Hello i am semi new to owning pigs i have been doing research and stuff since 2016 but i just got my first pigs back in January and i am looking to make my own fleece liners for my cage and i have been looking into what fabric types would work best for my boys, i know a lot of people use the uhaul pads but i can't get any right now i was looking into Diaper cloth instead mainly this one and was wondering if it was any good?

I’ve never used diaper flannel so I don’t know how thick it is. I use a layer of fleece (anti-pill plush) on top of a washable incontinence bed pad. I don’t sew them together, it’s easier to wash and dry if the layers are separate.

Then I made wee pads for the corners of the cage, since that’s where they like to go. The pads are about the size of a placemat. Top is fleece, middle is a microfiber towel or thin kitchen towel, and bottom is just woven broadcloth. I sew these together and they wash and dry nice. For a hay pile, us the broadcloth side up and the hay won’t stick.
