What fleece do I need to make stay dry liners?

I'm tired of buying sposies for night. I end up having to change them anyway, so I'm thinking adding a fleece liner to our Bigger Weeds should do the trick and give me a chance to start using our woolies again.

But, I know nothing about non-natural fabrics. I don't want anything thick, but definitely something that will hold up well. I'm planning on going to Joann's next week so any help would be much appreciated.

I use the non pill fleece from Joann's and cut into 5 x 11 rectangles.

I bought a yard of micro fleece from my local big box fabric store. It's nice and thin so it won't add any bulk. Probably way more fleece then I'll ever need. I cut 12 4 x 10 liners for the new born stage and have enough fabric left to do at least 24 full sized liners. I only plan on using them only at night, I want DS to feel wet during the day so hopefully he'll PL earlier.

The thinnest you can fine, you really don't have to worry about it holding up, the fleece liners I made for DD four years ago are still in my rotation. If you want luxury though a micro chamois or micro fleece is going to be thinnest and pill the least.

I bought a $3 fleece blanket from Walmart (in the baby section), and just cut it to fit our diapers. I've been using them for 3 years now, with 3 kids, so I'd say it was worth the $3
