Longies wool nappy cover, made to order. This listing is for plain colour longies/leggings 100% wool, cloth nappy cover. These are made using the Packer Pants design by WoollyWumpkins and for which I have a cottage licence to make and sell http://www.woollywumpkins.co.uk/. This listing is a budget option where I will use non hand dyed yarn, most probably Cascade 220, which still give you a multitude of colour choices.
The photographs show various options available, including knee details, ruffle ankles and back pockets. Please select your leg style in the menu, PLEASE NOTE: if you would like knee details I will require a measurement to the centre of your child’s knee as well as a full leg inseam length.
The price is the full price for each size made and the listing is for one pair of Packer Pants in a size of your choice. Sizes are dependent on your baby’s measurements so please measure and bear this in mind when ordering. Sizes are as follows:
X-Small = 13 inch waist, hips and rise up to 16″ (measured over a cloth nappy)
Small =14 inch waist, hips and rise up to 19″
Medium = 16 inch waist, hips and rise up to 22″
Large = 18inch waist, hips and rise up to 23.5″
X-Large = 20 inch waist, hips and rise up to 25″.
These could also be made from cotton or non animal fibre yarns as an alternative choice. PLEASE NOTE: if you require cotton you will need to specify this at checkout or I will use 100% wool as detailed above. Cotton yarn WILL NOT work as a waterproof cloth nappy/diaper cover.
Please add a measurement for inside leg in the comments at checkout, plus hip and rise measurements for a custom fit. If you have any questions please convo me 😀
Please state colour of yarn you would like at checkout. I can use a few colours in one pair if you would like, again just let me know. I can also include in this listing a trim at waist and ankles using leftovers of my hand dyed yarn.
I can also make Packer Pants with a customers own yarn, but again please convo me as these will be slightly cheaper than the full price here 😀
Wool longies are best made to you baby’s measurements for use over cloth nappies. If you aren’t using them over cloth nappies please let me know in the comments. For an average age the above sizes fit see below:

S – 0-5 months/up to 12lb
M – 4-15 months/up to 20lb

These sizes are based on averages taken from items I’ve made over the years and my own experience. If you toddler isn’t wearing nappies at all you may be able to size down, but please leave me measurements for waist, hips and inseam in the comments. Alternatively convo me through Etsy before ordering to discuss sizes.

I am the owner and founder of Indigosky2Knit. I have been knitting since my eldest sister announced her first pregnancy when I was just 7 years old. I2K was first conceived as an idea while I knitted for my own first baby 24 years later.
Hi I am Davina and I own and run Indigosky2Knit. I opened amost 6 years ago on April 17th 2012. I live in the gorgeous market town of Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire with my gardener husband and 3 kids.
I love knitting and have over 30 years experience under my belt meaning I offer quality items you can trust. I rekindled my love for knitting in 2009 when my own first baby was born. I decided shortly after my second came along in 2011 that it was time I started making for others too. After making a couple of gifts for friends they exclaimed how lovely everything was and encouraged me to set up and sell some of what I make.
I am passionate about getting yarn crafts appreciated for the work involved and have a preference for natural fibres. With this in mind most of my items are made with little synthetic fibres, although they are good for hard-wearing footwear items and easy care kids clothes. In particular I avoid solely acrylic yarn as it is highly flammable and is best avoided for baby and children’s items. I am however, aware of various needs like offering vegan options and allergy sufferers, so if you see something you like but would prefer it made with cotton or bamboo then please just let me know!
As a cloth nappy user I’d discovered a love of pure wool, which makes excellent nappy covers, adorable clothing you can use over a cloth nappy, but that keeps your baby dry too. I therefore make and offer information and support on using wool nappy covers.
I have a love of natural fibres, and especially hand dyed yarns. I make many items to order so you can choose to have things made exactly as you’d like them, colours, styles, everything. I run an Etsy store where I take most of my orders.
I absolutely love making squishy woolly things for others. It is my aim to make hand knitted items affordable for all, so if you’re on a budget I’m here to help.
I originally started out in April 2009 with just a Facebook page, which cn still be found here at www.facebook.com/indigosky2k, but as of January 2014 all orders are taken exclusively through Etsy (www.indigosky2Knit.etsy.com). There are custom slots listed for all items and more added as and when I complete items. There is also a collection of ready made items. If you see something made previously and would like me to replicate it then please just drop me a message here or on Etsy. I Am willing to make anything on a Your Yarn My Needles (YYMN) basis including adult clothing, please just convo me for availability of slots if there are non listed on the shop.
