Wonderful soakers! I have two, a custom bright colored hand-dyed, and a special sailboat applique one. It's hard to believe that my skinny toddler wears a size small, but he does. Be aware that the sizing is pretty generous. These soakers are trim, beautifully made, and Theresa is not only extremely knowledgeable about wool and knitting, but also a terrifically nice person.
I do wish that that sizing were more uniform, however. My sailboat size small is most definately smaller, especially in the leg openings and in the rise, than my other size small. I do realize that hand made items will vary somewhat, but the difference between these two seems a bit outside the normal variation that I expect in cloth diapering. I also wish that the leg openings were a bit softer-- even though wool has plenty of stretch in it naturally, I prefer a more rolled-style leg opening because it seems more comfortable on baby's thighs. With my smaller size small, I get some red marks on my toddler's thighs-- and comfort is one of the main reasons why I want to use soakers.
