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. 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.
As always the service was top notch and my order was shipped super fast.
These doublers are very well made but unfortunately not very absorbent. They hold far, far less than my Thirsties hemp doublers and are instead similar to cotton doublers I have in terms of absorption and drying time. They'll get good use, but can't stand up to nap time or overnights like I had hoped.
Purchased this product as an add on for overnight diapers. Am using them now with Charlie Bananas and they are working wonderfully. Not a single leak for 12 hrs!
I use these everyday, usually folded in half for nighttime in the wet zone with a workhorse and wool cover. They’re very trim and absorbent. Easy to wash.
Great to use with my flats at night. Absorbs really well.
