I have lots of natural dark brown undyed 100% New Zealand wool that I got originally for a sweater. It isn't the softest but is this the kind to use to knit these? It smells strongly of lanolin. Most of the wool I've been knitting baby stuff with is merino and it is all machine washable but very very soft to touch. Does the regular wool not bother baby skin at he legs and tummy?

As long as it's not treated to be macine washable it should be fine. The lanolin treatment will soften it as well. Unless your baby is allergic to either lanolin or wioll, it shouldn't irritate, but I guess if it's very course it could prickle a bit. Softeryarns certainly don't seem to cause any irritation.

I have a few questions if that's ok!

I've been really interested in wool! Our first is due at Christmas, so a such am building a stash in preparation for baby to be born. One of the main things I've been hesitant about is when you look at wool soakers to buy, they all mention the measurements, and because of baby not being born yet, I have no idea how big she will be . I'm happy to not use wool right away, but would kind of like something in place in anticipation for her to be here, so I don't have to worry about doing it afterwards. Would you realistically recommend waiting until after she's born?

Also, i'd like too make my own really.. I have seen blog posts where people have upcycled a felted wool jumper, and that might be an option closer to Christmas as we're being bought a tumble dryer, but I have just taught myself the basics of crocheting so am interested in the idea of crocheting some soakers myself! I'm sure I can find a pattern.. I know that it is recommended 100% wool, and the hand wash only, but is there any brands that you'd particularly recommend?

Thanks!
