When I first started cloth diapering, I always heard people talk about wool soaker. In my mind, I think that's crazy idea. Because when the diaper got wet, the soaker would be wet like crazy. Plus in summertime, it gonna be too hot.
Few weeks ago, I decided to make my own diaper cover, so I did more research about cloth diapering, I found out that what I thought about wool soaker are totally wrong. It is opposite what I thought. Wool is waterproof and it regulates body temperature, just think about sheeps. Their coat are keep them from getting wet and hot weather. Now it totally makes sense to me. I decided to make my own wool soaker. I joined the yahoo group and talked to people over there, I learnt more about wool soaker like how to lanolizing (to maintain the lanolin). And I found some free crochet soakers patterns from Ravelry.
Yesterday, I started to crochet my first one, and I finished this afternoon. It is super easy pattern, and looks great. I love it.
