Wicking jersey is a type of athletic wicking fabric. Our wicking jersey with birdseye dimples is great for lining pocket diapers, all-in-two diapers and diaper covers, and also to make stay-dry inserts.
Wicking jersey pulls moisture away from the skin and into the absorbent part of the diaper.
Durable and easy to care for, quick to dry. Does not retain stains. This fabric is thinner than microfleece or suedecloth, has a soft silky feel, and will stretch across the width.
Care Machine wash warm, tumble dry.
Sewing Do not prewash, does not shrink; Use regular, universal, or knits needle; Sew diapers with polyester thread to prevent wicking. This athletic wicking jersey is a knit with birdseye dimples. This means it has small dimples across the face of the fabric. The back side is smooth. Both sides can touch the skin and it will wick in either direction.
Great for the Florida heat!

I was tempted to try something a little more plush and softer like a velour, but after making a test diaper out of similar fabrics I thought they the layers would be soooo hot in the summer. The athletic fabric is light and easy to sew, and best of all there no bulk and I feel it helps keep my little one cooler in during the hot days outside.

I like this fabric. It is light weight and soft. However my baby doesnt like it. It is not feel dry enough for him. The fabric is thin and breathable, but because of this you can still feel the moisture through it. I love this color and wish my baby liked this fabric more because I love it. It is pretty stretchy, but not as difficult to sew with as I thought it would be.
Love the color

Matches perfectly with one of the PUL prints I just purchased and made the diaper look even better
