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.

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 organic cotton and retains it's natural cotton oils and natural tan color. 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 acheive the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers.
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.
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. Made in Pakistan.
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.
Washed these three times before using. Folding them the short way now and these last forever - even overnight. Bulky, but to be expected from a prefold.
These are beautifully made but I use a natural detergent but after at least 20 washes they are still not absorbent. Please help. I cant wait to use these. They are really nice, I recommend.
Thank you for your review! We have contacted you directly via email to address your questions about prepping. The short answer is keep washing on hot with detergent until a dry diaper quickly absorbs. For hot prep cycles, run the hot water tap closest to the sink first until the room temp or cool water from the pipes is gone and the water is running hot. This ensures that the water getting into your machine is truly hot. You can also wash the diapers along with every load of laundry you are doing for your family and they will be ready before you know it. Always feel free to contact us directly by email to firstname.lastname@example.org We are always happy to help!
We love the cloth-eez prefold diapers! They’re perfect with the Thirsties duo wrap. They clean well and absorb well. So happy to have found these for our cloth diapering needs.
Because those cute little burp bibs are just that. Prefolded cloth diapers are the best for burping, placing under infant’s head for tummy time, keeping in baby bag for emergency changing surface, and, eventually, washing the car. This dozen is being given to a couple using disposables, but would be handy if the realization hits at 11:30 pm that they don’t have enough disposable diapers to make it through the night.
