I am a new knitter and am planning on knitting a wool soaker for my son. I'd like to order the Peruvian Highland wool from elann, but I'm wondering if it might be too scratchy for a baby. I'm making this http://www.xanga.com/The_1932_soaker...9648/item.html btw, and she recommends the peruvian wool, but I just want to make sure before I order. What do you all think?
I'm not sure if it would be too scratchy, but I would recommend using superwash wool. That way you won't have to hand-wash it (since it'll get washed a LOT ). Superwash wool won't felt in the washing machine.
