Cheaper by the dozen. The price of 11 individual diapers is the same as 1 dozen, which is like getting 1 free diaper when you buy in dozens.

Cloth-eez® Prefolds actually fit. A diaper that fits works best. One-size-fits-all really doesn't "fit all". Does a diaper that fits a 2 year old really fit your newborn? Nope. The right size for the right age and weight works best! Diapers that fit and wash easily are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first. Well-loved.
These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. Additionally, this version of the prefold diapers is made of organically grown cotton. This means that the cotton used to make these diapers was grown organically and certified.
Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds". These are hard-to-find, top quality, heavyweight 100 % cotton twill diapers. These are the real thing, and so very well made. They are far superior to the store bought kind, and will stand up to repeated washings. Be realistic about the longevity of any diapering item and don't be wowed but unrealistic claims. They are durable and last very well but not forever. They wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". The twill weave allows pins to slide through them easily without making holes in the fabric. But you don't have to fasten them. You can just fold the diaper in thirds and place it in a wrap style cover. You will not be disappointed in these wonderful, versatile diapers. There are many brands of prefolds on the market, but we feel these are the very best fabric, 100% Indian cotton, 4-8-4 ply, with the strongest edge stitching available, and custom sized for prefold perfection. These diapers are exclusive to GMD and are not available anywhere else, and are not marketed under any other brand name but Cloth-eez®. You will find the "prefold love" with Cloth-eez® prefolds. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
How to choose which version? The organic version is made of organically grown unbleached cotton and may be the most durable but the differences are slight among the kinds. It can be hard to tell them apart. The main difference is in the way the cotton was grown in the field. There is something nice and enjoyable about organically grown.
Please wash several times before first use. Expect to wash them through quite a few preparation cycles to wash off the natural cotton oils before full absorbency is reached. This "prepping" (4 or more wash cycles) is a one-time thing. Link to more washing information.
Please note that you can use any mainstream laundry detergent on cotton diapers. You do not need to purchase "special for cloth diapers" detergents. We do not sell them and they are not needed on prefolds or Workhorse diapers. Keep it simple. Use what you would normally use on your regular household laundry. Use whatever you happen to like that works in your water, but we do strongly suggest fragrance-free versions for use around a baby.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
I just ordered another dozen of the size Medium unbleached prefolds because both my daughters have worn that size primarily for over a year and my older ones were starting to show the wear. With kid #3 on the way, I figure another dozen will be well-used. Neither of my girls ever made it to the large size before they were potty trained (they are on the smaller side and we just fold the diapers into the covers). The older ones can still be used for sure; they are just starting to fray at the edges a bit, but remain highly absorbent.
These have been an absolute lifesaver. I use them for everything from burp rags to makeshift breastpads. They're particularly great for when my daughter has a rash but she can't be naked, I just put it on without a cover and this way it still breathes and I know immediately that she needs a change. The only issue I have is that some of the newborn prefolds shrunk too much to be fastened so I had to use them padfolded. It's only some of them and I've used the same wash routine for them all and dry on low heat so I'm not sure what happened, but either way they're still very useful.
Thank you for your review! We are sorry you experienced some excess shrinkage. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any product issues and we are happy to help. Shrinkage does vary but they should not shrink much smaller than the measurements provided on our chart here: https://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/pages/prefold-size-reference-chart?_pos=2&_sid=a5bc80d19&_ss=r
I purchased another set of inserts and loved those!!! So I ordered a next size up for my daughter and these are so much thinner despite being for a heavier weight group. They get the job done but don’t like how big they are and thin.
Thank you for your review. The Medium unbleached may seem or appear thinner than the Small white prefolds because different batches of cotton will shrink and quilt up differently. The Small do seem thicker because they are smaller so the thickness is more consolidated. The layering is the same, however, so the absorbency per square inch will be the same. Glad they are getting the job done!
These are high quaality wear for a long time.
