Stock Status: In stock as listed. Novice is not available in organic white.
UNIQUE FABRIC VERSION ONLY FROM CLOTH-EEZ. Made of organic cotton, we have already removed most of natural cotton oils for easier prepping*. Certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex. True quality! Chlorine-free whitened without optical brighteners. Fewer prep cycles needed since the natural unbleached cotton oils have already been removed - but not with chlorine bleach. They are peroxide bathed (similar to Oxi Clean) to remove the natural oils. Why this version? Lovely organic without a zillion prepping cycles!
*Prepping means initial wash cycles before first use. You still have to wash them through a few times, like you would with any new product, but these don't need as many cycles as the unbleached organic version need before they are ready use on the baby. Thus, these are faster to prep ("prep" means prepare).
Replace your stinky microfiber inserts with these. Measure your inserts and compare them to the shrunk measurements on the size chart. Novice light green edge is the most popular size for stuffing in one-size pocket diapers. For fully unsnapped rise, Intermediate light blue edge is good but some still prefer novice when trimness is the priority. These diapers are thick, so the Novice and Intermediate tend to give the best fit and are still much more absorbent than microfiber inserts. You'll love them stuffed or just placed in the pocket with the cotton next to baby. That's fast, easy and absorbs quickly for no repelling issues at all. Try it!
As with all clothing, size recommendations are suggestions and not guaranteed. If unsure of size please wash only one or two; unwashed items are returnable but washed items are not.
Also available in organic unbleached
Also available in conventional cotton in white
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 and enjoy using.
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 organic cotton. We purchase certified organic cotton which is then woven to our specifications, then cut, folded and sewn to become these beautiful diapers. Only the cotton itself is organic, not the entire process. We are proud to achieve the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers. This white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brighteners. Fewer preparation wash cycles are needed since we have already removed the natural cotton oils. The organic unbleached version still has the natural cotton oils and is tan in color.
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 by 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. You will find the "prefold love" with Cloth-eez® prefolds. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
Why choose which version? You like organic but either prefer the white color or not want to do all the many preparation cycles that the unbleached organic version require.
Please wash several times before first use. This is called prepping. Instructions are included in your order. 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. Made responsibly in Pakistan

Awesome quality and thoughtful customer service. As first time parents, new to the world of cloth diapering, we appreciated the instructions included in our order of how to wash and care for the prefolds. Thank you GMD for providing affordable and durable products. I look forward to buying organic products from you all.
Thank you, Lydia, for your kind words!
We bought a dozen of these before our baby was born. We used them for so many things. I was surprised that I used all dozen so often. I bought other diapers for the newborn stage so I never used these as diapers but I have tested their absorbency many times in other situations and they worked very well. I would buy again in a heartbeat.
