Wee Impees hemp flats are made from 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton blend French Terry. Everything is handmade in South Gloucestershire.
This smooth hemp jersey has a high capacity and is really durable. Perfect for heavy wetters and over night use.
Hemp will shrink after the first few washes and these flats have been made with that in mind. They will arrive bigger than 60cm and rectangular, after the first few washes they will shrink to a more square shape. Be sure to stretch and reshape while wet.
Organic cotton and hemp are grown with no pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers. Hemp requires a 1/3 less space and 1/5 less water than cotton for an equal amount of fibre. The greater the level of hemp the lower the impact on the planet. 55% is the highest amount suitable for use in nappies so that is what Wee Impees use.
TIP: hemp will reach it's maximum absorbency after 8-10 washes. You may also like to pair hemp with a quick absorbing insert such as cotton.
