I have used t-shirts mostly for the outer layer of fabric and the one next to baby's bum, for comfort, with toweling (facecloths, old tea towels etc) as the absorbent core. Fleece blankets can be chopped up to make the inner layer of nappy, not absorbent but wicks moisture away from the skin just like fleece liners.

Have you seen these?

That 2nd link refers to wool soakers as 'butt sweaters' :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho:
(I assume that is what they are talking about anyway!)
