Yes I like stay-dry microfleece inners for diapers (and I like fleece covers, too ). Like you, I'm not such a fan of polyester for clothing. I like 100% cotton, or an 80/20 blend.

But for diapers, there are practical reasons to use polyester fleece. For my son, the stay-dry factor is a benefit. And polyester fleece covers are more breathable than PUL (PUL gives him rashes) so I choose poly fleece and wool for covers. Full time wool is not a practical solution for me, personally, so I don't feel bad or guilty not using all-natural wool covers all the time.
Hi I'm Melanie! I make EmotiBums FLEECE
