OsoCozy Unbleached Prefold Cloth Diapers
Unbleached Prefolds - 100% Indian cotton prefold
diapers. OsoCozy unbleached prefolds are twill weave
diapers that are incredibly soft and absorbent and become
softer with washing. Because they are unbleached they have
a nice natural cotton color to them but they also have to
be prewashed 2-3 times in hot water to reach full
absorbency! As with all cloth prefolds these will shrink
5-10%. See below for information on our unbeatable
volume pricing. OsoCozy prefolds are the
highest quality and best selling prefolds sold on the

bleached prefolds almost 4 to 1.

versus Un-Bleached Prefold Cloth
Bleached prefold diapers are
white because the cotton yarn was bleached in the
factory prior to weaving the material. Cotton is
naturally an ivory or light brown color. The bleaching
process turns the cotton fibers white and also removes
the natural cotton oils in the fibers. In doing so the
strength of the fibers is reduced and the resulting
woven material is slightly less durable. The bleaching
process can lead to additional pollutants being
released to the environment through airborne and
waterborn emissions. Recent improvements in bleaching
technology has reduced but not eliminated this impact.
diapers retain much of their natural cotton oils in
the fiber matrix they are softer and more durable than
bleached cloth diapers. Unbleached prefold cloth
diapers must be washed at least 2-3 times after you
receive them before they become absorbant. We
recommend washing the diapers in hot sudsy water and
drying them on high heat and repeating as many times
as necessary for the diapers to become absorbant. You
can test the absorbency by making a pocket of the
diaper and slowly pouring 1/2 cup of liquid into the
diaper. If the pools and does not soak in fairly
quickly, keep washing. Depending upon the detergent
you use and the hardness of your water and the natural
variations in cotton materials you may have to wash
these up to 5 times before they become fully
absorbant. Generally 2-3 washes will be
sufficient though. Do not under any circumstance use
fabric softner as this causes the fabric to be coated
and thus repels moisture. Despite the added effort
necessary to break in these diapers, they are
extremely popular and by most accounts well worth it.
Choosing The Right Size For Diapering &
The three layering
numbers refer to the number of fabric
layers of the three panels of the prefold
diaper with the middle panel being the
thickest. Thicker diapers are generally
preferred for home diapering due to the
added absorbency. Most diaper services use
4x6x4 diapers to economize on costs and
drying time and because they supply enough
diapers for frequent changes. Most home
users prefer 4x8x4 diapers. If you
feel your 4x8x4 diapers are too bulky try
4x6x4 diapers. Preemie cloth
diapers make great baby wipes and are
popular as diaper doublers and are also
suitable for the first 2-4 weeks of
diapering after birth. 4x6x4
prefolds are recommended as home cleaning
rags. Regular 4x6x4 cloth diapers
are recommended both for burp cloths and
for automobile detailing. Unsure of what
size is best for you? Don't hesitate to
