"super" flannel won't come clean!

Hello!
I've made several diapers using double napped "super flannel" and now I have a slight problem... The poop won't wash out!
I've washed this diaper 3 times and it still isn't coming clean. I know it's not just a stain because when I get my nose close it still stinks and the area feels gritty to the touch. It's engrained down in the nap of the fabric.
How can I get this diaper clean? Has anyone else had this problem?
I want to make myself some more quick dry fitteds (I use the QSFW pattern) using flannel, but if this is going to be a re accuring problem I'm going to have to re-think it.
Any suggestions?

Once I get the poop out, I suppose I could use washable liners on top of the diapers, but what is the best materiel to use?

I don't know what that fabric is but I would do a soak in hot water and detergent and then give it a hand scrub with an old tooth brush. Then wash again in the washer.

"Super" flannel is what Walmart calls their diaper flannel. It's basically the same stuff that flannel pajama's are made of but it's fuzzy on both sides. I'll try to soaking idea, thanks!
