Insert help!

Ok Mamas, this is my dilemma... I bought some no pill fleece from Joanne's and did the water test and it is not soaking through. Does this mean it is not a good option as a top layer of my insert/soakers for my AI2s I am making I bought about 3 yds and now not sure what to do with it. Could it be used as a hidden layer?

I have some zorb II I bought from a nice mama here on DS and would like your opinions on what works best and have luck with great absorbency! Would the zorb II with zorb in between 2layers be enough? I really like the way the best bottoms soakers work, fleece sewn onto microfiber, but I think the microfiber will be too much for my machine. I have a Brother CE8080, not a serger

I use anti-pill fleece from Joann to make liners for all my dipes. They function very well although I haven't really done a water test per se with them. They should be good as a top layer for your soakers.

No pill fleece makes excellent diaper covers. I wouldn't use it as a soaker layer.

Re: Insert help!

I use that kind of fleece for covers/outside, or you could use a hidden layer to make a slightly more water-resistant fitted. I have some trainers with fleece as the liner, but it's thinner than the kind at Joann's and my toddler has a pretty forceful flow to make it through the fleece.

For zorb soakers, my toddler needs at least 2 layers of Zorb + the outside sandwich layers (I don't have Zorb II here, but it's the same Zorb, just pre-sandwhiched between bamboo). If the rest of your diaper has enough absorbency then you could probably just use the one layer, but if not, you'll want more than 1 layer I think.
