Quoting motherofboys:" How well does fleece work? I make my own knit, crochet and sewn soakers out of recycled wool, but I've never tried fleece. Fleece would be a bit easier to wash and dry, but how well does it perform?"
ugh I just typed a huge thing and it refreshed and I lost it
okay...no they are not as bulletproof as wool so I use them during the day and I use a wool longie at night. I personally find them to be more breathe-able and I like that I can feel the dampness through them but when I take them off theyre dry (unless you have a super pee). And no you cannot resuse them if they get soaked but I find discount fleece for liek 2 to 4 bucks and can make 2 longies out of 1 yard or 4 soakers out of 1 yard.....for 4 bucks... so I have a TON of them to be able to use. So you can get an idea I have been using the same fleece longie since yesterday afternoon, rotated between when she has fitteds on or pockets on. It does not smell like pee at all and has not been soaked or I would swap out for another one... Like I said I use wool at night but if my wools not available I throw fleece over a pocket or over a fitted with a cover to get some "extra" help with leaks. Works awesome for me.... Also my soakers have an extra "wetzone" (double up) in the middle of them but the longies dont. Only because I dont have a pattern fo rit but im sure I could do it if I tried.
I find that people who use wool are DIEHARD wool fans... I personally am more diehard fleece, its more cost effective, I can afford more and get super cute prints, I own a ton more and I like washing them...woolies can gross me out sometimes even though I know the lanolin does its job...not washing them can freak me out... I love fleece <3 Also the only wool I use is from recycled sweaters, I just can't justify spending 50 on a pair of longies. I stalk my thrift store for when they have 50% of clothing and buy a 100% wool sweater for a 1.00 and make longies out of them.
