It depends what you want. I made my wipes using a payer of terry towelling (like towels) and a layer of flannelette from the fabric store.

Specialty diaper making fabrics - bamboo velour, PUL etc I get online, often from Diaperswappers FSOT.

You can also make diapers from more mundane fabric that you could buy at fabricland (flannelette etc)

I've bought from Wazoodle:
wipe blanks in cotton sherpa, bamboo jersey and flannel
Soaker blanks in french terry (iirc)
PUL cuts

I was very happy with both service and quality - enough that I will put in another order when I need more supplies.

IIRC - If I remember correctly.

And I second Wazoodle - they have a good selection but I don't think they have the super luxe diaper fabrics - bamboo velour etc
