Nappy fabrics

Post by flutterby on Mon Mar 01, 2010 6:57 pm

The main fabrics are bamboo, cotton, hemp and microfibre, but these are then divided further, I'll try and explain as best I can

Bamboo
Bamboo terry, knit fabric with teeny loops, very silky when new, slimmer than cotton
Bamboo fleece, like sweatshirt fabric, jersey one side, fleecey to other, also very soft when new
Bamboo jersey, like t-shirt material
Bamboo velour knit fabric, smooth one side, shaved loops on the other, again so so soft

Cotton
Cotton terry, knit fabric with teeny loops
Cotton fleece, like sweatshirt fabric, jersey one side, fleecey to other
Cotton jersey, like t-shirt material
Cotton velour knit fabric, smooth one side, shaved loops on the other, very soft


Hemp
Hemp terry, knit fabric with teeny loops, stretchy
Hemp fleece, like sweatshirt fabric, jersey one side, fleecey to other
Hemp jersey, like t-shirt material

Microfibre
A manmade material very soft, very fluffy, and catches on dry skin (if youve felt it you'll know what I mean)

PROs and CONs

Bamboo
Slim, very absorbent, very soft, antibacterial, but takes an age to dry

Cotton
Not as soft, slim or absorbent as bamboo, but dries quite quickly

Hemp
Again
very slim and absorbent, but not that soft and can go very stiff, dries
a little quicker than bamboo, absorbs slowly so often needs something
fast absorbing on top

microfibre
Stays soft, dries very quickly, quite bulky, and can squish out wee when compressed
