m bumping this up, because I also want to know if there is a certain type of fleece you have to use for liners. I got some black fleece for soakers, and its not very stretchy, so was wondering if i could use it for liners instead

See that confuses me, because what about fleece soakers, if fleece liners let the wee through, wont a fleece soaker just let the wee through then :-?

i *think* the idea is that is you pour copious amounts of water on fleece, it will go through -eg wee onto a liner.
but it lets small amounts of wetness evaporate into the air, so if you have a fitted nappy on, you would only be having the outer of the nappy slightky damp touching the fleece, so this will evaporate off rather than run through. if the outer of the nappy gets wet, the fleece will become damp.

WSS. And I think most people make soakers out of thicker fleece too and generally include an extra layer in the wetzone for added protection.

fleece is hydrophobic, which means it will push water away (into the bamboo, which is lovely and absorbent). You can use any fleece for liners, but no-pill is preferred, so they don't look 'shabby' really quickly.

Fleece comes in many thicknesses. 100wt (weight) is quite thin, and 400wt is usually used on fleece soakers.

Fleece can also suffer compression leaking, (often when you're in a car seat for a long time) as it isn't waterproof, so if the bamboo 'fills up' it will start to leach back if that makes sense.
