Our Sherpa Diapers are 100% cotton. Usually when you find sherpa fabric it is a polyester blend but ours is all cotton. It is two layers of a thick stretchy sherpa knit. We don't make them in size newborn because it is too thick for a newborn baby. Since it is more dense than prefold fabric it can be hard to get pins through it. If you pin them, keep your pins sharp and lubricate them by poking them into a bar of soap to help them slide through the fabric more easily. These may be best for trifolding or as a night layer under a quick-absorbing Cloth-eez doubler made of prefold fabric. Because it is dense it acts a lot like hemp acts. It doesn't absorb as quickly as the more open, looser weave of twill prefold fabric, birdseye or muslin, but it is a thirsty fabric. It is squishy and stretchy but not as bendy as prefold fabric. Try the large as a newborn changing pad. It is fun to try something different for a change. Write a review and let people know what you think of it and how you use it.
Please wash several times before first use. 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 Cloth-eez diapers. Keep it simple. Use what you would normally use on your regular household laundry and we strongly suggest fragrance free choices for all laundry.
Note: The pictures were taken AFTER washing so that you see how they actually look in real life. Buy in packs of 6 for best value. We also offer them individually in case you want to just try one first to see if you like it.
The small size is comparable to a small yellow edge prefold.
The Medium size bigger and wider than a medium red edge prefold. It is 1 inch shorter than a large brown edge prefold.
The Large size is very big and is almost as big as an XL green edge prefold.
Small: Before washing 14.25" x 14". After washing about 13" x 13".
Medium: Before washing 15.25" x 17". After washing about 15" x 16".
Large: Before washing 15" x 19.5". After washing about 15" x 18" (large sold out)

I bought one to try it out and it worked so nice. I would love to get more. I purchased this as an alternative to a bulky night diaper set up. I used the medium size and a hemp doubler with a wool cover and it worked so nice. I have been eyeing these for a while now.
I call these the grandpa diapers. Grandpa loves to babysit. Grandpa is overwhelmed by modern cloth diapers. Grandpa sometimes forgets to check a diaper as frequently as he should. Trifold medium sherpa, slap into a PUL cover, snap on and boom - no fail diaper. I've tried to put these on as a prefold, and I'm not into it. They're a little stiff, but more importantly, the Snappi doesn't grip well. They are, however, the most amazing trifold diapers of all time. Less bulky and way more absorbent than the standard prefolds. Definitely a little stiffer than a standard prefold, but not so much that the baby will notice. These are also my preferred traveling diapers. I don't want to deal with inserts potentially falling on the floor or flats coming unfolded while changing my baby in a gas station bathroom. I also don't want to deal with potential leaks in the car seat. These are bulletproof, one piece of fabric, and very easy and fast to assemble. You need at least a few of these in your stash for those moments when you need an easy mega diaper fast.
