Wool or fleece? Why?

I'm trying a SB'ish magic diaper (as soon as it gets here) for over night. I'd like to branch out and try a non-pull cover.

Wool is looking a little pricey, but have seen that some moms use fleece. What's the difference in function? Are they both breathable?

I'm almost as overwhelmed as when I started CD'ing!!!! HELP ME!!!!

God bless,

The nice thing about fleece is you can wash it with anything. Wool, of course, needs to be hand washed. I really like both so I can't tell you which to try. Honestly, you should try both. I know...more money. I love our wool soakers but I just got an awesome fleece soaker from Precious Dignity that works REALLY great. I'm not sure about the difference in breathability. Maybe someone else can answer that?

I have only used fleece and I love it although it is synthetic. Wool of course would be better since it is natural and you can get/make recycled from old sweaters, etc. I just haven't. Anyway, fleece is super cheap, readily available, and is a snap to wash. Just throw it in with the regular laundry. I think you need more fleece covers than you would wool since it does get stinky faster, since it's polyester.

I am not sure about breathability either since it is synthetic, but my very sensitive son is not bothered by it. We only use it for covers and only a few times a week at that.

Re: Wool or fleece? Why?

I just had a thread about wool vs. fleece with a poll - of course I wasn't talking about just overnight, but here it is

I think I am going to try to get some of both.
