For most of you cold weather has arrived! I’m shocked at the number of Facebook status updates I see that exclaim “SNOW!”. How crazy is that when I’m enjoying the nice 80 degree weather??
Despite the fact that Sterling only “needs” wool at night, I still can’t resist the warmth and complete cute factor of a pair of longies. I reach for Sterling’s Woollybottoms everyday regardless that he wears aios during the day. Wool provides a reliable waterproof barrier over aios and pockets even when unlanolized.
There are wool longies to fit any budget. My 2nd favorite type of wool is interlock (I’ll talk about my favorite in the next post). Prices range anywhere from $25 to $60. Here are some instock interlock longies on hyena cart right now.
Little Green Viking awesome wool. check out the customs category.
Wild Child Woolies when I used to frequent cloth diaper forums these were “the” thing. if that’s still true these may be sold out when you visit.
The Covered Caboose Good price for 2 pairs of longies. If you’d like to make your own she sells interlock wool in bulk.
Little Buddha Bottoms just one outfit but it is really cute and inexpensive

Longies are also available in knit or crochet. Because knitting and crochet take significantly more time to create the prices can be quite high. A pair of highly sought after knit longies can easily pull close to $200.
I know many moms who have the old lady next door or the knitting mom in LLL make a pair of longies for them. Someone who has a lot of experience knitting can often look at a pair of longies and recreate the pattern.
Knit wool on Hyena Cart:
Phew! That should leave you wishing you had more Paypal! A couple of those might not be there for you because I zero self control.
I’ll save recycled wool and how to care for wool for next post ;) Happy shopping!
One more note on knit wool longies, there are many different types of wool available. My favorite by a mile is BBR- Blackberry Ridge. It is the best all around for (in my humble opinion) durability, warmth, texture, and function.
