I use any 100% wool yarn that isn't scratchy on my face.

Quoting Mother of Broccoli.:" Are they all receiving blankets? I loved using flats, but B outgrew all the ones we had :( Next kid is gonna be in flats and prefolds. Nice and cheap :P "

All of those are. I have a few that aren't, but they're ugly and thinner, so they don't work as well. Now they're burp cloths. I prefer flats over pockets, I probably only paid 40ish dollars for all the ones I have. TJ Maxx usually has them in packs of 4 for 5$ or 5 for 6$, and I got a bunch at my baby shower. Folding them sucks though. I toss them in the dryer for a few minutes after line drying to soften them up, then I fold them. Takes forever and sometimes I have to de-wrinkle them again halfway through or they won't fold right. I prefer to have them all folded and ready to go, or DD squirms away without a diaper while I'm folding :roll: :lol:

Yeah folding is a pain in the ass. I always folded ours right after they came out of the dryer and they took forever!
I love how trim flats are, too. And you got some great deals on your stash :D

My mom always complains about how bulky pockets are, but how difficult flats are. Can't please that woman, lol. And hell yeah I did :lol: If you include the new stuff I just bought, I've spent under 250 on my stash. Way cheaper than sposies, we spent 100 a month at LEAST before we switched.

I could have easily spent way more, if I had the money to. I justify buying new ones by saying they double as pants :wink:
