If you had $200 to spend what diaper making fabrics would you buy

Give an assortment other than wool (I already bought some and am going to buy more)! I am just trying to figure out what I should use as outer layer, inner layer and soaker.

OCV!!! There's also a lot of cute woven prints out there like all of the Oogas. And just about anything bamboo is good too for all layers.

Mmmm. I technically dont only make diapers, in fact wetbags are just a tiny part of what I do. And I have 10 yards of PUL as is..sooooo

I'd want a snap press!!!

Oh yes, a snap press is a MUST
You can use it for sooooo many things.
I would get bamboo double terry. I love that.
But to make regular old diapers, I would get some bamboo fleece, velour and then the double terry for soakers and the hidden layer. Then I would get a couple yards of wool and make 3-4 covers.

cotton or bamboo fleece, cotton or bamboo velour, cute prints. I knit my covers so I'd probably not buy wool interlock. I'm really more loving the OCV I have as it wears so I'd def. stock up on that!
