Thirsties has been busy this year! First they introduced a new print (how cute was Polka Dance?), then they came out with a line of wet bags and pail liners (I’m LOVING how generously sized the pail liners are!) and now we’re pleased to help reveal their latest product update – new and improved hook and loop material!
The size of both the laundry tabs and the bullet (which is the “hook” fabric on the wings of the diaper) have increased so that they are now 33-100% larger than they were before! (The previous laundry tab was 1×1.5 inches, the size 1 bullet was 1×1.75 inches, and the size 2 bullet was 1×2.25 inches. Now, the bullet and laundry tab on all diapers of any size are 1.5×2 inches!) The increased size means that it will be harder for your baby to peel off (the wider the hook and loop is, the more difficult it is to peel it apart) and will stay snug at the waist.
In addition, the old hook and loop was “slit selvedge”, which meant that the hook and loop components were cut from a larger piece of material, making it prone to fraying. The new hook and loop is “true selvedge”, which means that the fabric is woven to the correct width (no cutting involved!) and should hold up better over time.
If you’ve ever been turned off or wary of hook and loop closures because your baby could undo the diaper or it didn’t wear well, this is your chance to try Thirsties NEW and improved hook and loop closures! Thirsties is giving one lucky reader a chance to win TWO diapers with the new closures (in the winner’s choice of size, style, and color/print!)
