Its not a set? What would be a set then? She has the cover, insert, and diaper, all matching blue skies.

The contour diapers are made to snap-in the wool in one fuzbomb. The cover in this auction is a fuz easy cover. It's doesn't have snaps for the diapers to snap in. At least I can't see the snaps in the photo.

Its very deceptive I think. She calls them diapers but they are contours. The "set" will techinically work (I have put trifolded prefolds into a fuzeasy before and it works pretty well) but not like she is advertising it. She just fails to mention that she isn't actually selling a WIO, but rather a Fuzeasy cover and 2 contours.

It looks nice to me, the only thing that would concern me is in the pic, it looks like the contour comes up and out of the cover - like it is too long? Maybe it's just the picture though.

It took a couple of looks, but in fact, she is selling an Easy cover with contours. Um, that's not going to work. I actually may have missed that if I was bidding. Hmmm, someone should e-mail her.

I emailed her and asked if it was a Fuz easy and if there are snaps in the cover to attach the WIO contours to...I thought it looked like a Fuzeasy, but I'm not a WIO expert, so I wasn't sure....

Oh its definately an Easy and the contours definately don't snap into it. Its something I would have noticed before bidding and something I might have bid on anyway, but she is, or so it seems, purposely deceptive.

I called Lori. She was not aware of the auction, but is now. She said that if the cover is side snapping, it is definately an Easy cover. She said that contours cannot snap into an Easy cover because the wool is too thin for snaps. She said it is not a set.

I wonder what the deal is... do you really think she is trying to be deceptive? Or maybe she just doesn't know? She doesn't say anything about them snapping together (though the pic shows a contour sticking out the top of the cover which seems weird). Maybe she got them for hyena-ness and never got around to using them?

I still can't find a size...

How much does a 'set' or 'not set' like this usually run directly from the maker?

You would have to know that they don't go together. You've got the contours with snaps and the cover with no place to snap the snaps. There's no way they can fit together. And then she has the WIO washing instructions so I don't know where she got that, but by including a picture of that she is claiming that it is a WIO, which it isn't. Point is, if she has those items in her hands and knows anything at all about diapers she knows she doesn't have a set. I might believe she doesn't know if she doesn't use cloth diapers and hasn't looked them over at all.

About $100 from the maker for a real wio, but it would auction for over a hundred. What she actually has there is worth about $70. I'm not saying this isn't worth what is being bid on it, but it isn't worth the bin price.

Yeah, I saw that the other day. It was very confusing!

Miny20- they can go pretty high! They are Garden dipes anywhere from 18-30 each for the contours and 30-50 for the FuzEasy.

Actually its worth whatever someone is willing to pay. I just have issue with the fact that she is deceptive about what it is. It is not a WIO and she says that it is. Plus she says it is from the Retro garden...not true. The fuzeasys were new. The contours are retro but not the easy.

What about the pictures of the orange pieces she has there also? I don't get the point of having them there if she's not auctioning them with the blue.

Oh , I was wrong. She does say the cover was made this year and the "diaper s" are retro. Its driving me nuts though. They aren't diapers! They're contours! lol

I LOVE this set! I have put it together for you to enjoy.
I dont think shes being deceptive at all! Shes saying SHE put it together as a set, not that the diaper/cover were made as a set! She never directly states its a WIO except with a picture of a Wool-Almost-In-One Instructions which she may have gotten from the purchase, who are we to judge! I dont think shes trying to purposely be deceptive even if he info is 100% on! Just my .02!

I think the auction is for both the blue and the orange "sets". In the description she says they remind her of the sky and the sun. Very confusing. Whoever bids on this should definitely clarify all of these points.

I don't think she is purposefully trying to be deceptive either. A "set" is really just 2 or more things grouped together. I just hope the winner knows that the contours won't snap into the cover.

Does anyone know what size this is? Did I miss it in the description?

Didn't the sky garden come with matching diapers (blue sky) and/or the sun diapers (like a sun in the sky?) which would be the reason that the orange 'goes' with the 'set' she put together. Anyway if I didn't know anything about Fuz (which is almost true LOL) I wouldn't know that the diapers don't snap in to make a WIO, that should be clarified. Well she can ask what she wants for a BIN price, put as high a reserve on it as she wants, if no one buys it she is the one paying the e-bay fees right?
