These soakers are made from recycled sweaters. I had heard one mama here say the soaker she got was very itchy wool, so I wrote Lin first, telling her of the review and my concerns, and specified that it must be very soft wool for my DD and must be suitable for night use with a moderately heavy wetter.
The cover I received was wonderfully soft and a nice fit, but one leg cuff was slightly larger than the other, and the seam was not sewn in line with the crotch seam (the other thigh seam was), and the seam was bumpy, so it kind dug into my dd's thigh. I asked to exchange it due to the flaws and again reminded of the type of cover I needed and said I'd wait, if necessary, to get the "right" cover.
The cover I got as a replacement was VERY thin, VERY scratchy wool. Completely not what I asked for. So I sent it back and got a refund.
Lin was very professional in handling the issues I had with the covers, but I feel she is not selective enough in choosing the wool sweaters for these soakers. I think it would help if she had an in-stock store instead, with pics and good descriptions of the wool and fit.
Your experience is likely to be hit or miss. I've read of some who are very pleased with her soakers, and have heard of 3 other mamas who have received very itchy wool.
