All of the prefolds we carry have tremendous reviews and we love the performance! Indian prefolds are made in Pakistan with Indian Cotton, and Babykicks Hemp/Fleece prefolds are terrific for very high absorbancy needs.
Indian prefolds take about 2-3 washes to break down the natural oils for full absorbancy and Babykicks hemp/fleece roughly 3-4. Subsequent washes will bring more absorbancy.
To "break in" prefolds, wash on hot and then dry on hot fully for a "cycle". Prefolds arrive larger than they will be in use, they will shrink down to their appropriate size after "breaking in" and will not shrink further after that process is complete.
