They werent nearly that pricey when Michelle at SMJAE made them. She is closed right now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> If you sew id say go to the thrift store and try them out. If you love the way they work then you can buy nicer ones if you need/want to<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I feel I must step in here and respond to your concerns regarding the wool liners that Heather now carries. I approached Heather after I decided to close my store about carrying the wool liners because they are an item that is very dear to my heart and I felt I was not able to get their concept clearly established before I had to close. I felt if anyone could explain their function and make them understandable it would be Heather. My initial introduction price of the wool liners was for the sole purpose of INTRODUCTION. I had no idea how the public was going to<br>
respond to them so I wanted to offer them at a very low price, that way people would not be scared to at least give them a try. The wool liners are very time consuming to make, approx. 45 min each. The yarn is pretty expensive and sometimes very difficult to find. Heather purchased the wool liners from us so she has that cost to bear when she resells them. I didn't have that cost to bear because we made them, we just had the cost of yarn and labor. I hope this helps you understand a little bit better what it takes to resell an item vs. being the manufacture of an item. The wool liners are a new concept that I had no idea how people would react to and is a concept that I am passionate about. I<br>
hope someday the idea will help hundreds hopefully thousands of CD moms save time, money and be more successful at CDing.<br><br>
Take Care,<br>

I don't think they are that pricey if they allow you to resuse diaper and switch out the doublers. I was just offering alternatives. They do take awhile to make and I can appreciate that. Ive only made 2 so far. My reply to her was that you did carry them cheaper and when you reopened that maybe she could find them at a lower price. I wasnt saying that Heather marked them up a bunch or whatever. I didn't realize that was intro pricing.

Do report back on that . . . it would be useful to many and it would be a great way to re-use/recycle!!! Ooooh, pictures too please! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I just made my first one from a Goodwill find last night. It took WAY longer to felt the wool than it did to cut out and sew it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I am not sure if you would need to wash them in Euclan first Meghan. I would guess though, that if the sweater looked like it had been washed many times it wouldn't hurt to wash them with Euclan. The process that will give you the most benifit is the felting process. I hope that made sense, my brain doesn't work to great these days.<br><br>
