Hemp is a natural, super absorbent material which makes it ideal for boosting cloth nappies to increase absorbency. As hemp is a bit rough, it is mixed with cotton to make it softer.
* 4 layers of hemp and cotton fleece
* Dimensions: 31 cm length x 13 cm width (approximate measurement post washes - hemp like other natural fibres will slightly shrink)
Hemp inserts need to be prepped to get rid of natural oils, fluff up the fibres and increase the absorbency. Run a full cycle wash with a small amount of detergent. Repeat process, without detergent for 4-5 washes (no need to dry in between). If short of time, soak inserts overnight. Your inserts will reach their full absorbency after about 8-10 washes.
Wash temperature: Ideal is 30 to 45 degrees (no more than 60 deg Celsius)
Drying: Line dry or tumble dry on cool or LOWEST heat setting. Very hot temperatures can cause your hemp or bamboo inserts to overly shrink. Improper care will void the warranty of your inserts.
Tip: For heavy wetters or leaking nappies, try layering inserts. Use one microfibre (fast-absorbing) insert and one hemp insert underneath (very absorbent) inside your pocket nappies.
