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.
I’ve been using these for overnights. Feel like very good quality and they have solved the leaks so far. I will probably buy more for when the little one gets older and will need doublers more frequently.
I love using these in unison with regular inserts. They offer the perfect amount of absorbency that there are no leaks, yet they are not too bulky and dry much nicer than other hemp inserts on the market. I am a repeat buyer.
I have a heavy wetter 6 month old. I like to add one of these for his night time diaper or when we will be out for extra protection. I need to order more for sure!
I absolutely love these! I bought four initially to test out and they quickly became a favorite. Just bought 30 more and feel more confident about cloth diapering with them. I pair them with a clotheez insert also sold on this site and have no problems.
Love the extra boost of absorbency for our overnight setup! As always, the best quality!
