Absorbent fabrics are used to soak up liquid in cloth diapers. All of these absorbent fabrics can be made into inserts or soakers, can be used to line the inside of a pocket diaper or AIO, and can make fitted diapers. Absorbent fabrics can also be used for apparel and fashion sewing. Click on any of the links below for details on our absorbent fabrics made from bamboo, hemp, or cotton.

This is a measure of how heavy a fabric is, NOT how thick it is - Bamboo French Terry is thinner than Bamboo Fleece for instance. This does give a rough absorbency comparison. All work well for cloth diapers. Order sample swatches of these fabrics here.
