I think the idea is that if you wash MM microfleece with natural fibers, the microfleece will pill more, and more quickly. When I used FB with prefolds, my linings did pill pretty quickly, but it really wasn't an issue for me - microfleece *is* going to pill, no matter what you do. So I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. And doing 2 separate loads of diaper laundry would be a real PITA.

I use my FB only and they super soft with micro inserts. When we were mixing the FB got much pillier.

Now that we are back to prefolds no FB will be used.
I don't seperate execpt only use one or the other.

You shouldn't wash new prefolds with FBs - the natural oils on the prefolds will coat the fleece and cause repelling issues.

Once your prefolds are nicely primed (or not new!), go ahead and throw them all in together.

HTHs!

I wash them together every day, and while my fleece has pilled a little, I would expect it to after being washed nearly daily for 5 months.
