Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to read Shop Policies:)

-- Can I get a 10″ pad with Bamboo Velour? --
Unless you plan to use it on light flow days I wouldn't recommend it. Bamboo Velour is soft, silky, and feels nice next to skin. It is quick absorbing and wicking. If the flow is very heavy or sudden, it could wick and cause side leak. MicroFleece doesn’t wick or hold liquid. The liquid passes right though and gets absorbed by the absorbent layers inside, so there are fewer chances of side leaks. This is why I use Bamboo Velour for Light pads and MicroFleece for Medium, although this is mostly my personal preference, and I am very cautious about leaks.

-- Can I get these pads without PUL – Coming Soon
I used to make pads with no waterproof (PUL), and now I plan to be making an improved version. I’ve been asked recently by several people if I could make the pads without PUL. The style of pads currently listed in my shop is designed waterproof in mind. The liquid gets distributed and soaked by absorbent layers when it hits waterproof. With the stithching through top layer and internal hemp layers, if there in no waterproof, it would wick along the threads to the other side. (The stitching helps to quickly absorb and contain the flow.The liquids move vertically rather than spread horizontally). If more layers are added for more absorbancy, washing and drying may be a problem.
The “pocket” or “envelope” style helps with the issue of wicking and washing/drying. The downside would be that they would be a bit thicker.

-- Do you do wholesale orders? --
No. My profit margine is already very small, and I can make only limited quantity.

Additional policies and FAQs
We have a kitty in the house. Please be aware if you are allergic to cats.
Also, I use hemp and bamboo fabrics. Please be aware if you are allergic to hemp or bamboo. If irritation or allergic reaction occurs, please discontinue use.

Orders will be mailed in regular orange envelopes. I write "cloth pads" in custom form in international shipment including the US, but nothing like "feminine hygiene" or "menstrual products".

Usually I don't print out reciepts or laundry info to save paper. If you would like a reciept and/or laundry info enclosed with your order, please contact me.
Laundry info is located in Profile page.

***I do NOT take whole sale orders***
I wouldn't be able to give you any discounts on large orders. My profit is already very small. This is a one-woman operation. My cloth pads are time consuming to make and I don't have access to wholesale suppliers.

*** I am NOT interested in free giveaways, or ads on blogs.***

If you have any other question, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you very much.
