What is the difference between Indian and Chinese Prefolds? Indian Prefolds are softer, thicker, a bit smaller and significantly more durable. These are twill weave cotton which is a heavier and more absorbent and durable than gauze used in "Chinese" prefolds. The material needs is washed prior to weaving to minimize shrinking. The finished diapers quilt up nicely, are very soft and durable, lint free and extremely absorbent.
