Hemp Fleece Fabric Quantity = number of yards.
Hemp fleece is slightly stretchy and extremely absorbent. Knit in a light creamy natural color. Use for diaper inserts, prefolds, soakers, and piddle pads. We recommend sewing inserts smooth side out.
55% Hemp 45% Certified Organic Cotton. Imported. GOTS certified organic.
Width 56 inches. Comes as a 28 inch wide "tube" of fabric with both sides connected. Cut open along one side if needed as one flat width.
Weight 330g/m2 | 15.5 oz per linear yard
Care Machine wash warm, tumble dry.
Sewing Inserts and boosters are typically sewn smooth sides out. Can be used fleecy side out, although it will produce a good bit of dryer lint.
In our testing, initial shrinkage by length is about 12%. Prewash the fabric before cutting out you pattern.
Pro Tip: If you are doing a simple shape, like a soaker or insert, you can alter your pattern to compensate for the shrinkage and sew the fabric unwashed. Just multiply the pattern length by 1.15 and you will have the length you need to cut and sew without prewashing the fabric; when you wash the finished insert it will shrink to the correct final size. Make sure you have the fabric laid out on the straight grain before cutting, so that the finished insert does not twist. (If you are not sure if the fabric is straight, prewash before cutting.)

difficult to use
Posted by Unknown on 31st Aug 2016
I like the feeling of this fabric a lot, very cushy and seems absorbent. but it was so badly twisted off grain that a portion of my yardage was wasted as I attempted to line my diaper and soaker patterns on the straight grain. it made some lovely items though once it was cut so I may purchase again and just get extra.
Super Absorbent and Thin

I have a very petite little girl and with using this material she gets the cutest fluff bum without having to go up a size in pants. She had to be changed every 1.5/2 hours with microfiber and I had to increase the size of her pants to cover all the fluff. She can now go 2.5/3 hours without being changed her clothes fit again.

This material is very absorbent and was used to make night time inserts for diapers. The fabric did shrink significantly during the prepping process, so maybe order more than you think you'll need!
Super soft and good for you

I bought a yard of this to make my daughter some inserts for her diapers. I was able to make 8, 3 layer, inserts and I love them! They are very absorbent. I also made my inserts where one end was open so at night I can slip a microfiber insert in between the hemp and it holds my daughter over all night. I will definitely be purchasing some more.
Charmin, we got ya beat!

I love the absorbency of the hemp fleece. I had only bought the French terry previously, but after trying this one, I will likely purchase it more often. I made 3-layer inserts and they hold a lot of liquid.

I bought this fabric to make nursing pads and it is just so soft! The material is wonderful!
sew smooth side out
Posted by Hannah C. on 10th Jun 2015
I've been trying different fabrics for my diaper inserts and this is one of them. Fleece of any kind should generally not be put against skin that is wet. It has a tendency to pull moisture and cause excessive skin dryness. This fabric is fabulously absorbent, and if it's sewn fleece side in, with the smooth sides facing out it doesn't fray, pill or overdry skin. It's also very comfortable. My daughter is very verbal with me about how she likes her diapers to feel, and she has not complained about these inserts at all. I would recommend this fabric, and would buy it again.
