Detailed Comments:

This is a very slim fitting nappy which also looks cute due to the coloured stitching on a natural un-dyed background. It is very soft and durable-looking on arrival but I have found that it has 'bobbled' a little with use and washing (I tumble and then dry on an indoor airer). This doesn't detract from its cuteness though.

Being hemp I had very high hopes for its absorbency, but it is so slim that I find that I need a booster. I notice that the newer version has a flap-out booster so this might solve the problem. I like the gentle elastic at the back and legs - it doesn't look uncomfortable or leave red marks. :D

It does take a very long time to dry... Not a nappy to choose if you can't either tumble or line dry.

Overall I think it is a good daytime nappy at a very good price, but as hemp goes I prefer my baby beehinds as they are much more absorbent (due to having a choice of two boosters). I do like the fact that they are sized though rather than birth to potty as my little one is tall and I can't see her birth to potty nappies fitting all the way to potty training.
