Well how are you allergic to it? allergies have different ways of manifesting, do you get itchy hives? sneezing? coughing? sick? if your basing it on itchy rashes from way back, it could be your allergic to the type of wool and might not be allergic to it all. If your sneezing you could be allergic to the dander in the wool, and well there is a lot less of that in a soaker or pants because of the lanolin. If you have a basal reaction to it (get sick and cough all over) well then there is nothing you can really do.

Now alot of people are just super sensitive to wool and aren't really allergic, just anything abrasive on their skin makes them break out.

As an alternitive I would suggest fleece maybe? that is about the only other option, if your looking for natural, there are other fibers (angora and mohair for two) that can be used for soakers, but they each have their own drawbacks (shedding and such) good luck! ~
