i participated in the co-op and we were able to buy ours separate.Try emailing alva and checking with them. I don't know how it compares to the microfiber ones at all since I didn't bother ordering any sorry!

HERE is the link to katedanzers photobucket (hopefully she doesn't mind) it. if you click on the photo it will tell you which one is minky. None of alvas items need covers

Plus he's only 6 weeks so I'd want the smaller version anyway.

ETA: Do the minky ones wick at all?
I actually haven't compared me fleece with with suede ones yet. It was posted in the coop section to only wash these guys on luke warm water and not hot because someone else had an issue with theirs de-laminating.

My LO is wearing a minky now..only for 30 mins though. No wicking yet but i will let you know!

Thanks Heidi! It was such a nice surprise! We just thought our time of babies was over...had just made peace with that and surprise! I'm due beginning of March and excited to be shopping for diapers again!

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva

OP - I got that print for my DS and I think it is totally boyish! Although I'd stick it on a girl too! But it is way more boyish than girly.

I got my Alva diapers in the mail yesterday and have them washing now. One of them I'm not sure what to do with because the dye is transferring all over the diaper and even on to the snaps. So that one is siting in it's plastic waiting for me to figure out what to do with it.

I'll get pictures of my DS in one once they are dry!

I'm a little worried about washing these as they say to wash on cold. I really don't want to wash on cold, but if I do wash on hot, then I'd be sad to have them delaminate....

I'm not so sure about these anymore - I have a hard time with needing a different wash routine for just a handful of diapers :/.

This is exactly what I was coming on here to talk about!! I really don't want them to delaminate, but I wash all my diapers on hot.... so what does everyone else do? When I pre-washed them (they are drying on the rack right now), I threw them in after the hot wash, during the 1st cold rinse (still plenty of soap to be had then). Not sure if this will work when they've been pooped in though....

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva

I plan on washing mine on hot until I see signs of damage. Hopefully there won't be any. Actually they've already been washed on hot b/c I threw them in with the other dipes as soon as I got them.

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva

I bought my first Alva pockets several months ago off eBay (I had never heard of them and was taking a big leap). I was so pleased with them! I'm so glad to see that other mommas are discovering their value, too! They're super cheap and super cute! They're an A-mazing diaper for any/every family
