Come on...you know you want to talk wool!
Sewing related questions: Can someone tell me about the different types of wool fabrics that can be used for covers (talking sewing here)? (pros and cons of them, layers needed, etc) Also, what doesn't work? Can you use suiting? Also...where to buy and/or how much would you typically pay for the different fabrics?
Knitting related questions: what should I look for in a yarn? What is the price range for good wool? How long does it take you to knit a soaker? What would you say is the cost of the supplies (needles and what not) needed just for knitting soakers? What are the basic supplies needed?
Do you think it's cheaper to sew or knit soakers? What do you like to use more? Pros and cons of each? What would you say is an average price for a knit or sewn cover?
A lot of questions, I know!
I've been thinking of so many! Basically...I'm trying to decide if I want to focus on sewing or knitting wool covers. I made 2 recycled wool soakers and I really
like them, but it's the only wool I've used. I don't have any knit ones. So, I'm trying to figure out if I want to learn to knit or if I should just focus on sewing. I really like sewing, but I see so many people like knitted soakers and I can't afford them. I really like cloth diapering and I know you guys won't think this is silly, but...I know that one day DS will potty learn and I won't be able to cd anymore!
So, I'm thinking I'd like to be able to sell diapering related stuff in the future just so I can stay in this little community that I love so much.
