Has anyone tried a wool liner for staydry?

I just saw on gmd's website that they have a wool stay dry liner. Has anyone tried this? Ds can't do synthetic stay-dry materials b/c he seems allergic. I'm interested but wondering if maybe I can make my own from some leftover cashmere and merino sweaters I have. Would this work? I'm afraid it might repell though I hear from online research that it doesn't. Any insight here?

Here's the link. It's the last one on there.

My bestie's LO is allergic to everything but wool and she's made him some liners from recycled wool. I think they work fine. She'll probably see this thread and post.

I bought and used some seconds from babee green $4@ or i got 3/$10 but shipping was high (I emailed asking if they'd reduce shipping since small item & they did). They worked fine just extra steps to rinse (not lanolze). I had a hard time washing mine right and felted and shrunk mine so they bunched up and did not seem comfortable but worked fine

Thanks for the input! I have some pieces of a super soft cashmere sweater left over from a set of longies I made...Might make some and try it! It can't hurt!

Cashmere doesn't feel quite as dry as regular wool IMO.

But I suppose this would work as long as it doesn't repel the pee.... If you start getting leaks out the legs that'd be why
