Re: Sherpa vs. Hemp....

Hemp is more absorbant than sherpa, but I have had good luck with my sherpa snap-ins from LHC very absorbant!. Maybe try again tonight, maybe it was a fluke last night? I'm sorry they aren't working out for you!

Re: Sherpa vs. Hemp....

Hemp definitely absorbs more, but even so, DS gets wet on the outside of his hemp PW almost everytime he wears it. He's a heavy wetter at night! IME sherpa doesn't work for DS at night, so we use it during the day cuz it's so soft!

Re: Sherpa vs. Hemp....

I guess I'm in the minority here... I love my sherpa dipes! All of my night dipes are sherpa... not hemp. Corey is a superdupersoaker and they work great for him.

Re: Sherpa vs. Hemp....

If they were new dipes and you only washed them once, you may find they become more absorbent after subsequent washings.

Re: Sherpa vs. Hemp....

Here is my scale of absorbancy from least absorbant to most: sherpa, OV, hemp. I use sherpa only for daytime, and save all my hemp for night. JMO, of course, I see that there are some staunch sherpa lovers out there!!
