What kind of wool do you like your cloth pads backed with?

I am planning on doing a line of wool backed cloth pads, and am wondering what type of wool do you prefer your pads backed with? I have used interlock in the past, but it makes a bulkier pad and I try to keep MotherMoonPads as thin as possible.

Thanks!

Although I wouldn't use wool MCs, IF I had to then I'd prefer something like the wool of an Imse Vimse Bumpy wrap. I think it's boiled wool or something. No stretch, VERY trim, does a good job at keeping wetness where it belongs. HTHs, I felt bad looking but not answering

I like wool but in this case I'd be wary. It'd have to be 100% machine washable and dry able.
