Yup, the fabric is softer, but there are three or four places that seem like the laminate has "melted." I really don't know how else to describe it. At those melted spots, there are small holes (like maybe a baby's pinky nail in size). It almost looks as if a hot iron might have touched those spots, but the fabric was fine before I put it in the wash. My washer and dryer are the type that's supposed to be kind to clothes, so if the procare can't deal with a little prewash, I really wonder how it's going to stand up to diaper washing.
I'm wondering, do I go ahead and make a diaper with this stuff? I'd hate to waste my other materials if this is going to fall apart on me. I'm really so disappointed.
On a happy note - my Kool-Aid dyed, Very Baby Snug Wrap wool soakers are looking pretty cool.
