Hemp prefolds and the snappi...

Arrrrgh! Why do hemp prefolds never snappi right? Am I the only one using them as actual prefolds? I can't trifold in a wool soaker. My thirsties stopped snappi-ing closed when he hit about 12lbs but I came up with the rather elegant solution of folding them into a flat so that they could be snappied on and used under wool. But I was hoping to simplify and find a hemp prefold that I could actually use as a prefold. I am trying out a new hemp babies prefold tonight. I couldn't snappi or pin it. So now I have a flat on him with the hemp babies trifolded underneath....but Um no thats not going to work! I have some baby kicks coming. I hope they take a snappi or the whole mess is going on f/s/o/t for some lucky mama's pockets and I'm sticking with thirsties hemp prefolds in flats.

Re: Hemp prefolds and the snappi...

do you sew at all? Maybe you could attach some grippy fabric like birdseye in little patches right onto the prefold where you need it to snappi?

I don't know if flour sack towels snappi, I've never had one. You could maybe sew a square of fleece on the tab? Fleece snappis pretty well, or maybe cut up a flat? My birdseye flats snappi really well.
