We knit the microfibre yarn onto the base rather than weave it to ensure that it does not shrink which helps the microfibre nappies last and last and keep lovely and white.
The nappy has a velcro fastening as I found that using poppers was just a pain when you are doing night-time changes in the dark. As long as the velcro is closed back onto its laundry tabs before it goes into the wash it will keep doing what it is supposed to do for years. We also have a unique cross over velcro tab designed to fit your baby from very tiny through all the shape changes they will go through till they get to the stage that they do not need nappies any more. (Yes, this does happen eventually!).
We have added elastic to the back seam - something that many nappy designers miss out. I think that this is because they have not had to manage an explosion when every thing shoots up baby's back.
I have also found the softest elastic to use around the waist and leg of the nappy. This baby-soft elastic along with the adjustable waist band will stop any rubbing and chaffing as I hate seeing that. The elastic will last for years. We do not offer an "re-elasticating service" for our nappies as we simply do not need to. Just ensure you use the dry bucket system and your nappies will last for baby after baby. Dirty Littlelamb nappies only need to be stored in a dry bucket before you have enough for a load. There's no need to soak nappies anymore as washing machines, detergents and nappy materials have advanced so much since Grandma's day.

Ours wraps fit perfectly over the nappies. With added side gussets and crossover waist tabs they adjust so you get the correct fit everytime. I found poppers were too fixed, or there were just too many and looked a mess. Our wraps stay white, look trim and slim and neat. They also stay soft rather than go crunchy like the old-school plastic wraps. Littlelamb wraps are made from a baby-soft laminated polyester knit so they're waterproof yet breathable. The laminate waterproofing inside the wrap is a microscopic honeycomb with the gaps big enough to let air molecules pass thus reducing the temperature inside the nappy but small enough to stop the larger fluid molecules.
Littlelamb wraps also have gently elasticated waist and thighs which prevents those up-to-the-neck poo explosions found with other nappy system and providing the "dry bucket system" is used (no soaking, no bleach - just pop in the bucket, then chuck in the washer when you have a load and let the machine do all the work) your wraps will last for years and still look and feel great.

Choosing the correct fabric for your lifestyle is essential for you and your baby.
COTTON NAPPIES are the great all rounder. They're robust and will last successive babies, have good absorption and are competitively priced.
BAMBOO NAPPIES are more expensive but are much more absorbent than cotton, less bulky and so, so silky soft.
MICROFIBRE NAPPIES are made from polyester fleece and are the quick-dry nappies of the washable world. Like a fleece jumper they come out of the washer almost dry.
POCKET NAPPIES are made from a combination of the above fabrics- giving you the ultimate fabric nappy.
