OsoCozy Unbleached Indian Prefolds are diaper service quality (DSQ), and feature 4x8x4 ply* layers of 100% cotton. The material is a durable gauze weave fabric that will shrink slightly and fluff up to become very soft and absorbent with just a few washes. They are lint free and a natural/ivory color since they are unbleached. These diapers will need to be prepped for first use by washing & drying at least 3 times, to remove the natural oils and allow them to absorb properly.
*What do we mean by 4x8x4 ply? Simply put, this is the number of layers of fabric in each panel of the diaper, which is divided into thirds - so there are 4 layers of fabric along each side of the diaper, and 8 layers down the center for maximum absorbency right where baby needs it.
Prefolds require the use of a waterproof diaper cover. Wrap the prefold around the baby (check out this Intro to Prefolds post by Dirty Diaper Laundry for folding instructions) & fasten with aSnappi, or simply fold in thirds and lay inside a snug fittingcover. You can also use prefolds as an insert for your pocket diapers or as a booster for virtually any kind of diaper!
