I'm pretty new to CDing. I just got some hemp doublers and was wondering if they need to be washed multiple times before using like CPFs. Thanks!

I recently invested in some hemp too! I was instructed by the mama I purchased them from <a href="http://www.frogandelephant.com" target="_blank">www.frogandelephant.com</a> to wash and dry them three times before using them to wash out some of the natural oils, this was corroborated with the polar babies website. I have heard they get more absorbent with time.

Hemp usually needs more washing than cotton to become most absorbent since it has a higher oil content. I usually boil new hemp first, then wash 2 times and they are good to go.

They do usually need pre-washing (unless the site says that they have already been prewashed) but don't do it with your other diapering items because the oils can transer to your prefolds, pockets, etc and cause them to repel.
