I am going to make some doublers for my heavy wetter to have in his prefold for overnight.<br>
But which hemp combo is the most absorbent (yet, not bulky?): french terry/hemp or fleece/hemp??

A lot of mama's prefer the hemp fleece. I prefer hemp terry b/c it doesn't pill as much and that means less lint will get on your dipes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
edited b/c I am an idiot and meant to put hemp terry not jersey :LOL

I always liked using the 3 layers of hemp/cotton fleece. You can put the fuzzi sides inside and the smooth sides outside and then you wont have the pilling and fuzzi's. The smooth side of hemp fleece is alot like hemp jersey. I think hemp fleece is alot more durable then hemp jersey. But it is all a matter of your own personal likes!<br><br>

It will depend if you use preshrunk hemp fleece, which I would recommend, and what size you want them to be. Let me know and I will try to help you.<br><br>

If it is the Michelle I think it is. She is the end all authority on hemp doublers, inserts, etc.<br><br>

I agree hemp fleece (fuzzy side in) is best. I think hemp terry is kind of scratchy.
