Diapers from t-shirts?

I was reading a swedish diapers site just seeing if any of the brands you all talk about are available here. They had a section on price comparison and said that to do an extreme budget option (they also had other diaper options AIO and pockets and fitteds), you would need

-24 old t-shirts
-3 rolls of merino wool
-wool detergent and lanolin

They also had a pdf (in swedsh but with pictures) which shows using old t-shirts to make a 'diaper' which you should put inserts inside of and a cover on the outside. 

What do you guys with babies who need cloth diapering think?

They also had these really cute Finnish diapers which tie.

    There is an American/English version of this.  Basically it's how to diaper your child (in cloth) for pennies, using old t-shirts (to basically make fitteds/contours) and old wool sweaters to make the covers.

    I think that it's a great workable solution for people who are on extremely tight budgets- I would just hope that those people are looking @ that site on a computer at the library for free, because that is how extreme it seems to me.

    I've heard of this but not tried it myself.  Would love to hear if anyone else has.

    And I'm guessing they probably list the wool because everyone in Sweden can knit. Seriousy... every girl I know.
