preferred fabric (hemp, cotton, bamboo, etc) under longies??

after reading all the raves about wool, ive decided to order my first pair of longies.

i need recommendations on fitteds to go under the longies....i've had a lot trouble finding the right size pockets/aios for my toddler (he is 16 months, 29" and 18lbs).

i prefer snaps to aplix and something that wicks moisture fairly well.

and i could use some spam on where to buy longies.

thanks!

kirsten

I love the Snug to fits. They come in aplix or snaps! greenmountaindiapers.com carries them!

What are your preffered fabrics for fitteds to under longies?
Just wondering if there are fabrics/brands that are more likely to keep the wool dry?

Thanks!

Kirsten

Anything that is absorbent enough will keep the wool from getting too wet. Overnight, NOTHING is going to keep the wool dry; however, as heavy as Logan wets, and as damp as the insides of our wool gets, once it's dry it's fresh as it was before. Unless, that is, it's due for a washing; we've got a large enough wool collection that we only have to wash every 3 weeks or so, though (unless I've been using just a couple pieces instead of rotating).

Check out Ooey's "Instock Longies" post; it may've dropped off the first page. She listed a bunch that are available! GMWW is very nice, and very affordable. She has an etsy store; here's a link...

I prefer either organic cotton (fleece or velour) or hemp; they work better for my heavy wetter.
