CPF or IPF-how to tell the difference?

I acquired about 30 prefolds and that I'm trying to figure out what they are How do you tell the difference between CPFs and IPFs?? These are bleached and have green serging on the sides, I believe.

Thanks Mamas!

Are there two different sizes that you can compare? If so lay one on top of the other and the smaller one is most likely an Indian. Does that make sense? *Usually* Indian shrink up a bit more than Chinese.

Umm..you mean two different sizes of the same size? There are some infant sized ones and some premium sized ones.... But none of them are the same size yet slightly "off"

Are you trying to figure out sizing or whether they're Indian or Chinese?

Is there colored stitching around the edges? If it is green or blue it is probably a Chinese, if there is no colored stitching around the edges it is probably Indian.

not one prefold will always be the same size as another, there will always be variations but green serging sounds like chinese whereas indian have natural colored serging on them.

I had some bleached toddler Indians that had green serging too. They were most definitely toddler and they were most definitely Indian because I wanted Chinese and they didn't have them. Weird.
