Best super absorbent cloth pads

I'm looking for some new cloth pads that are super absorbent. I've looked on Etsy but there are so many brands! Can anyone recommend some great absorbent pads?

Re: Best super absorbent cloth pads

I don't like to use pads, but I am expecting a baby in July and will need to use them postpartum... so I'm following this thread!

Re: Best super absorbent cloth pads

I make cloth pads backed with wool. I find that is a much better leak barrier than PUL and it also doubles as an absorber. The pads are thick and soft. the only downside of wool backing is you have to hang dry them and they can take up to 12hrs to dry. If you are usuing them post partum I recommend getting 10 inches or longer.

I have wool backed OCV ones from Just Fussy, and I've always thrown them in the dryer whenever we're not line drying. No problems at all, I've had them for a few years. I think the wool is boiled wool.
