Hemp is usually smooth (i.e. doesn't have loops like on a bath towel) and a creamy/tan colour.



Unless it's hemp terry :giggle: :giggle:

an unknown one that feels quite rough
one that has 3 sections - one section lovely and soft and other two parts feel like a towel that needs some softener and tumble dry.
the others are large blueberrys soft on one section and the other section is quite stiff.

i am sorry for the simple talking :oops:


The swaddlebee is a double hemp insert so both bits are hemp

The one that has three sections; the soft bit is microfibre and the other two bits are bamboo terry. Give it a whiz in the tumble dryer that should soften them up :wink:

Blueberries; soft bit is microfibre and the harder bits are hemp

:hug:

:giggle:

I would say you need some bamboo or microfibre on top of the hemp inserts as hemp, though thirsty, is slow to absorb. I find bamboo is the best for big piddlers (having one myself :giggle: ). Personally that works the best for us.

The blueberries I found that if I put a bamboo terry booster in the middle of the two layers that worked great too.

oh p'tit dessous are fab bamboo inserts.
