I just don't think I get it. Since when did polyester/rayon become absorbant? Is it just me??!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

WOW they want $7 to ship 4 diapers!! CRAZY!!<br><br>
I think the poly makes the rayon more durable; but yes rayon is very absorbent b/c it's wood pulp that's been chemically altered to make it porous.

Did you take a look at her other auctions???\<br><br>
This auction is for my Diapering terms e-book (it's 99 cents)<br><br>
Cloth diapering can be very tricky if you are new to it. There are so many different kinds out there, but which kind is best for you? I myself went through this alone; I spent over $200.00 on diapers before I found the right kind for me. I wasted my money on eBay for diapers that I just ended up selling to someone else. EBay is a very valuable place to look for diapers as long as you know what you want. This e-book will give descriptions and tips on all types of diapers. This will save you both time and money.<br><br>
The diaper terms book should be a load of fun. She is calling her contour dipes "one size shaped dipes"!<br><br>
Small lot of 12 One Size cloth Diapers<br><br>
Money back guarantee<br><br>
Up for Bid: 4 comfy-fit shaped diapers made by TL Care.<br><br>
Title is small lot of 12, then description say 4 diapers.<br><br>
Huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

I have these and they are definately not worth $10 a piece. They are nice, but I wouldn't pay more then for a CPF. and $7 for shipping, too much...but I guess it comes under the guise of Buyer beware...

actually they look like the dappi newborn contour i have which is worthless. the micro terry towels in the automotive at walmart i believe are polly/rayon, i wonder how many layers of birdseye <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> i personally wouldn't even pay 1 red dime for those, but that's me, a more informed cding than a year ago. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br><br>
edit to say, "HAHA, she's selling DAPPI vinyl covers, who wants to bet those awful one size dipes are DAPPI omg BUYER BEWARE"

I have a few diapers I have tried that have a poly/rayon core for absorbancy- it is a JOKE!! I only got them from the thrift store for cheap to see if they were worth hunting down more. The ones I have are Seedlings, which are basically the same as Indisposables. I stay far away from poly/rayon cause it is worthless IMO, it does not breathe, it does not absorb, it is pouffy, and it gets very soppy when wet.<br><br>
Actually Kooshies BASICS have the poly/rayon filling in them, you can always tell cause if you squeeze the centre of the dipe it is puffy and squishy. The Kooshies Ultra and Classics have soakers made of 100% cotton flannel, but layers of PUL.<br><br>
I do think it is ridiculous to aim for $25 and $7 shipping!! Yikes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

How absorbant can they be if they can dry in ten minutes? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: Maybe I'm just a moron, but I don't think any of my dipes dry that fast.

I dont know how absorbant those particular diapers ... but here is some info about rayon being absorbant:<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Rayon - A manufactured fiber composed of regenerated cellulose such as wood pulp (viscose rayon) or cotton linter (cupro rayon). Rayon yarn can be either spun or filament. Fabrics made of rayon tend to be soft with good drape, are highly absorbant, with low strength and abrasion resistance. High-wet modulus or polynosic rayon is a staple fiber (spun yarn) with a longer molecular chain for improved wet strength and abrasion resistance.<br><br>

<div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Unlike most man-made fibers, rayon is not synthetic. It is made from wood pulp, a naturally-occurring, cellulose-based raw material. As a result, rayon's properties are more similar to those of natural cellulosic fibers, such as cotton or linen, than those of thermoplastic, petroleum-based synthetic fibers such as nylon or polyester.<br><br>
....<br><br>
Rayon's cellulosic base contributes many properties similar to those of cotton or other natural cellulosic fibers. Rayon is moisture absorbent (more so than cotton), breathable, comfortable to wear, and easily dyed in vivid colors. It does not build up static electricity, nor will it pill unless the fabric is made from short, low-twist yarns. Rayon is comfortable, soft to the skin, and has moderate dry strength and abrasion resistance. Like other cellulosic fibers, it is not resilient, which means that it will wrinkle. Rayon withstands ironing temperatures slightly less than those of cotton. It may be attacked by silverfish and termites, but generally resists insect damage. It will mildew, but that generally is not a problem.<br><br><br><a href="http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/5000/5538.html" target="_blank">http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/5000/5538.html</a></td>
