Cloth Diapers?

I got some fleece covers to join my PUL ones, but I'm unsure of how to care for them? Do I need to prewash the fleece as well? Can I wash them with other diapers or do they need special care like wool?
TIA

  • As a rule I prewash everything, but you only need to wash the fleece once since it is synthetic. They don't need any special care like wool or other natural fibers.

  • What is synthetic about it? I thought fleece was a mixture of wool and cotton?

  • oops, just looked it up and I've been mistaken...fleece is a mixture of wool and polyester or rayon...I learned something new today :)
