Bamboo/Hemp blend is perfect for cloth nappies as hemp has four times the durability and absorption of cotton, so you can have a super absorbant nappy, without the bulk. Hemp also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it ideal for nappies.
Not only does it make a great nappy, but it's an environmentally kind choice too - the growth of hemp has less impact on our environment, requires less water to grow than cotton, requires less labor, and hemp can be reproduced much faster than cotton.
Bamboo/Hemp Fleece has been brushed, so it's lovely and soft and fleecy. One side is smooth and the other has a fleecy look and feel.
Bamboo/Hemp French Terry has a smooth knit side, and a 'flat loop' side. French terry is NOT the same as terry towelling
Care instructions: Hemp shrinks a lot on the first wash, up to 20%. It is advised to wash and dry several times prior to using in nappies (preferably on a hot wash) to remove natural oils in the fabric which are said to hinder it reaching its full absorbtion potential until they are washed out - see the FAQ section for info on prewashing & shrinkage. After initial prewashing & shrinkage, can be hot or cold washed, & is ok for the drier. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.
