Your opinion on EP hemp sizing

Postby fluffycabbage » Fri Oct 16, 2009 10:22 am

I bought 5 EP hemp boosters from ebay when i first started using real nappies, and ive recently bought 5 more. However the second lot are a completely different size to the first lot! :shock: Also, the first lot are quite white on the outside, whereas the second lot are a sort of beigey colour. They both feel about the same thickness.
Any ideas? The second lot are so much wider that they dont fit in half the nappies i have :-? :roll:

It will shrink after a few washes. EP hemp boosters are more yellow when they are new too and then fade to white eventually. We don't have probs fitting either older or newer ones in our pockets though. What nappies are you using them in?

I find the Ep hemps a bit wide for stuffing but i only use them in my bedbugs which are quite narrow and we dont use pocets but they did fit in our BGs like a glove :wink:

Im using them in fuzzis under the mf insert. Theyre just that bit too wide and end up wrinkling, which in turn causes leaks :-? Needless to say im not using the wide ones atm. Washing them a few more times to try to get them shrunk down! I thought it might be down to a shrinkage issue - but i honestly dont think the first lot were that big! And they werent as yellow either! hmmmm.....

I haven't used easy peasies, but on the colour thing. I've just been cutting apart some hemp inserts and the insides were still beige and the outsides white, so they defintely change colour with light/washing/age.

hmm, weird.....Ive noticed now that the first lot are narrower and longer than the second lot....i think i'll have to boil the second lot :giggle: they might shrink in width enough then, but might end up as squares instead :giggle:

That's the sort of thing that would happen to me :giggle:

i tried to shrink some weenotions hemp inserts once, and had to give up, they remained resolutely too big and only way I could get them to shrink was with a pair of scissors :wink:
