Hemp Fleece Fabric Quantity = number of yards.
Hemp fleece is slightly stretchy and extremely absorbent. Knit in a light creamy natural color. Use for diapers, fitteds, prefolds, aios, soakers, and clothing. Hemp fleece is excellent for diapers and soakers.
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 320g/m2 | 14.5 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.)

I really like the absorbency of this fabric, but I would only use it inside a soaker or on the bottom of a soaker and never touching the skin. I spent a long time picking tiny splintery wooden peices out of a soaker I made for a friend. I've never seen with hemp before so I don't know if this is common or not with hemp. It feels very durable though, if a bit tough.

I like the end product, but it was a difficult process. No matter how hard I tried to cut straight according to the "grain," The inserts would shrink into a funny shape after washing them. Finally, I had to prewash even though the description recommends sewing first. The fabric is lovely after the work.

Bought some for cloth diapers but am instead make contour nursing pads. Very easy to sew with; overcast stitched around edge for durability even though it won't fray and it makes it look more professional. Use 2 layers and they look like they'd feel soft against your skin. I made some for my sis-in-law. She loves them. And now, with her good experience, I'm going to add them to my creations I sell online. Will definitely be back for more!
