We can dry nappies outside, even in Swansea (she says, looking out of the window and wondering if it is going to rain). I took a few pockets, muslin and terry squares and some pul wraps on holiday to the IOW 3 years ago and managed to wash and dry them on indoor airers every day.
I used prefolds on #1 which was very unsuccessful and ended up using sposies However, I used muslin squares and Motherease Airflow wraps on #2 and #3 as newborns and then moved on to Tots Bots fitteds and Airflows with #2 and terry squares for #3. I didn't discover wool wraps until they were older but would definitely use them if I had a baby now (very unlikely tho lol).
Pockets are always handy for someone who is not keen on folding squares or quick trips out and the squares can be used as inserts.
You will find out, when baby is here, what nappies best suit. Pockets never worked on my eldest but they were great on my other 2.
Good luck and have fun with your nappy making
