Your favorite covers over flats?

I'm new to flats, but LOVE 'EM! I've only been using them coverless so I can change often (to practice folding and pinning), but now I'm thinking I'd like to use them with covers too.

I know lots of mamas use wool, but DH does the diaper laundry and he's saying no wool. I'm ok with pul, but don't want it to touch DS, and I'd like the cover to be soft and flexible. For example, I think the Bummis covers are too stiff.

Any suggestions?

They look nice and soft, and no pul touching baby the ones I love, but you have to find them here on FSOT because they are discontinued are Blueberry minky covers

Mostly wool, but Fishnoodles and Bummis Super Brites for PUL.

I'm definitely going to keep those Baby BeeHinds on my list. I love rainbow colors.

I didn't realize the minky covers were disco'd. Sad!

fleece soakers, shorties, longies. and any pull on cover (ol' school). I never put a wrap style cover over snappid flats or PFs. It seems too tight on the hips.

The Imse Vimse organic covers are nice. They are soft and flexible, and full cut enough to go over fastened flats.

I like Thirsties for PUL covers. The GroVia shells/covers are very soft and have a mesh lining on the inside so no PUL touches the babies skin.
Niji and Niky both sell cotton covers but they wouldn't be good for over night. The wool covers that they sell you can machine wash and hang up to dry.

WEEHUGGERS!!!!! These are the best covers I've tried!!!! I love every thing about them!! I love the fit, trimness, prints, quality and the mama behind the company is super sweet and helpful!! They're also made in the U.S! I love the bamboo flaps because only soft natural material is touching baby's skin HTH!!!
