Materials

Super heavy organic bamboo fleece, Heavyweight organic flannel, Organic bamboo velour, Softshell fleece, Kam snap

Dimensions

Pad length: 12 in

Organic bamboo velour topper, soft and comfortable next to your skin.
OBV is both super soft and absorbent, it will quickly soak away any fluid into the core of the pad.
The core absorbent part of this 12" pad is made up from a layer of heavyweight cotton flannel and a layer of super heavy organic bamboo fleece ( SHOBF ), working together, they form a regular flow pad.
Marked by the three droplets on the tag. It's very handy to know what rating your pad is.
The backer on this pad is a softshell fleece fabric, it is both breathable and water resistant.
The pad is worn with the OBV next to the skin and the fleece against your underwear.
A Kam snap is what holds the pad in place. It's advised to wear close snug underwear with your pads.
When cleaning the pads just rinse in cold water, never hot water as that will set any stain.
Wash on 30 - 40 degrees wash as usual, they can be put in with a normal wash load, or towels if you prefer.
Never use any fabric softener products, they compromise the absorbency of your pads.
Pads can be tumble dried on low but it is better to air dry them.
The initial cost of buying reusable cloth pads may seem quite high, but when you add up the growing cost of using disposable pads it works out much better for both you and the environment.
So far you have saved money by not using fabric softener, not using the dryer and not using disposables.

Comfort has got to be one of the best reasons for the switch. Cloth pads are soft and absorbent and don't contain any chemicals, which means they are better for you, and the environment.
Women have reported having lighter and less painful periods since using cloth, and with no rash or irritation.
They can be made to your choice of size and absorbency, you can decide which core materials are used and what fabric you prefer next to your skin.
Your skin absorbs whatever is put on it, think about face creams, body lotions or stop smoking patches, the harmful chemicals that go into the making of disposable sanitary towels are against a most sensitive area of your body.
It's worth giving cloth a try, to see for yourself.
Cloth sanitary pads (CSP) are snapped around the gusset of your close fitting underwear with a kam snap fastener.
This is what holds them in place.
The soft pretty side is worn next to your skin, we use patterned cottons or jersey, and organic fabrics like bamboo velour, which is hand dyed, and our undyed or bare organics.
The core or inner layers are manufactured by Wazoodle Fabrics in the USA. They specialise in absorbent and organic materials. How many layers will depend on what level of absorbency you need.
The backer is a water resistant layer of specialist fleece, or in liners it's corduroy, which is also to helps keep the pad from sliding around in the underwear.
These are all designed to be soft comfortable and fully reusable.
By using the best quality absorbent fabrics available we hope to eliminate any problems with leaking.
Making sure you're in the right absorbency of pad helps too.
All of our pads have indicator tags sewn into them with between one and four drops on. A heavy pad will easily absorb a light flow, but a light drop pad will not cope well with a heavy flow.
We can all get caught out by an unexpectedly heavy period, and even disposables leak when that happens.
As with everything, once it is saturated it will leak.
However, the beauty of cloth pads is that you don't have to keep a pad on to feel like you're getting your moneys worth.
Change the pad whenever you begin to feel uncomfortable.
Wash the pad, dry it and its ready to reuse again.
After using your CSP rinse off any blood in cold water, not hot as that will set the stain. Wash as normal on a 30° or 40° wash load.
NEVER use any fabric softener with cloth pads. Softener is designed to smooth out fibres, and this makes liquids run off, and makes them less absorbent.
I find that soap nuts are the best washing product for pads as they are totally natural and don't contain any chemicals.
Pads can be tumble dried on a low heat cycle, but they are best line dried in the fresh air, sun and wind. The sun helps to naturally fade out any stubborn stains. Solar and wind power are free, so saving you money.
So rinse in cold water, wash in machine or by hand, no softener and line dry.

    Mo is a fabulous seller with her customer's satisfaction in full focus. Really enjoyed the whole buying process from her. Of course it was Etsy who made the process simple but Mo injected the human element of communication and finishing touches within the package.
    The pads are comfortable and a perfect shape, for me anyway. Her fabrics are quality and they are made very professionally. I like knowing I have supported a small business with a huge message.
    Thanks Mo xx
