I'm about to embark on making my first soakers and I've found some yarn that is a 70% wool / 30% soy blend. I'm fairly new to knitting and yarn crafts, AND to diapering, so I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me if it's okay to use this blend of yarn in a soaker. Does it have to be 100% wool or can you use other blends as well?

I know someone here made a soaker out of it. It was beautiful! Hopefully that mama can chime in and let you know how it worked out. I imagine the soy would be similar to cotton property wise and that might make for an odd combo but I have no clue.

I've used SWS for a soaker and I love it. The colors are beautiful, it keeps its shape well without too much blocking, and it lanolizes easily. It's by far my favorite soaker!

My baby has longies and a soaker knit with it. I love it. It pill fairly easily but that is ok.
