Fabric for WNNN - what's your preference?

Postby quinnsfluffybum » Thu Nov 05, 2009 8:46 pm

Next on my shopping list for Quinn is a WNNN. But.......which fabric is softest (& scrummiest :giggle: ) for squidgy night time comfort?

I did think about getting just the plain bamboo outer, but is bamboo or cotton velour likely to stay softer in our hard water? And are the cotton jersey outers soft enough for bedtimes? I just can't decide...

Definitely BV outer with minkee inner. TBH no nappy will stay soft in hard water but I've found bamboo velour stays softer far longer than bamboo terry.

I agree with Louise and BV outers are more absorbent than cotten as well xx

Yep.
Ours are just banboo terry on the outside because I figure nobody sees them and as long as the inside is soft against her skin, I'm happy, but the BV stays much softer and squidgier for sure.

Ours are bamboo terry ('cos I'm tight!!) and they've stayed pretty soft so far. I was more concerned with having a stretchy material on the outside, to ensure a good fit.

I had no idea you could get minkee outer as it's not one of the options. Hmmm...I am a sucker for minkee cos it's so soft.

Think I'll draw the line at adding embroidery though (unless I win the Lotto some point soon) cos like Ellie said, no one will see them anyway!
