Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold

Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold

  (2 Reviews)

Prefolds are a very basic nappy, they do not have the function and design of modern cloth nappies.  Most prefolds are traditionally made of cotton but these prefolds are made of super Thirstie hemp blend.

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 the prefold provides 12 total layers of thirsty hemp cotton! Our custom hemp jersey is as soft as your favorite t-shirt .

Hemp is an ideal diaper fabric as it displays antimicrobial properties, is many times more durable, and is more absorbent than cotton. In fact, our 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 diaper with a hefty amount of absorbing power.

Thirsties Care Guide

  • Wash all nappies once before use. Prewash any hemp products separately for at least 3 times. The hemp will reach full absorency 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

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
Monday, 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.
