I'm actually living the diaper rite prefolds I just got! Every bit as comparable to the GMD in softness and quality!

You will get so many different answers on this one!

We use the Osocozy Better Fit prefolds and love them. They quilt up nicely and are super soft. This week I ordered a couple of bamboo prefolds from Nickis Diapers to try.

I felt the same way until I tried the Diaper Rite prefolds

Also I thought I would mention to the OP... not sure if you are looking for NB size but the Imagine NB prefold has fewer layers than the others. This could be an advantage or a disavantage depending on how you look at it... less bulk but also less absorbant. I used them and they worked just fine though!

I didn't know this about Imagines. Is this true w/all of their PFs or just the nb?

Re: Best prefold?

I just ordered some medium Diaper Rite prefolds and they are amazing! They are unbelievably soft and super quilty.

I had Imagine NB and GMD smalls... they aren't nearly as soft (but they are quilty and work just fine). Before I tried the DR prefolds I never understood all the fuss about soft prefolds - they all seemed pretty much the same to me. Now I get it... I wish I had had DR for my NB and Small prefolds too!

This is my experience, too. My Diaper Rites are my softest and by far my quiltiest (seriously...these things are egg-crate quilty). The pilling on all my prefolds has been pretty minimal except for a couple batches... I have a few pilly GMD larges and all my premium chinese prefolds from Cotton Babies were very pilly. Never had a pilly batch of DR's, though, and at this point that's most of my stash.

I still use my CD-friendly fabric softener in every load because all of them tend to get a bit rougher than I like over time. The initial softness of my Diaper Rites was off the charts, and I think that spoiled me a bit.

ETA: I also love that DR's aren't starting to get tags like Imagines and some GMD's now have. If I had tags on my prefolds, I'd probably have to line up all the tags when I'm stacking them on the changing table.
