When I first opened the package I almost cried because these felt so nice compared with the made-in-China pockets I had been using. Now, having tried them for two weeks with a duo wrap, I’m lukewarm. After washing they’re not that soft, and when folded into thirds they’re so thick I feel like I’m sticking a tablecloth into my son’s diaper. On the plus side, they are absorbent. In my experience, getting the positioning right with prefolds and a duo wrap is tougher on a boy. You’ve got to have a thick fold up high to catch the pee, but keeping that thick fold in place where it needs to be can be hit or miss, especially with a squirming toddler. I haven’t had blowouts, but I had the prefold bunch up between my son’s legs and then not catch all the poop, causing the duo to get soiled from a poop that otherwise would have easily been contained. We’re probably a better candidate for Thirsties’ pockets, so I’m ordering more of those.

GO GREAT WITH DUO WRAPS! I LINE DRY AND THEY DRY RELATIVELY FAST AND AIR DRY SOFT. GREAT ABSORBENCY. EASY TO CLEAN AND DRYING THEM OUT IN SUN REMOVES ANY STUBBORN STAINS LEFT AFTER WASHING.

I bought a dozen of these a couple months ago, and I'll be buying more in size two. With my first daughter, I used a combination of flats and homemade flannel/terry inserts with the duo covers just to make ends meet. With my second, these have made things just as easy as disposable diapers. The hold so much! If I want to finish brushing my teeth, I can without worrying about leaks. It's a game changer. I can also let my husband be responsible for changes on the weekends, because the length of time he lets go between changes is rediculous, and with the makeshift inserts, he would get leaked on and demand disposables. I can get halfway through the night in these pre folds, or through a trip into town until I find a place to change her. These are the best diapers i have ever used, and even prefer them to disposables for convenience, because I don't deal with rashes. Yes, they take longer to dry, but it's hemp, and it wouldn't be hemp if it behaved like cotton. That's how you know it's the real stuff. Thank you for an awesome, stress free product.

These prefolds are amazing! We first got some size 1's as hand-me-downs. They are on their 3rd baby and are just barely starting to show some wear. They are super trim and very absorbant. Like really, REALLY absorbant. I used the size 1's at night until my baby got older and now use the size 2's. We still use the size 1's during the day. The design makes them dry super fast. Seriously, don't hesitate; just buy them.

These are awesome! Very soft and very absorbent! Works great tri-folded in a cover or even stuffed in a pocket. Wish I had more of them :)

The fold down is a little wonky, but overall these were a great size from 2-10mo. Really nice absorbency too!

Before Use: Thirsties Hemp products need to be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering products for the first 3 washes. Our hemp products will be fully primed and at their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-You may hang prefolds to dry, or dry in the dryer. If the diapers are stiff after line drying, you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
Please avoid the following practices and/or additives that can void the warranty on your Thirsties products:
Sanitize or Whites cycles on HE machines
Routine use of Bleach
These practices and/or additives can void the warranty on your Thirsties products.

Thirsties is revolutionizing the most widely used cloth diaper in the world. Prefold cloth diapers are popular for their affordability and are the most common diaper supplied by cloth diaper services. Though they don't share all the bells and whistles as other more modern cloth diapers, they have their definite and permanent place in the industry and they have been proven dependable and economical.
However, Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are no ordinary prefold! Ordinary prefolds are bulky and take a long time to dry. When hung to dry, they can become stiff and crunchy. In addition, most prefolds are 8 layers thick in the middle, which makes it difficult to clean all layers of the diaper thoroughly. Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are designed to allow water and air to flow through the 2 layer thick panels, permitting thorough cleansing with little effort and quick drying times. When trifolded the prefold provides 12 total layers of thirsty hemp cotton!
Our custom hemp jersey is as soft as your favorite t-shirt and it's knitted with love right here in the USA. Hemp is an ideal diaper fabric as it displays antimicrobial properties, is many times more durable, and is more absorbent than cotton. In fact, our hemp jersey is 25% more absorbent than a prefold of the same weight made from cotton alone! This translates into a very trim and effective cloth diaper with a hefty amount of absorbing power.
