Question Why are there styrafoam balls in some of my PF's?? ***Added pics*

I was cutting open some of my CPFs to make prefitteds and found a bunch of tiny little styrafoam balls between the layers. What is the purpose of this?

Okay here are the best pics I could get for now, they are tiny little balls and between all the layers...

I think that the gerber ones may have some sort of other filler rather than layers of fabric, but i am not positive

Wowzers...what kind of PFs are they?

I don't know that I would like that...kind of defeats the purpose of cloth...KWIM?

Now I want to cut one of mine open and see

Okay...I'm really trying to restrain myself from cutting open a pf. I'm using the ones with the blue stitching (infant size), but I don't think it would be a size thing.

Actually, mine are IPFs. Are yours? Maybe it's an IPF vs. CPF thing?

Still...styrofoam

I don't know for sure but I think they are CPF's and I'm sure that it's styrafoam, it looks like the little balls in GAK if you know what that is

Nevermind...you said they were CPFs.

Not to ask a stupid question (I know you said the pic was blurry), but could it possibly be little cotton balls...like pilling?
