Check <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=26267&item=4306891223&rd=1" target="_blank">this</a> out on Ebay. It looks like a Tinybird soaker, but I don't know if Tinybird oranics is the same or not. I just remember a couple of people were ISO them a while ago on the TP. Too girly for us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I really really want to try one of those. I missed the last one on ebay by $.50 ( I went to bed, silly me). I saw that one, but I have one purple and blue soaker already. I may bid anyway, unless someone else here is trying for it (hint, hint tell me if you are <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> .

I LOOOOOVE Tinybirds! It was my first WAHM made soaker, I bought one when I was pregnant with Stella.<br><br>
They are sooo soft.<br><br>
Sadly, my WOW bar felted the crapola out of it. And one I bought for a friend so be gentle if you get one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was a little concerned looking at that ebay picture. She says it is a little pilly, but it looks like it might be felted. It is harder to know when buying on ebay. The reason I want one is we need super soft wool and I heard these fit the bill.

Yeah, call me crazy... or really picky but I won't buy a used soaker unless I know the seller. A used merino soaker from eBay spells felting to me...

really? i thought bbb was not very soft... mosaic moon and KSS are soft, and hard to get, unfortunately. i'm thinking blue purls looks soft, too.<br><br>
can you knit? i made a couple of soakers from plymouth galway that are as soft as merino.

I only have three knitted soakers - BBB, tinker from ebay, and angelwraps crocheted - so BBB is the softest of those three. I have never tried the KSS or MM (someday....). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I am taking a knitting class this summer so I can try to do my own. I really love the colors of the LTK woodland fairy yarn, but have never tried one of those either.

If you can knit at all you can do the fern and faerie pattern, it is soo easy!<br><br>
I have an LTK soaker and it is gorgeous... but not the softest yarn, maybe even the scratchiest soaker I own. Still gorgeous though!
