If they are new, then no. They need to be washed several times to remove the hemp oil in the fibers and to reach maximum absorbancy.

Once they are used, I wash everything together. Every once in a while, I strip the inserts by themselves. I have not had any problems.

^^Yeah, that.

I was all my hemp in it's own load at first. (Usually I'll throw my wipes in with it, so it isn't a tiny load.) But, after a while, once the hemp is "broken in" and all of the natural oils are gone, I just wash everything together.

Technically I think you are always supposed to wash hemp alone (I've heard that somewhere before, but I could be wrong!), but once it's broken in, I think you're okay to wash it with micro.

:2cents: Just my process. Keep in mind I only use pockets. I always wash hemp separate from my pockets. The fleece will stay much nicer and have less issues if you wash them separately. I also wash hemp alone for at least 3 wash dry cycles..

Good luck. I love joey bunz once they are prepped! It took us 5 washes!

Once they are broke in they can be washed together. The only thing I wouldn't wash with pockets is terry like BKT or towel-like terry (not micro, its fine). Terry will leave fuzzies all over your fleece and make it pilly. :2cents:

Yes, I did that early on..... what a mess. I have a lot of inserts with BKT on one side so that is the main reason I separate them.
