New product at Winkydinks!


I'm very excited to offer this new line of soakers, made from 89% recycled pop bottles! Fleece diaper covers are great - they are reusable, soft, and super cute. However, some cloth diaper advocates steer clear from them because they are made with a chemically processed fiber...polyester. This fabric made by Malden Mills is made from a yarn that is composed of 89% post consumer soda pop bottles. They perform equal to, or better than, my soakers made from 100% polyester (and only need a single layer to do so), and have an eco-friendly twist to them!

You can see my custom listing for details and to order! My only gripe is that it only is available in a few solid colors...




If you're interested in how they make the recycled fibers (not specific to fleece), check out this video from "How It's Made"!

I totally love the eco-friendly side of these new covers. Also, I enjoy the fun autumn colors. Yes, more variety in color would be nice, but I'm sure that will come in time. Until then, brown goes with everything!
