Help what is this?

Postby clothmama » Wed Jul 09, 2014 7:36 am

I'm in the middle of making my first nappy and was making the inner absorbency out of what I thought was bamboo but now I'm thinking it is hemp. What do you think?

And if it is hemp is just the layer of stretch on top enough or do I need to add something else?

Looks hempy because it's so bobbled. Afaik hemp cant be your uppermost absorbant layer as it just wont soak up in time. I'd try micrifibre, flannel or bamboo on top x

You've confirmed my fears and now I've stupidly takced down the fleece onto it so will need to unpick and add a layer of toweling!! It is quite stiff too so I'm pretty sure it is hemp, I seem to remember bamboo was pretty new to the nappy scene when Louis was little and hard to get hold of!
