Re: Fleece or wool?

Both work well- but wool is so wonderful! Natural and sustainable. I use wool predominantly but throw on fleece if I wash/lanolize all the wool at the same time or if the cover is going to get in contact with the ground/floor.
Make sure you get diapering fleece though! There is a huge difference between fleeces. I use only windpro fleece.

Re: Fleece or wool?

I prefer wool but I do have some fleece that I like. I love fleece pajamas because they keep the sheets dry even if they are a little damp. It has to be good fleece though because I've had some that didn't work at all for us but now I have some longies from a DS mama that don't get stinky and we never have leaks.

I do prefer wool interlock though. It's natural and so soft and squishy and can go longer between washing. All but a couple pieces we have bought used since there are so many great deals on FSOT.

Re: Fleece or wool?

Thanks everyone. I think I will give both a try. Is interlock the more 'felted' looking vs the knitted? If so I like the looks of the interlock. I just want to find something soft and comfortable for night time and around the house. My son is a fatty in the thighs and his pockets give him red marks.

I have both kinds. They work exactly the same for us, though Interlock is not as squishy soft as knit.
If you want to try interlock Woollybottoms are very affordable and come in lots of colors. My DDs woollybottoms are not tight on the thighs at all.

Re: Fleece or wool?

I prefer wool, we have allergies to synthetics. It really is what works best for you though, maybe try one of each.

Re: Fleece or wool?

I prefer wool to fleece. I like that the wool can cinch around the waist. And I like that wool can be aired out easily. Fleece is easy to wash, and cheap, but wool can be just as affordable and easy to wash. Doesn't really take much to wash and lanolize a wool item.
