Is there anything softer than bamboo velour fabric? We doubt it! Bamboo velour is loved for cloth diapers and all sorts of clothing, as it is absorbant, breathable, and amazingly plush. Wonderful for dye projects. For instance, we have used it for wonderful hand-dyed scarves that you never want to take off. You may not know that bamboo velour starts as bamboo terry - the loops are trimmed and brushed to give the velour that soft hand. Creamy natural color.
Oeko-tex Standard 100. This is the highest Oeko-Tek international standard, meant for infant items that touch the skin, and certifies that the fibers used in this fabric are free of all known harmful substances.
Machine wash and dry.
Use a universal or ball point needle. Velour will stretch, so a walking foot is helpful. You could also stiffen with spray spray starch or basting glue before sewing. It will shrink about 5% when washed, so be sure to account for that.

Great topper for cloth pads!
Posted by Kelly on 9th Aug 2017
I bought this as a topper for cloth pads. It is spooo soft, and also adds to absorbency of the core, making my pads super thin. As a beginner, it was a bit tricky to sew with because it's very stretchy, but it wasn't too bad as long as you go slow. I also found that having the bamboo velour on the bottom to be helpful when sewing.

This is a very nice fabric. I used it to make two incontinence diapers for a client and he absolutely loves them. Extremely fast shipping. Great transaction. I'll be back.

Love this fabric. It is so soft and easy to work with. Yes it stretches a bit but I use it with 2 layers of bamboo heavy fleece and serge them all together. It makes for a very nice soft soaker.
My favorite fabric <3

I use this is almost every diaper I make! The only diapers that do not get it are because of customers who require different fabrics by choice. I highly recommend this product! PS, don't buy it all up though because I will be needing more!
Most Awesome Bamboo Velour!

When I read the reviews and description, I wasn't sure whether to order, as I am NOT an accomplished sewist of anything stretchy, knitted. WHen it arrived, I was immediately surprised with how lush it was. I have had bamboo velour pockets (blueberry) but this was even softer than that!
Then came the tracing/cutting/sewing...not so in love after that. It is quite stretchy, I don't know what a walking foot is ;) and I had to fight with this. Results: puckering and not my best work ever. Once I got to know the fabric a bit, I can offer this advice (for novices)...If you're using for soakers, I did a 3-layer soaker, so two of the layers are going with grainline, and the other is going against the grainline. Sandwiched them and then sewed into body of diaper...not perfect, but easier.
And Oh! The softness! I am envious of my son for having this against his bum, where I have plain old cotton knit ;) Also, the absorptive ability of this fabric is really impressive. I have a PL'ing 2-year old, and this fabric (whole body of BV, three layer soaker sewn in to a PUL shell) holds even the biggest oopses! I didn't think I would ever get to the point where I would recommend this to someone like me who doesn't sew knits well, but here I am. The plushness and softness outweigh any struggle with the fabric. I was able to get 7 trainer bodies and 21 soaker layers out of a yeard! What a deal!
