Re: Happy Hempy Fitted

Microfleece is made from polyester, so it's a synthetic fabric. But it offers the benefit of feeling dry even when a diaper is wet so for babies who can't handle wetness against their skin it's a great option. Microfleece doesn't suck moisture out of skin, it's not absorbent at all.

ETA -- to answer your other questions, I avoid microfiber definitely. It snags on my hands and gives me a creepy-fingernails-on-chalkboard kind of sensation. But microfleece feels nice and soft and several of my son's diapers have stay-dry microfleece inners. He needed stay-dry inners until after he was 18 months old, then he started being able to handle natural inners part-time.
