We are proud to stock these beautifully made high quality hemp flats which are handmade in the UK.
Why a hemp-blend? Organic cotton and hemp are grown with no pesticides, herbicides nor fertilisers. Hemp needs 1/3 less space and 1/5 less water than cotton for an equal amount of fibre, the plants are nitrogen-fixing and a strong tap root breaks up the soil reducing erosion and flooding. Therefore, the greater the ratio of hemp to cotton; the lower the impact. Wee Impees flats contain 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton, which is the highest ratio found in fabrics suitable for nappy use, only used by a handful of brands
Available in 60cm (birth to potty) and 70cm for bigger toddlers and young children.
Suitable for use overnight even with the heaviest of wetters!
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. Low tumble only.
