use yarn which is at least 80% wool or alpaca, and preferably 100%. It also needs to be hand wash only, as wool that's been treated to be machine washable has all the lanolin stripped out of it, and won't accept more. My favourites are Artesano100% alpaca, Artesano Nebula (alpaca, merino and worsted mix) and Twilleys Freedom Spirit. Also Cascade 220 sport

My favourite patterns are Curly Purly and Evie pants (which is a longie, shortie and skirty pattern too!)
I use whatever 100% wool I have on hand...I'm not picky! ;)
