Melaniee! Is that you?? If so, we've been missing you are SP. You should stop by and say hello!
We live in a cold area (bitterly cold tonight!!) so we do a combination of wool and cotton depending on the weather and level of activity. The $ thing was one of the big reasons I started to knit! Thankfully a little wool goes a long way. We wear all natural fibers as synthetics don't work for my family for a variety of reasons.
My itchy wool hating, very sensitive, little one *loves* his baby alpaca wool sweater, no itch!
On the subject of snow pants, my kids have snow pants made by a mama from our local Waldorf school. They are thick fulled wool on the outside with organic cotton lining! The kids wear warm layers underneath. They are really beautiful and they work great! They are also machine washable and dry-able, a big plus. They can be worn as just over-alls in cool sans snow weather.
