Good news: Tonitex has agreed to take back the microfleece and give me a full refund after receiving the washed/dried swatches I sent them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/clap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="clap"><br><br>
They are, however, not entirely convinced that other buyers across North America are not happy with their new supplier's product (since, incredibly, NO ONE else has complained), and would be interested to hear from others who have complaints about the quality before they look at changing their supplier again.<br><br>
(A bit of history: Huntington Mills/Yukon, the original source, shut down last fall. Also, I do believe that our favorite online diaper-fabric stores here are still carrying the old, better supply from Tonitex, since one of them has told me on the D-M forum that she's had no bad feedback about it.)<br><br>
In making my case to Tonitex, I offered to forward to them a printout of the feedback I've solicited among other WAHMs who have found Tonitex's new micro to pill badly and deteriorate in softness. (I personally found it unusable after a number of diaper load washes---some colours more than others.) A number of you have responded already in my original thread. Please post again here, and address your words to the company, knowing that they will read it.<br><br>
Don't know about you, but I would SO love for them to switch to a better supplier, so there's once again another, more affordable alternative to Malden Mills. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"><br><br>
Let me hear from you please---we can do this!<br><br><i>(X-posted to Diaper-Making)</i>

I too purchased a fair amount of Tonitex microfleece from a co-op group and am entirely dissatisfied with the quality. Specifically, the fabric pills incredibly after washing. So much so that I will not be able to continue providing it to customers, even at a discounted rate as the appearance after washing is unacceptable. I was extremely disappointed and will be seeking a refund for the fabric as well.

I split a 10 yard order of white Tonitex with another wahmamma last fall. I'm not sure if it was before or after the switch, but I was also disappointed. To be honest, the stuff I get at Joanns stays much softer and doesn't pill. It's not *quite* as nice a MM since it's not the same on both sides (def. has a fuzzy "wrong" side) but the right side is wonderful and I love makin' dipes with it. Sorry Tonitex.. you can't compete!
