<a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v205/pleutim/prefolds.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...m/prefolds.jpg</a><br><br>
I was at Value Village this morning looking for covers and PUL coats. There were no diapers OR covers to be had. Just these prefolds, 11 in total. It wasn't a bargain ($1.49 each) but I took them all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Not sure why! I have no idea what the fabric is. They look to be brand new and feel nice and thick in the centre. The outer thirds are 2 layers and I don't know what the middle third is. It's like a soaker sewn between the outer two layers. I'm thinking I'll make fitteds out of them (if they're big enough - 14x20) by putting a cute print on the outside and just serging it together. If not, then I'll give them to my mom to put in her next box to Africa - her and another girl who has a sister in missions over there do up boxes of clothes, diapers, food, crutches, supplies, etc.<br><br>
Can anyone tell from the picture what the fabric might be? There are no indicators anywhere as to what brand/content these are. Kinda looks like a loose twill but I wouldn't call it gauze at all.<br><br>
Actually - they MAY have been a good deal. 11 x $1.49 is about $16.39 or something. Don't a dozen sell for $20 or $22 or thereabouts on ebay? Either way, I don't care if I am out the money. They should be good for <span style="text-decoration:underline;">something</span>.

Didn't find any PUL either but did pick up two wool sweaters. One is striped and would make cute longies but I don't think I'd wear them on him. I'll probably felt them a bit and just make covers.

It looks like a kind of birds eye weave. Have you washed them up to see if they quilt up at all? Take a pick of the whole thing and show us. I'm interested. You know when I was at Target of all places, last year they had real prefolds in their automotive section. It was like 5 for $5 and I should have gotten them to see how they quilted up. I think it was 6 layers in the middle but not sure.<br><br>
How were the diapers labelled that you bought?

I haven't washed them yet, Danielle. I took the picture as soon as I got home. Could I just throw them in a regular load with a few towels etc and wash like normal? I won't be using them for a few weeks and I can wash them again without much detergent and no softener.<br><br>
There was no labeling or anything on the diapers themselves or on the tag. Just the price.
