Our favorite insert fabrics are bamboo cotton and hemp cotton - SUPER absorbent, soft and not too bulky. They pair well together with the hemp on the bottom and the bamboo on top for the best combination.
We have a couple of different options available....
Bamboo Cotton Inserts: (pre-shrunk) with or without snap These inserts have 4 layers of 340gsm bamboo cotton fabric (comprised of 70% bamboo & 30% cotton) and make for a soft, yet very absorbent insert. They are approximately 13cm wide by 35cm long. They can be used on their own for young babies and toddlers or doubled up with a second insert for heavy wetters and older toddlers.
Hemp Cotton Inserts: (pre-shrunk) with or without snap These inserts have 4 layers of 340gsm hemp cotton fabric (comprised of 55% hemp & 45% cotton) and are very absorbent. They are approximately 13cm wide by 35cm long. While hemp is extremely absorbent, it absorbs slower than most other fabrics and therefore isn't recommended to be used on it's own as it may not absorb wees fast enough. It pairs well with bamboo cotton, bamboo terry, or microfiber on top.
Standard Insert Set: This set includes both a Bamboo Cotton Insert and a Hemp Cotton Insert (details above) with our very unique snap-in system to make a thirsty combo. The Bamboo Cotton Insert can snap into a nappy on it's own for the newborn phase or light wetters or into the Hemp Cotton which then snaps into the shell for when you need a bit more absorbency. Trifold with Snap: These inserts are made with 2 layers of 420gsm bamboo cotton and can snap into one of our shells. Fold it into 3 to give you 6 layers of super thirsty fabric in the wet zone.
Our Inserts are interchangeable and can be used in both our pockets and double gusset covers.
Tip: It is totally normal for natural fibre inserts such as bamboo, cotton and hemp to shrink in the wash. Our Standard Inserts (not Trifolds) are pre-shrunk and therefore the shrinkage should be minimal. While the inserts are still wet, pull them gently back into shape before drying to help reduce shrinkage.
