HumBird stretchy flats are made from 47 hemp, 38 organic cotton, 15 stretch terry polyester cloth fabric. These hemp flats have a 4 way stretch stretching 50% in one direction and 10% in the other. They do not feel like a "true" 4 way stretch as one direction is 10% but also they are not a "true" 2 way stretch as there is stretch, though much less in one direction, in all 4 directions.
This fabric is unbleached therefore contains colour variations. If you are uncomfortable with colour variations that can include darker spots. Returns are not excepted due to colour variations. On one side you will find a very soft smooth fabric and on the other side very tiny soft loops which give it the terry cloth name. The loops are very tiny and the flat can be worn with loops facing the baby or facing out. The flats are very stretchy and hook to snappis and boingos.
Flats are designed to be worn under a cover. Wool covers are my personal favourite and flats with a wool cover will allow your childs bum to breath and help keep diaper rash away.
Sizes-Flats are prewashed and dried.

Are you looking for an absorbency test. An independent person did the following test and I felt it important though while her test is much less than other testers the key here is she tested all these brands at once so the comparison is valid. This is the complete test.
Hi everyone ! A few weeks back I did a test/comparison of various flats in my local (Swedish) group and HumBird performed so well I thought it would be interesting for everyone here if I translated my little homemade experiment to English and posted it here.
I want to stress this is in NO way a very scientific or precise test, this is me playing around in my kitchen but it should give a pretty accurate estimate of how well these flats perform. Some common US brands (Im thinking Diaper Rite for example) are not in my test simply because we do not find these in the EU (if you wonder why some seemingly big names are missing).
The how: I weighted each flat diaper dry and fully prepped, soaked them in a bucket full of water, and hanged them to dry just long enough for the excess liquid to drip away. Then weighted again. I chose to rank the flats by absorption/cm2 (surface measured again by me to account for shrinkage) as otherwise it seems obvious the bigger flats would have absorbed more than the smaller ones which would have (in my opinion) given biased results
