Anyone have these? I was thinking of getting a few, but the price is a bit high. Are they worth it? What makes these better than other prefolds? Also, which is better - birdseye or twill?

I don't have any because I don't use PFs anymore, but I know that one advantage that they have over other PFs is that they are organic.<br><br>
From what other people have said, they sound really nice. If I still used PFs I'd definitely buy some. I'd probably get the birdseye because I LOVE organic cotton birdseye-- it's so soft! And surprisingly absorbent considering how thin it is. A diaper can have lots of layers of birdseye and still be trim while being very absorbent. I might buy one twill diaper, too, though -- just to compare. Some people have said that they like the twill better.<br><br>
And I think it is so cool that they are colorgrown!!<br><br>
I'm guessing that they would end up being one of my favorite PFs.<br><br>
Sorry if all this conjecture isn't very helpful. The only things I can tell you for sure are that they are organic and that other people love them.

I have both and prefer the twill. It is so much softer and a bit stretchy. And it absorbs like crazy. The birdseye is rougher than my CPFs and IPFs and very thick. It is a great night diaper and nice, but nothing like the twill.<br><br>
My night diaper is the twill TBO with an infant IPF and wool cover. It works great!<br><br>
If I could afford it I would have an entire stash of the twill, but since I can make my own sherpa and velour PFs, I have just part of a stash of them. But they are worth it if you have the money. I would rather have TBO PFs than any fitted out there.

I have had the twill and the birdseye and agree that the twill is much softer.<br><br>
The advantages over other pfs that I have noticed are:<br>
~they brown (but I don't like the way the brown shows through the covers and makes them look dirty.)<br>
~they are organic<br>
~they are a bit more absorbant<br><br>
Do I think they are worth $8? No. I do think they are worth more than the average pf but not $8. Maybe $4 or $5. But that is just me.
