I just made a soaker from the free punk knitters pattern using Lionbrand Fisherman's wool. After lanolizing, will this be enough for nightime with a prefold and stay dry doubler?

It's enough for us...but dd is 2 and usually only pee's once anight, if at all. As long as the diaper you have under is absorbant enough, wool is great. I couldn't put my dd in pul or nylon overnight. It's 12 hours for her, and that's just too long in those other fabrics. I want her skin to breathe, even if it means that I have to change her midway through the night.

the first soaker and longies I did were from Lion brand Fisherman's wool! I wanted to try it out before I invested in "nicer" yarn. I agree with the previous poster, if the dipe underneath is sturdy enough (so that in the AM the dipe outside is dampish but not SOAKED) you should be fine.<br><br>
My guy is a big pee-er at night, and we do wool at night full time now. He just wears a giant diaper underneath.<br><br>
Try it, what can you lose except having to wash the next morning.<br><br>
We love our wool and his skin being able to breathe.<br><br>
Congrats on your first wool project. I got addicted once I started making them.
