A little rave for an MDC mama!<br><br>
Like many other people here, I'm always happy to learn about new wool products and WAHM's. I didn't realize it until recently, but our very own MDC mama Melaniee has been quietly offering soakers and wool pants on ebay (New Zealand brand) that she has hand-dyed herself, with Kool-Aid.<br><br>
I won these wool pants (NZ "ski pants") for Noah:<br><br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2346322070" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2346322070</a><br><br>
And this newborn soaker for a friend's baby shower:<br><br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2346586524&category=26267&rd=1" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ory=26267&rd=1</a><br><br>
And they arrived today and they are just lovely-- gorgeous dye jobs, Melaniee, on both of them. Gotta love that nice Kool Aid smell, too. In addition, she combined shipping and shipped very fast and was just super nice in the transactions.<br><br>
I also was impressed by the quality of the wool products, sold widely as undyed and unlanolized. The leg openings on the NB soaker (so cute and tiny) stretch nicely, the waist is gently elasticized. The wool pants have a generous cut and leg cuffs for warmth, and are a nice weight. Both products are very, very soft. I think the sizing on the pants (these are 2T roughly) runs quite true to size-- Noah is quite skinny, but has really long legs, and I'm pretty sure that the pants will fit him perfectly in the legs (if I want room to grow, I think I'd need a size 3). These would fit a chunky toddler very well, and have plenty of room for a bulky dipe underneath.<br><br>
Just wanted to say great job Melaniee, and I hope that your wool venture goes very well!<br><br>

i won a blue soaker on ebay and i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! it is soft and very stretchy and fits beautifully over a fitted dipe. i loaned it to an aunt to give her an idea of what kind of soaker i wanted her to knit for me and i was lost without it (i got it back today!!)<br><br>
she is really sweet too and great to work with! i can't wait until her store opens!!! i would definitely recommend buying one of her soakers!

I always look at those beautiful soakers on ebay and wonder why when I dye them they never look like that. I had no idea that was you Melaniee. Beautiful work!!

Ah mamas, you make me blush. Thank You so much, that means a LOT. I never realized how nerve-wracking it might be to sell things to other mamas. At first I was worried they would sell, then they did and I was WAY more worried that you wouldn't like it/them.<br><br>
Pam - I know, I know, but it WAS Seattle that did it to me. I only brought a few fleece diapers (b/c I consider them show-off since they're all appliqued and they wouldn't be shown under all the clothing we'd need in that COLD seattle climate). Ds was SO hot in all his PUL while we were there, that I came home and decided I'd have to find me some <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wool">. Of course, like all the other mamas, I became an instant convert. Then I fingured out that I could have a lot of fun and a creative outlet with some soft wool.
