Size Small, 4x11 inches

Our GMD Hemp Doublers are three layers of 55% hemp, 45% organically grown cotton. Hemp is very absorbent and technically more absorbent than cotton alone. I can't tell in real life and in my own testing, but that is what I am told. It's not the jersey kind, it's the thicker more absorbent fleeced kind.

It’s mill washed so it won’t shrink too much. Small Hemp Doublers are 4 inches wide by 11 inches long before washing and the Long are 3 inches longer but the same width, before washing. These do not shrink much in width; they shrink about 1 to 1.5 inches in length. These are trim. Wonderful on infants, but also good on older babies when you need a bit more absorbency and don't want to add bulk. It is narrow, so not it's bulky between the legs. The narrowness also keeps the fit correct of many fitted diapers since it's narrow enough not to interfere with the fit of the leg openings. This is really a wonderful, high-value (very useful) item.

If you buy these when baby is young, you can keep using them all the way to potty training for a truly excellent value. The size long gives you some more absorbency for an older baby. Made in the USA of imported material. Both the cotton and hemp are said to be organic, according to our fabric supplier, but at this time they are uncertified. Note: if you like to use borax a lot, choose 100% cotton instead of hemp. Cut and sewn in the USA of imported material (all hemp is imported. There is no such thing as hemp that is made in the USA as far as I know; most places leave off that tidbit about the fact that the hemp is imported). Custom made for Green Mountain Diapers by a grandma for over 12 years. Her sewing work is  wonderful.  Since there is just one person sewing these we sometimes sell out of them faster than she can sew them. I apologize for the occasional times that they are out of stock. When this happens it is usually only for a short time so check back again soon.

Unlike the cotton Cloth-eez Doublers these doublers lay flat after washing. The Sherpa Doublers also lay flat nicely, but these are more absorbent than the Sherpa Doublers.  The Sherpa is usually softer than the hemp however.  Everything has trade-offs. These Hemp Doublers are also available in a Stay-Dry version.

Made in the USA from domestic and imported materials.

Natural fibers change with use and washing.   Hemp/cotton is fluffy when new but that will change with washing.  Hemp is a dense material which makes it more absorbent than cotton.  It will look like the one on the left in this picture after a while.

Soft, absorbant and the perfect size.

Perfect. The perfect length and weight to use as a doubler in an Intermediate Prefold. I use with both my (large) 3mo old and my 2-year old (we started with the shorts for my little and they're just too short now). Such great bang for your buck here. The doublers are soft and absorbent!

Soft and absorbent

I'm sure these will lose some softness over time, but after a couple washes they are very soft and absorbent.

Love these as extra absorbent doublers in my flats and prefolds for long naps, overnight, and longer adventures.

Fit well inside prefolds and surprisingly thin!

They add a nice extra layer of absorbency to prefolds. We have some osocozy prefolds that just dont hold as much liquid as the cloth-eez prefolds. I have two thirsties hemp doublers that I sometimes add, but they are pretty thick and add a lot of bulk to my baby's diaper. These hemp doublers are surprisingly thin so they dont bulk up the diaper but still add an extra layer of absorbency so her diaper doesn't feel soaked when I change her. I highly recommend them!

Great booster!

I bought these doublers, to use as boosters, inside my diapers. They were a fraction of the cost, of the boosters that are made by the diaper company....and work just as well!!!
