Is it possible to stop fleece from bobbling?
How do you get rid of the bobbles.
Any tips?

I think it's pretty much one of those things you have to live with.

I tend to wash all my fleece and minkee wraps and pockets separately from the nappy wash and i find this make a huge difference to the bobbling :D Not sure why but it seems to work on the new ones i have :D

So basically i have two nappy washes- 1 wash is all my pockets and wraps and the other is all my fitteds and wipes.

Looking at them now i've woken up a bit more I think it might be minky thats bobbled. :oops: New to all this....lol
I ordered some WN off here and they are quite bad. I should have asked for pics. I have tried to shave all the bobbles off and i'm quite happy with them now.
I will remember that separate wash tip, as I've ordered quite a few new ones too.

Thanx

I think it is something that you have to accept happens to nappies. I have noticed that the inner fleece of one nappy has bobbled a lot more than the others I have owned, must be the type of fleece used. Oh, and if the velcro isn't closed up and sticks to other items in the wash it can cause a bit of bobbling if it sticks.
