Sizes overlap and are approximate. Unbleached may shrink (quilt up) a little more than white or organic. Shrinkage is variable.
*Expect some variation. Washer style can affect final fully shrunk size. Front load washers or any style washer that pushes the fibers together during prepping (initial preparation washes) might shrink the cotton during prepping a bit more than a washer style that pulls on the fibers the fibers. That's ok and expected. Shrinkage is planned in to the sizes. A traditional top load machine usually pulls items down along the agitator, which is a pulling motion on the fibers. The lift-drop-curl motion of a front load machine pushes the fibers together. The motion style can affect the initial shrinkage but the amount of cotton remains the same with any style machine, thus the absorbency is the same. They don't keep shrinking after the initial prep cycles have been completed. We do not treat the cotton with silicone or such chemicals. It really is real cotton, which is great. That is what you want and need in a diaper. Prefolds fabric is a product from a grown plant, and might have some variations even from one diaper to the next. That is the nature of this lovely fabric. Our prefold fabric is the best that there is. Cloth-eez prefold fabric is known and loved as the best for over 17 years.
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.
Prices vary by size, available in dozens or individually. Please visit the Detailed Information link to learn more.
Also in preemie purple edge, not pictured.

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 are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first. Well-loved. In the sizes that fit your baby. Measurements listed are approximate and shrinkage will vary which is normal for this kind of fabric. Edge color/tone will vary. Be sure to look at the pictures on babies.
This "white" version is made of conventional cotton. It is a creamy white because we do not use optical brighteners on the cotton. They are not chlorine bleached, either. They are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO TEX® and meet CPSIA standards or course, too (every baby product on our site meets CPSIA standards). Because our white is less processed than your typical bright white cotton, they feel softer. Color-coded edge stitching makes it easy to find the right size diaper in your pile. These beautiful classic diapers are so nice!
Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds" are the gold standard for prefold diapers for over a dozen years! Award winning, top quality, heavyweight 100 % cotton twill diapers are so very well made. They will stand up to repeated washings. Don’t overlook this very economical way to diaper! It works very well. Plus, they wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". It’s very easy to Snappi fasten or pin these diapers on babies who don’t yet roll over. But you don't have to pin 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. 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 are exclusive to GMD and are not available anywhere else, and are not marketed under any other brand name but Cloth-eez®. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
Please wash a few times before first use. 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 strongly suggest fragrance-free choices.
Please be sure to see this on a baby to learn more and pick your correct size. Sizes overlap and are approximate.
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.
We just sized up from the size small and my baby is almost 5 months old. We prefer to wrap and Snappi the prefolds rather than pad folding so we wanted a size that would wrap around him for a long time. These still require added layers of absorbency at night but it’s easy enough to tuck that in a diaper. These are significantly larger than the size small but are still able to fit comfortably on our baby so we’re very pleased with this purchase.
These diapers are excellent quality--thick cotton, very durable, very absorbent; should last for many washes. It is true that the diapers shrink substantially during pre-wash; we thought that we'd sized up, but it looks like we bought the size that fits right now. If in doubt, go bigger!
