Stock Status: In stock.  Usually ships the same or next business day.  

Size Small, 4x11 inches  

Size Long,  4x14 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.

Small is white/white.

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!!!

Praise the lord I found these!

Seriously I thought people were kidding about the difference in hemp materials. But it's worth every penny people. I've had microfiber, charcoal bamboo, and thirsties inserts and these are the best. They're not super bulky which is a common issue I have with trying to get enough absorbency. I pair one hemp insert with a thirsties insert and it stopped the leaks I was having. Wish I had bought more.

Love these doublers

Wonderful, soft doublers. Pink and blue stitching on the long doublers. They fit the length of the yellow (small) prefolds and work perfectly with the pad fold. Love these!

Extremely absorbent

I have a newborn and prior to using these she would completely soak her prefolds within and hour, maybe two. But after putting the hemp doubler between the first layer of the prefolds, after two hours during her change, only the top layer and the doubler were wet. I was very pleasantly surprised at the absorbency.

Nice doublers!

I've been impressed by these doublers. I have some other hemp doublers from Thirsties brand, and these work comparatively well. They are more flexible than the Thirsties brand and dry a little faster. I always fold them in half and put on wet zone. Nice boost of absorption for long naps, overnight, and/or longer adventures. Would recommend!
