Big box in the mail.
Microfleece, to go on the inside of the diaper to keep him dry and comfy. It is soooooooooo soft. I wish you could feel it.
Then there is organic hemp that will act as the soaking up fabric in the middle of the diapers. Research says that it absorbs an awful lot in very few layers of fabric.
And then there was 3 colours of french terry cloth to go on the outside of the diapers. These will be used with a diaper cover, which is the same, but much more sophisticated idea as the old fashioned rubber, or vinyl pull up pants that used to go over cloth diapers.
I still have to order a snap press that will add the snaps to keep the diaper covers, and the all in one diapers closed. This is a totally new thing, that I have never done before, so the process should be interesting. The first thing I have to do with all this is wash it. The french terry cloth, and the organic hemp all take a couple of washes and drys on hot to shrink them down the full amount. So, guess what I'll be doing for the next few weeks?
