I'm trying to figure out who to stalk for longies for our new babe. Because this is for a newborn (and I'm horribly itch-sensitive to wool), I want to buy only ultra soft and non-itchy wool. I've heard that Morwenna's (MM) NZ organic wool is amazing. What other wool soakers/longies are super soft and non-itchy?<br><br>
Thanks!

i love Eco wool. And blackberry ridge wool. Those 2 are the softest wool I've ever felt. My kids always grab their eco shorts or blackberry ridge shorts first. My son will carry his around and yell at dh for grabbing a different cover.lol

The softest, least itchy wool soakers are the ones made out of hand-knit, undyed, organic merino.<br><br>
I believe <a href="http://www.birdcrossstitch.com/organicwool/soakers.html#soakers" target="_blank">Tiny Birds</a> just re-opened for customs.

yup. it's super soft. tiny birds treliske merino is equally soft and lush. jenny is a dream to work with. we use tiny birds for overnight and they are virtually leak proof.

LANA wool! I love the softness of my lana cover. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Loved it so much I ended up buying, the baby hat, booties, sweater and 3 blankets from Lana. I think what makes it supersoft is the fact that it is merino wool that has never gone through chemical washing (superwash). Chemical wash makes wool itch!

Where do you get this? Do any WAHMs use it in their soakers/longies?<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Thanks! I'd love to knit some of my own in addition to stalking (I'm learning with acrylic right now cuz it's cheap), but I haven't learned to love double pointed needles yet (understatement) so I'm thinking of buying longies and just knitting my own soakers...

I agree, the yarn from handpaintedyarn.com IS incredibly soft. Karren at <a href="http://hyenacart.com/muggumsnugglies/" target="_blank">Muggum's Nugglies</a> uses it too.

Handpaintedyarn.com merino is really soft except it gets pilly.<br><br>
Bluefaced Leicester, plymouth outback and tiny birds merino are my favorite for seeming to be durable and don't really pill.
