For those of you who make recycled soakers....

Would silk work? I'm digging through my closet and came across a pretty midnight blue 100% silk dress. It is woven (I thought it was wool or acrylic). Would silk work?

Oh good! Well, it is a natural fabric - that is what got me thinking..........

Read this:

http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/...htm#silkliners

and

Silk Diaper Liners - These are to be used as needed to prevent or help heal a rash. Silk diaper liners are a wonderful and natural alternative to fleece liners. They still act as a 1 way barrier against wetness just as fleece does pulling moisture away from your baby's skin and keeping their bottom healthy and dry, yet our raw silk retains some of the natural sericin with antibacterial properties to help sooth your baby's skin. 10 is usually a good number to keep.

Silk supposedly works as a natural "stay dry liner" and is said to be especially helpful for rashes caused by yeast, although I haven't tried it yet and also heard it doesn't really stay dry as long as poly fleece does. It's supposed to be really good for mama pads to stop yeast infections, too. Silk isn't really waterproof like wool, so I wouldn't make a cover out of it, though, but liners may be great!
