Does anyone know what the thinnest prefold is? What about flannel prefolds-anyone sell those? I am looking for a thinner yet good option-I am using IPFS-love the absrobency, but hate the bulk. I have some CPFS-they are thinner, but I am wondering if there is yet a thinner option that is still good?

Hmmm...I know Bumkins makes Terry/Flannel flats, I'm just not sure who carries them...

Other than that, I would say your best bet is a thin contour. Bumkins Foldover diapers are really thin flannel contours!

I don't think flannel is that great for absorbancy. You night want to try regular prefolds or hemp.

I agree, flannel isn't very absorbant. I'd go with regular prefolds (4-6-4's) I think you can get chinese, baby's textiles and euro's.
