BB/WN combo inserts question

Postby rhead » Thu Oct 02, 2008 7:20 pm

OK, here's something I've been wondering about... I have a Wee Notions bamboo/hemp combo insert and a Blueberry mf/hemp insert (sized, not the one-size), and on both of them one side is a little longer. What's up with that? Is there some sort of conventional wisdom about the longer end? Do you fold it over, tuck it in? Not worry about it? Just curious!

I don't know the answer, however, I find they fold better if the join is on 1 side rather than on the fold IYKWIM

I think its just down to the amount that one fabric shrinks more in the wash than the other. I think hemp shrinks more than bamboo and microfibre so its probably these are that shorter on your inserts? I stretch mine after they come out of the wash and that usually solves the 'problem', not that it is a problem, just find it looks nicer :lol:
But no, I wouldn't worry about it ;)

Don't know about the BB ones but I think WN changed the pattern a bit to account for shrinkage - hemp shrinks alot more than other fabrics
