Our GMD Hemp Doublers are three layers of 55% hemp, 45% organically grown cotton. Hemp is very absorbent and technically more absorbent than cotton alone. I can't tell in real life and in my own testing, but that is what I am told. It's not the jersey kind, it's the thicker more absorbent fleeced kind. It’s mill washed so it won’t shrink too much. Small Hemp Doublers are 4 inches wide by 11 inches long before washing and the long are 3 inches longer but the same width, before washing. These are trim. Wonderful on infants, but also good on older babies when you need a bit more absorbency and don't want to add bulk. It is narrow, so not it's bulky between the legs. The narrowness also keeps the fit correct of many fitted diapers since it's narrow enough not to interfere with the fit of the leg openings. This is really a wonderful, high-value (very useful) item. If you buy these when baby is young, you can keep using them all the way to potty training for a truly excellent value. The size long gives you some more absorbency for an older baby. Made in the USA of imported material. Both the cotton and hemp are said to be organic, according to our fabric supplier, but at this time they are uncertified. Note: if you like to use borax a lot, choose 100% cotton instead of hemp. Made in the USA of imported material. All hemp is imported. There is no such thing as hemp that is made in the USA as far as I know. Most places leave off that tidbit about the fact that the hemp is imported even though cut and sewn in USA. Custom made for Green Mountain Diapers by a grandma for the past 12 years. Her sewing work and wonderful as always. Since there is just one person sewing these, sometimes we sell out of them faster than she can sew them so I apologize for the occasional times that they are out of stock. When that happens it is usually only for a short time so check back again soon.

Unlike the cotton Cloth-eez Doublers and Lightweight doublers, these doublers lay flat after washing. The Sherpa Doublers also lay flat nicely, but these are more absorbent than the Sherpa Doublers but the Sherpa is usually softer than the hemp. Everything has tradeoffs.

Love these in lieu of or even with microfiber inserts. Our 15 lb 6 week old (yes! Incredible I know) has been a heavy wetter from the second week. We Love using this blend of hemp/ cotton because it absorbs quickly and holds a lot of wetness without leaks! I've used them alone and with a microfiber insert but honestly I'm building my hemp/ cotton stash so that I can eliminate microfiber altogether.

We can leave the house without worrying about leaks. I also use these with prefolds at home and away with the same great results! The price is right so give them a try. They wash clean and drying time isn't bad either, about the same as my prefolds.

I started out with 6 of the small for newborn sizing and now I'm buying the large. I prefer this brand over baby kicks and hemp babies for the shape and overall quality and absorbency. They are thinner than microfiber but about as thick as the premium baby kicks. Hope that helps. Again I'd say skip the other brands and go with these. Happy Diapering!

Our son has to use diuretics at times and believe me, his diaper is SOAKED! We used to pack him pretty good with liners, doublers, and inserts to prevent leaks; however, after discovering these, never mind the fact they're dirt cheap, we were able to sell off all the other junk. These are so trim, absorbent, soft, great quality doublers! When our son was still a preemie, these worked amazingly as an insert. Now that he's a 9lb butterball, these add just the right amount of absorbency without the bulk.

I have 2 of each size. I love these, they are my favorite of all the inserts I have. I use the large one in her fitted night diaper. I use the small one for when I know we will be out of the house for awhile or with a flat. They are so soft and can go right against baby's skin. My baby has super sensitive skin and these are great for her. I plan to buy more!

Love these! Really absorbent but super trim. They are also really soft unlike other Hempstead I've tried so they can go right up against babies skin if need be.

Love these! I have folded some microfiber inserts into my daughter's flats that make her diaper really bulky. I have also just thrown one of these on top of a flat, next to her skin. These are soooo much more absorbent and less bulk! LOVE THEM!
