Wool Longies

Here is a pair of wool sweater longies I made for Trin out of a recycled wool sweater. Usually wool covers are made to be used as diaper covers. Since wool is naturally antibacterial and can absorb up to 30% of it's weight in wetness. You only have to wash it once a month or so (depending on it's usage). When I sold all my diapers I sold my wool covers as well. I made this one to go over Trin's training pants at night in case of any overflows. This way her bedding can stay dry. If you would like more info on wool and wool covers you can check out this site
I had inteded to take a pic of the sweater before I turned it into little longies, but I forgot. It's neat to see how you can recycle stuff and reuse. What was once a sweater I wore is now my child's wool cool!
