Prefolds and covers are a modern twist on a traditional cloth nappy favourite. Sewn like a ‘pre-folded’ flat nappy, they have more absorbent layers down the middle so that washing and fitting the nappy on baby is made quicker and easier.
RAWr Nappies prefolds now come in 4 sizes to fit every baby from premature newborn to 5-6 years old (usually used as a better quality insert for stuffing in a pocket nappy on bigger children).

Prefolds are absolutely the easiest and most economical way to cloth nappy a newborn baby, I have always recommended them to parents looking to cloth nappy from birth. And now we are actually offering our own! It’s really exciting, because I love how easy prefolds and covers make trying cloth nappies from early on. They make a great baby gift for parents who are interested in trying cloth, and now RAWr prefolds can be used right up until toilet training too.
Our prefolds have had a couple of changes for this stock update:
- Hemp Prefolds now have fluffy hemp fleece backing (sooooo soft against the skin) and extra fleece in the wetzone. Because of this they are not quite as stretchy as our trademark 100% hemp terry prefolds but they still have enough stretch to use them folded around baby and fastened with a fastener or pins.
- Bamboo Prefolds now have fluffy bamboo fleece backing (also sooo soft!) and instead of microfibre through the wetzone, now have an extra layer of bamboo fleece. This makes them trimmer and faster drying without losing absorbency.
