Brand new to the UK market (and at the moment, exclusive to The Flats Company) these stretchy hemp/cotton 50cm squares handmade in Portugal are just beautiful.
Made of Hemp terry and Cotton this unbleached fabric is super soft and smooth on one side and on the other has soft hemp terry loops which hooks easily on to nappy fasteners.
Composition: 47% hemp, 38% hemp, 5% stretch terry cloth fabric.
Size 50cm- Newborn sizing suitable even for tiny babies. A great night nappy once baby starts to sleep longer. Can be padfolded in to wraps till potty training or used (like a trifold) to boost other nappies.
How to use
These can be fitted to baby with a nappy fastener such as a pin or nippa, cover with a waterproof wrap and make sure all the nappy is tucked inside the wrap to prevent leaks.
For extra absorbency add a booster inside the flat, or outside between the flat and the wrap to avoid compromising the fit of the fold.
Top with a fleece or disposable liner to keep baby dry and to simplify the disposal of solids (post weaning).
Remember, you can reuse your wraps 3-4 times by wiping them out with a wet cloth if they do not come in to contact with poo.
How to wash and dry
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to remove manufacturing residue.
These flats are made from natural materials and will shrink up a little after several washes. When using brand new, natural fibre flats it takes 4-5 washes for the fabric to begin reaching peak absorbency because the natural oils in the fibres need to be removed.
Once in use, wash at 40-60 degrees. Do not use fabric conditioner.
Dry naturally if possible. Can be placed on radiators to speed drying.
Low tumble only.
