Indian Prefolds must be washed and dried 3-4 times before using. When you receive your new Indian Prefolds they will be stiff and flat. That changes a lot when you wash and dry them.
They will become thicker and more absorbent with each washing and drying. You should expect 5-10% shrinkage as these
cloth diapers plump up - getting softer and more absorbent.
Indian Prefolds are available in White, Unbleached and Organic.
Indian Prefolds are used with a waterproof diaper cover or waterproof pull-up pants. There are many different kinds of diaper covers - you get to choose what you like best! All of the cotton prefold must be tucked inside the diaper cover so you don't get leaks.
In the chart below, each size prefold indicates the number of layers it has. The prefold is a rectangular diaper made of several layers of cotton twill that are sewn together so the middle area is thicker than the 2 sides. When it says that the Newborn size is 2x5x2 it means that there are 2 layers of cotton on the outside and 5 layers of cotton in the middle.
