what color is the thread on you CPF premium size

I've purchased some new Cpfs and the thread on the edge is light blue but after looking at some sites I see more of a royal blue. What is the difference. I bought these form a diaper servcie thinking they would be the most durable but they seem to leak a lot more than my original 6 and they a longer and stiffer than my original 6 Cpfs. The business has changed ownership since I purchased last year. I just assumed they would be the same dipes.

In my experience, GERBER diapers use a lighter blue thread and are a bit longer than premium CPF's. Perhaps you got Gerber dsq prefolds?

I dunno... I have a darker blue but also I have CPFs that have no colored stitching but work great too.

I think that you might have gotten a hold of some Gerber prefolds.

Have they fluffed up any since you have been washing them? My Gerber PF never fluffed up like my IPF did.

Re: what color is the thread on you CPF premium size

I can't seem to find any pictures of the Gerber DSQ Cpf.
I don't even know if mine are 4x8x4 or 4x6x4.
Will they soften and get more absorbant? Or did I buy some dudds?

Mine have never really softened up, so I use them trifolded in a cover. It seems to help with the absorbancy. I can't just pin them or snappi them.

These are actually my dipes that I use only when all the other ones are dirty. They work but I have to change DD more often than when I use my IPF.

I have had white premium CPFs with light blue thread and unbleached CPFs with the navy thread. The unbleached were definately thicker IMO.

Does thicker mean more absorbant.
They do seem to have fluffed up but they are not thick. They were like hard paper before washing for the first time.
Where do you get Gerber prefolds from i can't find any pictures.

I have some IPF's with dark blue thread and they are thicker and longer than the CPFs I have with white thread but the absorbancy seems to be pretty similar.

Re: what color is the thread on you CPF premium size

I have some European DSQ premium size prefolds that have light blue stitching. The weave is denser on the euro's and less fluffy so they do not quilt up quite like the CPF's. However, they will last forever. Mine required a few more washings to break in than my CPF's. I love them because they are as trim as a regular CPF but hold as much as a premium. I got mine from Granitesmith on e-bay. She and her DH owned a diaper service.
