I'm totally new to this, so I could be very wrong, but I believe it is microfiber. I've heard mixed reviews about microfiber--some say it's very absorbent, but that it holds in smells. I don't personally know yet--I'll find out in late October
About the stink...yes, be careful with the double wash/double rinse. They aren't kidding. But...I have only had that problem with the AIO's. The pockets that you can pull out the microfiber insert don't seem to have that problem, probably since they get washed/rinsed better.
What I want to know...where do they get that suedecloth for the lining? I have been all over town looking at suedecloth and there is nothing quite as light and thin...if anyone knows, I would love to hear it.
Suedecloth is a 100% poly fabric that is great for wicking moisture away from baby. A lot of diapers use microfleece - they both serve the same purpose. Suedecloth is a little smoother, microfleece can sometimes get pilly. There might be down sides to suedcloth - for example, mine got a little snagged by my velcro. Both suedecloth and microfleece shoult work well.
Does anyone know what kind of fabric the soaker part of a BumGenius is? TIA!
Speaking of Bum Genius, my friend heard a little birdy say that they are doing a project with BabyLegs? I haven't really heard much about babylegs except that they are really handy and popular in the cloth diaper world. I'm a mom to be and interested in cloth diapering....should i know more about BabyLegs?
