I like minkee as a stay dry liner. I think it does work well. And it has the advantage of not looking tired as quickly as fleece does.

I prefer it to fleece too. We use minkee liners on our fitteds too. :D

Sorry to butt-in but i was just wondering if you use it as a liner instead of fleece could you cut it up in the same way. I mean would it not fray like fleece or would you need to hem it iyswim :-?

I quite fancy trying something new and my fleece liners are looking a bit tired :widesmile:

That's what WNs do, just rectanges of minkee!

They do roll at the edges, quite annoying, my WNs one haven't yet, but I made one myself that has!

Ok cool, I think you've all sold it to me! Would red minkee inside a white cuddlesoft show through do you think?

Personally, I wouldn't put a really dark colour with a really light colour. I have so many things that started off black with a white trim, but end up black with a grey trim because of the colour run.

Uhhg, that's a shame, I'd hate to have nappies with grey bits on :-?
