A 4 Layer hemp fleece insert.
Generally considered the most absorbent inserts especially since they 'hold' moisture well when squeezed.
Keep in mind that since hemp absorbs more slowly than bamboo and microfiber we don't recommend only using hemp inserts ... rather use one or two hemp inserts WITH either a bamboo or microfiber insert.
(For example stuff a pocket nappy with 1x bamboo insert and 1x hemp insert, always placing the hemp furthest away from the bum - the bamboo then sucks the moisture in quickly which then spreads down to the hemp below which really locks the moisture in)
Also keep in mind that since they 'hold' moisture so well, they do take significantly longer to dry. They also stiffen as they dry on the line. This stiffness can be worked away by hand, or by popping them into a tumble drier for a few minutes. Hemp inserts can also lose their shape a bit - this is quite normal and doesn't affect their efficiency at all.
Very useful as baby gets a little older and wee volume increases
Very useful for nights
Size: ±35cm x ±13cm (hemp does warp and shrink during regular wash routine)
Remember that hemp requires a number of washes to become fully absorbent. To accelerate this:
Hand wash the new hemp inserts in warm water with a little dishwashing liquid (eg. Fairy) - this removes a lot of the oil residue quickly.
Only do this once - thereafter wash as per regular routine.
(Note that hemp fleece fabric is quite 'fluffy' and can release quite a bit of 'fluff' during the first wash.)
