Sorry, I never noticed your earlier question.
Mine are just Mothercare's own brand. They are quite thin (and cotton), but still perfectly square. I did prewash everything at 30 though, not sure if that would've made a difference. They were cheap and worked a treat for the time I used them as nappies (up to about 14lbs).
They're all grubby from being used for various things so I was planning on buying some bamboo ones this time round, but really would prefer that they stayed square. How disappointing.
Yes, I read somewhere that apparently bleached cotton isn't as likely to change shape. Maybe it's something to do with the bleaching process. Maybe I should look for a bleached bamboo terry, if there is such as thing?
I have also ordered some organic cotton squares, and the lady I ordered them from assured me that hers have stayed square, but then that's what the lady I ordered the bamboo ones ordered from said as well... I'll let you know how those behave in the wash. I might just wash one first, not all of them.
