About the Insert
The Sherpa Insert is sold in a 2 pack. They are the ultimate in softness and absorbency, and I mean ultimate! I love the feel of this insert. It is very soft and stretchy. The Sherpa can also hold up to 2 cups of fluid. The Sherpa can be folded in half or in thirds to use as an insert, soaker or booster. It can also be used with a fastener just like a prefold. The Sherpa measure 12" x 14" and fits 8-25 pounds when used with a fastener. The insert is made of 2 thick layers of fabric.
Because the Sherpa is so thickly woven, they take a lot of prep before they reach their full absorbency. The website says 7-8 washes, but I washed it even more before we used it. You can also prewash in hot water with vinegar or boil for 12 minutes with a drop of dish soap.
