How many wool soakers for 1 child?

Since I'm new to wool I have to admit I'm already addicted and every time I check out my favorite eBay seller 'woolybottoms' I see new cute soakers that I want for Mason.
So far I've got 2 soakers (one is thicker, suitable for night time), one pair of capris (from another seller) and I see even more soakers that I'd like to have.
So, what's the average recommended # on soakers/shorties for one child?

Gimme reasons to buy more, mamas! LOL

Well, I'm new to this; but I feel I have the right amount of covers for now.

I have two pull on wool soakers for night time. That way if one needs to air out or be washed/lanolized; I have a back up.

For day I have two wool jersey covers I love, a pair of longies, and I have a fleece cover I like a lot too. I'm in the process of knitting a wool cover out of merino wool. I'm almost done!

Isn't wool wonderful?

In Christ, Bridget

Re: How many wool soakers for 1 child?

well, I think we have six or seven, but that is because I am not so good at remembering to wash them, and they all need to be washed at the same time, so I truly do go through them all.

Hi, my name is Shannon and I am addicted to wool.
We have 6-7 longies, 5-6 shorts, 5-6 soakers and 5-6 covers. I make a lot of them and buy a lot off of FSOT. She does wear them as clothes, so they get dirty faster, but I still have to many maybe.....

I say be as many as you can. He's only little once.

I use my wool covers as my ds's pants when it's hot. I buy neutral covers so they look really cute with any t-shirt. So instead of buying a bunch of shorts I use wool covers.

Buy Buy Buy!!!!
