Hemp/cotton doublers provide additional absorbency. Made in USA.

Size Small, 4x11 inches  

Size Long,  4x14 inches

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 do not shrink much in width; they shrink about 1 to 1.5 inches in length. 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. Cut and sewn 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). Custom made for Green Mountain Diapers by a grandma for over 12 years. Her sewing work is  wonderful.  Since there is just one person sewing these we sometimes sell out of them faster than she can sew them. I apologize for the occasional times that they are out of stock. When this happens it is usually only for a short time so check back again soon.

Unlike the cotton Cloth-eez Doublers these doublers lay flat after washing. The Sherpa Doublers also lay flat nicely, but these are more absorbent than the Sherpa Doublers.  The Sherpa is usually softer than the hemp however.  Everything has trade-offs. These Hemp Doublers are also available in a Stay-Dry version.

Made in the USA from domestic and imported materials. 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton. Edge stitch is synthetic for strength.

Natural fibers change with use and washing.   Hemp/cotton is fluffy when new but that will change with washing.  Hemp is a dense material which makes it more absorbent than cotton.  It will look like the one on the left in this picture after a while.

Each size and kind has unique edge color stitching for easy identification.

Small is white/white.

Long is pink/blue.

Love the hemp doublers!

Ordered just a few initially to try these out, but they are worth every penny and ordered more! We replaced microfiber with them in our pocket diapers and they are oh so absorbent and trim as inserts!

Just what we needed!

These are fantastic! Heavy wetter 6 month old was getting drenched with just a flat, a flat plus half flat was too bulky, and still would get drenched no matter how quickly we changed her! One of these makes such a difference, two gets us through 6+ hours at night which is so nice. I really appreciate the wicking of the material. It keeps her skin much more dry, which is just better overall for her. I decided to purchase the large, and am really glad I skipped the small. Large is perfect at 6 months, and I imagine would be just fine for smaller babies too, and will be useful through to potty training. I wish we had purchased these sooner, but just didn’t consider them for whatever reason until she was getting so wet at changes that we were feeling a bit defeated with our flats and not sure what to do. We still go through a lot of diaper changes so purchased 4 dozen doublers (we also have 4 dozen flats, and 6 dozen cloth wipes) end end up washing about half the stash every day or two. So glad I purchased enough so that we never run out! Would recommend just getting these at the start of cloth diapering. I actually think if we had better wetness control early on, we would have been able to avoid some unnecessary rashes.

Great absorbency

I love these doublers! I used them for my first kid, and I got some more for my new baby. They work best when folded into a prefold or placed underneath a Workhorse, but they add a ton of absorbency without a lot of bulk.

Very absorbent boosters for nighttime

Absorbent little doublers. I like to add one to a large birdseye flat in the kite fold or neat fold for nighttime. Never any leaks!

Love these

These hemp doublers are the best! They are absorbent, trim, and stay flat. I have several of them, and use them for added absorbancy in my night time diapers.
