Decided to go all natural fibers for summer

I hate microfiber. It feels gross and I don't like it. I loved my organic prefolds, but my daughter outgrew them and I've been too cheap to replace them.

I've decided to do prefolds and wool. I wanted to do fitteds, but they aren't in my budget.

Can anyone give me any wool or prefolds advice?

Also, I want to use pins, the ones that are all metal (I'm trying to eliminate plastic in my life) Where can I buy them? I've had no luck finding them. I put an ISO ad up, do maybe that will pan out.

Thanks

I saw some all-metal pins on cottonbabies I believe. As for wool.. Scour the BST for some used wool to build up your stash. Realistically, 3-4 pieces of wool is enough for one child, but a lot of people catch the woolie bug and want to buy a lot.

Prefolds wise, a lot of people love GMD. They also make very inexpensive workhorse fitted diapers if you really want to try fitteds.

But I agree about the microfiber.. Just thinking of the texture is gross!

I cannot get GMD in Canada and I'm bummed about it! I'll check out lovely bums.
