Yes, I know. I have several different types. None are less stretchy and the jersey backed seems the stretchiest.

I've never found two layers to be needed, but I've never used the lighter weights. Just the 300 and the windpro

Re: Windpro Fleece? (Or fleece for covers)

I would use one layer, 300 is very thick though IMO, I made my first lightweight windpro fleece cover today. I am going to use it tomorrow and will report back.

Re: Windpro Fleece? (Or fleece for covers)

So far I am really loving my lightweight single layer foe bound windpro cover. It is slightly slightly damp after a pee but everything is dry!

You can buy small amounts of Polartec or Windpro from Green Acre Designs.

(and if you don't need them today, I'll be launching a store soon, selling diaper cuts of many fleeces ... I've got the fleece but the website isn't quite ready ...)


So may i know what your store called? Would love to get some windpro diaper cut!

Re: Windpro Fleece? (Or fleece for covers)

We have Joanne's anti-pill stuff, and it is definitely thin with just one layer. We do still use it during the day when I'm changing her really quickly. Everything else we use is Polartec 200 wt. We just use one layer, and have never had a problem, even at night. It will compression leak--but actually I've only had that problem when she's sitting in her high chair. She doesn't have anything that won't compression leak in that darn high chair though. That thing is hard as a rock I guess. But just sitting down anywhere else, we don't have issues. HTH.

And, MyNameIsMama that store sounds so cool! I'm so glad you're doing that!

They called me and told me that they didn't have electric blue, even after I ordered it and it is still listed online. I am thinking that their website does not reflect their current stock. Their shipping was a little slow too but I would still order from them again.
thanks for this. i've contemplated ordering from them, but i'm always nervous about doing business with "new people" lol
