What happen to hemp?

You know hemp can wash in hot...
You know hemp is the fiber from natural plant...
You know hemp provide good absorbency...
You know hemp retain odour more than others...
You know hemp takes longer time to dry than microfiber...
You know hemp will get stiff over time...
You know hemp will get harden over time...
But do you know hemp will become thinner???

I wonder how come the hemp diaper/insert that I once love for its absorbency seems not really that absorbent anymore? Perhaps my girl pee volume increase? How come the touch of the hemp is much more thinner after so many washes? Anyone notice this?

Or is it just me that feel so?

Yes, as with other natural fabrics, hemp will get thinner eventually. The hemp itself is very durable, but hemp used in cloth diapers is never 100% hemp. The most common combo is 55% hemp 45% cotton.

hi dewi, so it is true that hemp will become thinner... no wonder I realized the hemp diapers are less absorbent than before. Must take extra care in washing in hot now and I'm reluctant to buy more hemp diaper now...
