Question How to tell if inserts are safe against skin?

I was given a friend's stash of Alva Baby and Nooya pockets with charcoal colored inserts. She also gave us a little variety of covers and I wondered how to know if these are safe against my babies skin in the covers or if I have to only use them in the pockets. I know that micro fiber shouldn't be used against his skin but honestly I'm unclear on if they are microfiber. I'm also unclear on if they are actual "charcoal" inserts or just grey. I'm not sure where she got them from. TIA!

Microfiber has that funny feel and bumpy look. As I understand it "charcoal" inserts are bamboo or cotton on the outside and MF core. Though it would be best to double check at the manufacturer sites.

Also including pictures might help, people here often like playing "guess that insert":-)

Lol I'm always happy to help any games!!

She said she was pretty sure it was charcoal.

Turns out I don't have enough posts yet for a link. So close! Soon.

I'd send you my dh if I could. He hates the feel of microfiber and can sit k his hand in a drawer of dish towels and find the microfiber one without looking and then promptly throw it away.

It's his super power.
