I found this diaper material on the rough side and sold it shortly after I bought it last year. The Crickett's hemp fleece is much softer. I'm not sure I recall the absorbency of the LB hemp noticeably better -- if it were, it was not enough to compensate (for us) for the roughness of the material. (And I did not line dry so it was not an issue of stiffness from line drying.)

Re: Crickett's diapers

Another Q -- I have two Cricketts diapers, and they are obviously quite different; the one must be hemp terry, as it's rougher and looks more 'towel-like.' It's the toddler size, so it's got red serging. But my other one does not seem like fleece. It seems like it's some kind of woven? It has rainbow serging. Does anyone know what this is? I like it, and I wish I could get more, but I don't see anything with rainbow serging on the site. It's also toddler size.

The smooth side of hemp fleece looks woven. I prefer that, actually. I'm not sure why more hemp makers don't use the smooth side.

Sadly not for us =(
Our Little Beetles we just bought have turned out to be a 1 pee diaper.
My cricketts (I have hemp terry) go all night if I add another doubler.

Re: Crickett's diapers

I'm surprised at all the comments about them being rough. I have hemp terry, and I love it! I didn't know there was hemp fleece either, and I guess that would seem more comfy to me, but the hemp terry has worked GREAT for us as an overnight fitted. I'm actually a little sad now, because DS has outgrown it.

Time to get another one, I guess!
