If you're talking hemp, it's hemp terry that's snappi-able, BUT it's b/c the snappi catches on the loops, so it will eventually tear the terry up. Other than that, i think birdseye weave fabrics are? and whatever prefolds are made out of, I"m not much help am I :LOL

Well, here's what I would like to do. I just 2 Kissaluv's contours, and after seeing them I realize I can make them myself SOOOO easily. I have sherpa here already. If I were to order and use birdseye, they would lose the stretch. I guess I would have to test it out on the sherpa I have. THough I realize it might compromise the material eventually (but for the $2 a yard I paid, does it matter? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">)

I would think it would work on sherpa, b/c it does have loops like terry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Sherpa may be 2 thin you may catch the whole thing in one snag and ruin the diaper on the first try <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I guess it depends on the sherpa, the stuff I have is thicker than terry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: But I haven't tried using a snappi on it either lol

Sorry everytime I have ordered sherpa it has been super thin like paper thin... But, I did get my hands on some organic sherpa that was super thick and nice that would work well with a snappi I would think.. But, anything that is thin I would think it would just rip it..<br><br>

Wow, maybe I just got lucky :LOL I have a whole roll of the stuff and it's pretty thick compared to the hemp terry and hemp fleece I have, but I don't have any other experience with sherpa to compare it to. I guess I'll have to do that when I order organic sherpa in a few weeks :LOL<br><br>
I guess if you don't mind killing a sherpa dipe you can try it :LOL
