The Avo&Cado Organic Cotton Prefold is a great way to diaper your baby using ecological natural fibers, especially if you're on a budget or don't have easy access to a washing machine and/or tumble dryer. By pairing the remarkably soft and thirsty prefold with a great diaper cover like the Blueberry Capri Cover or the Smart Bottoms Too Smart Cover, it becomes a phenomenal and environmentally thoughtful diapering option. Using diaper covers with prefolds means less washing than other styles of cloth diapers, because you can simply remove the prefold from the cover when wet, wipe the cover clean, put in a new prefold, then reuse the cover again.
The Prefold is made of multiple layers of fabric sewn together and divided into thirds. The outer two thirds are made up of four layers of cotton, while the middle third contains eight layers (4-8-4). That makes it a whopping 16 layers of absorbent cotton in the wet zone when folded together! When you receive your Avo&Cado Prefolds, they'll be flat and smooth. But after the first wash, they'll become softer, will shrink in size, and, overtime, fluff up to create an exquisite quilted texture (see pictures above for reference).
For heavy wetters, we recommend adding an extra absorbent insert. The prefold can be wrapped around the insert before placing in the cover. Hemp inserts should be placed between the prefold and cover due to their slower absorbing capacity. The Avo&Cado Prefolds work best with covers that have double gussets around the legs to contain messes and moisture, and covers that have internal flaps to hold the prefolds in place.

Wash & Care
Prewash prefold at least three times at 60° C before first use to remove natural oils and open up fibers to increase absorbency. It will increase absorbency and become softer with each subsequent wash and will reach maximum absorbency after approximately 10 washes. Wash up to 90° C (40° C and 60° C are also sufficient). Tumble dry on warm setting or line dry.
*Measurements are approximate. Size 3 runs on the bigger end and is perfect for growing toddlers.
