Sherpa fleece?

So I have some sherpa fleece I bought along time ago and never got around to using.Can I make liners to go in my newborn prefolds or does it need to be a differn't kind of fleece?

Also what size would I want in my prefolds(newborns & smalls)

Thanks

Kerrie

Re: Sherpa fleece?

Are you wanting to add absorption (like a doubler) or are you wanting something for a stay-dry feel.

Doubler option - I would think that as long as the sherpa fleece is cotton (or mostly cotton) it should be fine. If you want to make doublers for NB/SM dipes then maybe about 4x12, maybe 2-4 layers. You could always do a 2-layer bifold doubler, make it 4x24 or so and fold in half for 4 layers and easier drying.

Stay-Dry option - You might want to make them a little bigger than above for good coverage, you could 4x14 or 5x14 and just fold the front a bit in a NB dipe.

Yeah, it needs to be cotton for doublers, if it is poly fleece, then it would be for covers.
