Hi! DD is only 6 days old; is a wool soaker and prefold too warm for her to wear in 25 degree weather? that's around 77. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hmmm...we live in Texas, South to be exact, and its H--O--T here!! Our firstborn wore Wool Nikkys all through the summer with a prefold and never seemed uncomfortable at all. No heat rash nothing. If anything, his skin was so cool in comparison to his Nylon covers. Our dd never wore wool, but our thirdborn, ds, used a wool soaker last summer, and he was so nice and comfy in it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> It was my first soaker, and I miss it so<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We also had a Beccabottoms Sheep Shell and that was so awesome!! Nice and sooooo soft!! ps- our heat index can get well over 110 degrees at times<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

IMO it depends on how thick the soaker is, we had a heat wave here a few weeks ago in the upper 80's and my DS's butt was pretty sweaty with wool on but it was thicker soaker shorts, probably better for night time. (no other clothing on.) He himself was hot too, we ended up going coverless at home for awhile to cool him off. I bought some wool jersey covers to try hoping that will work better than soakers on very hot days.
