I have a doz. organic red edges....

I have never had the regular red edges so I can't really compare between the two. But I have some LL unbleached indian in the infant size, and the organic GMDs are by far the SOFTEST pfs I have ever felt! They are really absorbant too.

I just prepped and started using the yellow edge organics, but I don't have any GMD regular. I've tried UIP from Cloth Diaper, and the GMD are much more absorbent. From what I have read in other threads, mamas do love the organic over regular.

They are super fluffy, soft, and sized generously. We always have to look out for our cat-- I caught him trying to nap in a freshly laundered and dried pile the other day!

I have the organic reds too. LOVE them! They are silky soft and very absorbant. I can't compare them against the regular reds either, but compared with a bleached Chinese pf there is really just no comparison. My Chinese pfs never got grabbed and each morning I go on a snappi hunt to put the GMDs on first thing.

From GMD, I have regular yellow edge and organic red edge. Now, I loved my yellow edge, as they were thick, quilty and very absorbent. But my organics are UNBELIEVABLE! They are so absorbent that a lot of times when I change DD the outside of the prefold isn't wet!!! They are super-soft and incredibly high-quality. I will only be ordering organics from here on out!

love, love, LOVE them! We've also used LL unbleached and bleached GMD...but these are by far my favorite. They are thicker, softer and more absorbant than any other cotton prefold I've ever seen. I'm in the process of trying to make our stash mostly GMD organic prefolds from birth to potty learning They are seriously that great!
