Does anyone know why Wazoodle doens't recommend Hemp??

On another thread about Zorb the mention of Wazoodle came up and how they do not recommend any kind of use of hemp in diapers. Does anyone know why? Thanks!

If you mean no hemp sewn inside of a diaper, I think it's because it takes forever to dry, and tends to get "the stinkies". However, hemp as a doubler/insert is great!

Re: Does anyone know why Wazoodle doens't recommend Hemp??

I found this on a forum where one of the Wazoodle ladys answered a question about hemp:
Quote:
ANYTHING hemp (i.e. fleece, jersey, french terry, stretch terry), we sell hemp on a special order basis, in knits, terrys and wovens. Hemp (hemp fabrics are usually 40% hemp 60% cotton) 10yd minimums. If you haven't used hemp, we always offer a friendly caution that the benefits of hemp in diaper making are somewhat overstated. Hemp is slightly more absorbant than cotton, but the down side is that it shrinks, it's not line dryable, and in climates with 80% plus humidity it may put off a slightly pungent odour.
