Wink Osocozy PF thread colors & dye advice

I purchased 1 dz NB prefolds & 2 dz infant prefolds on FSOT. Received them today and am having a hard time figuring out which are which without actually measuring. There are 3 different thread colors (natural, green, & blue or purple-can't recall-they're in the wash right now). Does anyone know how to tell the difference?

I know that there really isn't THAT big of a difference but I would like to separate them out and have the NBs at the top of the pile so they get used before being outgrown.

Also, most of them have been dyed previously which is now faded and have some degree of staining. What is the best dye to use in order to get a vibrate color? Will the staining or previous dye job effect the outcome (besides still being stained and having to use a darker dye to color over the previously dyed ones)?

Thanks

I know the infant size Better Fits have a purple edge. Not sure about the green or natural.

Re: Osocozy PF thread colors & dye advice

If they are the dipes from the diaper service, I don't think they are the better fit ones. I could be wrong about that, though. I have some CPFs that I *think* are osocozy prefolds. (I bought them in a All Together Baby co-op several years ago.) The thread is dark green and I think they are infant size. Sorry, that was a whole lot of "I think", so probably not much help.

Re: Osocozy PF thread colors & dye advice

Just got them out of the wash and looked at them better. I have a mix of natural, green, blue, and purple thread. All suppose to be either NB or infant. It's super difficult to even tell which ones are which when you hold them together. Weird!

Guess I should've just gotten 3 dz infants so I don't drive myself crazy trying to figure it out.
