I have read here a lot about people's hemp getting stiff after awhile. I've never had that problem and I've had several kinds of hemp fabrics over the years. Well today I dried on high heat because my new dipes are still being broken in, and I had some hemp liners in there too. They were so stiff! I compared them to some that had been washed previously and yep, the old ones were much softer, like a t-shirt. I think it's the high heat. Normally I dry on low heat for a longer amt. of time, but today was trying to rough up the diapers to break them in.
