A fleece diaper cover is a great choice when what you want is a durable, easy to wash, but breathable diaper cover.
The Fleece Diaper Cover
Fleece is made from polyester that is processed in a way to make a tight-knit, super soft material.
Wetness will not be soaked up by the fleece. Instead, any moisture will travel through it and quickly evaporate into the air. So, if your diaper underneath is very wet, moisture can wick through to clothing. It is a good idea to use a very absorbent diaper underneath, especially at night. Fleece is not waterproof! Though some covers do come with a waterproof coating.
Fleece covers are easy to wash, they just go straight into the wash with your diapers. They will dry quickly and can handle high water temperatures.
