Re: PREFOLDS~ Indian Vs. Chinese

Indians - I actually started CDing w/CPFs but I got an IPF in a trade & fell in love. May sound crazy but that's why I stock IPFs in my store - I just think they are softer & better! SOOOOO much softer.

Little-lions indians don't shrink anymore then the CPF. I've got some(a lot)of their indians and they are the exact same sizes as my cpfs

I use Indain, but ordered a few cpf's to try and they just came in the mail today so I can't really say which I like just yet. They're on wash #3 right now.

ETA: I only buy unbleached. I like the natural look, and I figured they'd look newer longer.

Indian, unbleached. Softer, quilt up more and IMO absorb more. CPF seem stiffer and give my little ones like a rub burn on the tender spots.
