<p>I was just given three wool skirts (plaid patterned ones)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can I do anything with these? The material is really nice 100% wool, but they don't have any give (its felted? not knit?)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>could I use this at all in diapers?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks I tried googling, but not having much luck.</p>

<p>If you dont want to wear them as skirts....they might make nice scarves, or you could cut them up and use them as a layer for a diaper,  not next to baby's skin but inside would work.   Its not that its felted, its just that wool fabric is typically made that way. </p>

<p>I just meant it should be part of the liner - like sandwhich two layers of wool inside an inner and outer layer of flannel / hemp/ cotton velour - something like that - wool can be scratchy against sensitive skin!</p>
