Thirsties Hemp Duo Prefold Overview

Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are no ordinary prefold!

Ordinary reusable nappy prefolds can be bulky and take a long time to dry. When hung to dry, they can become stiff and crunchy in hard water areas. In addition, most prefolds are 8 layers thick in the middle, which makes it difficult to clean all layers of the diaper thoroughly. 

INSTEAD Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are designed to allow water and air to flow through the 2 layer thick panels, permitting thorough cleansing with little effort and quick drying times.  

When trifolded (folded into three) the prefold provides 12 total layers of thirsty hemp cotton!

Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are made from a custom hemp jersey is as soft as your favourite t-shirt and it's knitted with love in the USA.

Thirsties Hemp

  • Hemp is an ideal nappy fabric as it displays antimicrobial properties,
  • Hemp is many times more durable than cotton
  • Hemp is more absorbent than cotton. - In fact, Thirsties hemp jersey is 25% more absorbent than a prefold of the same weight made from cotton alone!

This translates into a very trim and effective cloth nappy with a hefty amount of absorbing power.



  • Size 1: 12.5" x13"
  • Size 2: 14" x16"

How do I use it?

Prefolds are ultra easy to use and the Duo hemp prefold is no different.

Simply fold the prefold as required and lay inside a waterproof cover such as the Thirsties Duo Cover.

You will find other prefold nappy folds in our folding guide.

Thirsties Care Guide

  • Wash all nappies once before use. Prewash any hemp products separately for at least 3 times. The hemp will reach full absorbency after approximately 8 washes.
  • Wash dark colours separately
  • Wash with non-bio powder
  • No harsh stain removers or bleach. They may cause irritation and can damage the waterproof membrane
  • Don't use pastes of nappy powder directly applied to nappies as this is too concentrated.
  • No fabric softeners. They will reduce absorbency.
  • Rinse nappies prior to main wash. Or Prewash (small amount of detergent optional) but this will subject the nappies to more 'wear and tear'
  • Main wash with max wash temperature 60 degrees.
  • Line dry. Can be tumble dried on low, but ideally no more than once a month to prevent premature deterioration to the nappy.
  • If using a nappy cream always use a nappy liner - ideally a disposable paper liner.

I love these
02 June 2021  | 

I fell in love with these after spending a month without a washing machine and found these were super easy to hand wash and dried much quicker than boosters and inserts.these are highly absorbent and super soft which is unusual for hemp. Highly recommend

nice product
25 November 2019  | 

bought 4 of these to use fastened around baby, but never managed to fasten them with a nippa effectively (the nippa wouldn't stick quite well). So now they're being used pad folded as a night-time booster inside our cotton or hemp fitteds. They feel nice and soft against baby's skin and are the most absorbent prefolds we've got. The three stars are because you'd expect a prefold to be a bit more versatile and allow fastening.
