I am pleased to announce I finally perfected the handmade washable tampons! I am offering them in a set of three at the present.
They are hand crocheted by me using 100% cotton thread in ercu and they are filled with a circle of natural bamboo(90%)cotton(10%) interlock fabric that is serged on the raw edge. The bamboo fabric is higly absorbent, much more so than cotton. This construction allows for ease of separating the lining and the tampon shell for washing, boiling (if desired) and for air drying. The pull string is braided and is part of the construction so it cannot slip. Instructions for washing will be included. What a great way to start your efforts to "go green". Think of the money you will save as well!
They are chemical free unlike store brand disposables, so they are safer to use.
They carry the same risk of toxic shock syndrome as with any tampon and should be changed every 4 hours. They can be inserted with the finger or a disposable lollipop stick available from the craft store, if desired.
They can be customized for you if you want larger or smaller more slender ones. I would say these are for medium flow.
Please email me with any questions. Larger orders will need to allow slightly more time.
NOTE: OK I got bored, I added another color choice, I call it Neapolitian because its the color of the ice cream. You can have one your choice of plain beige or neapolitian tri colors!
The last picture shows slender, medium and super sized!
Just convo me if you want a special combination in your set.

To stuff the lining you fold the circle in half, over a chopstick, fold in half again, fold in half again and then twist to insert into shell and pull shell down over the insert. Use chopstick to tuck in the loose ends. REMEMBER the tampon is as large as it will get. It will not expand like disposable ones.
Here is what a customer recently said about the product:

"I don't normally buy non applicator tampons. I hardly noticed it was there. I didn't have a problem with leakage. It was easy to take out and very easy to wash. I thought it would take me a while to wash off. But I soaked it, as per your instructions and machine washed and they were very easy to clean off and use again. I am one satisfied customer! Not only am I convert to this alternative method, but I feel good knowing that I'm doing good for my body and the environment. I am planning to buy more for next month! I would be more than happy to testify on your product. It's unique and very much a needed item." Etsy customer

Another customer gave feedback: "These are some of the most awesome things I've ever bought on Etsy!"

"i'm really happy with them. thanks for such a cool product. :-)" Etsy customer

"I am so surprised how well these work! They are very absorbant and, after a short soak, wash out surprisingly well." Recent Etsy customer
