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

I LOOOOOVE Tinybirds! It was my first WAHM made soaker, I bought one when I was pregnant with Stella.

They are sooo soft.

Sadly, my WOW bar felted the crapola out of it. And one I bought for a friend so be gentle if you get one.

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.

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.

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....).
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!

I have an LTK soaker and it is gorgeous... but not the softest yarn, maybe even the scratchiest soaker I own. Still gorgeous though!
