Bamboo Double Loop Terry Fabric Quantity = number of yards.
70% bamboo viscose 28% organic cotton 2% polyester. Imported.
Width 62" wide.
Weight 300 gsm | 18 oz per yard.
Bamboo and organic cotton blend fabric. The fabric has terry loops ("bath towel" loops) on both sides, which is why it is called double loop terry. Creamy natural color. Extremely absorbent, heavyweight 300 g/m2. Perfect for cloth diapers, soakers, boosters, mama cloth pads, nursing pads. Or the world's most incredibly pampering plush bathrobe!
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. If you line dry Bamboo Double Loop Terry it stays soft.
Shrinkage is minimal, so no need to prewash. Also, the fabric will fluff up with washing, so it is easier to sew unwashed. Use a universal or ball point needle. There is slight stretch, so a walking foot is helpful.

It is just so squishy soft. Washes really nicely. Used for cloth wipes and diaper inserts.

Nice quality, very absorbent. I made 5 layer diaper inserts. Works great.

I used 2 layers in a snake snap in soaker and works great for daytime couple hours. And is very easy to sew with.

I use 4 layers for my basic inserts for diapers. The inserts are extremely "thirsty" and last for a long time. 6-8 layers work great for nighttime or extended wear. I haven't found another fabric I like better for absorbency!

I use 6 layers of this (3 sewn-in, and 3 as a snap insert) in my AIO diapers, and it stays soft wash after wash, even when line drying. Love it. The only thing I would say is it does not stay white if it's your top layer, it stains easily. I top it with suedecloth which never stains.

Super soft and fluffy and great for inserts!

This is the softest, most plush and absorbant fabric! It does tend to shed some with the first few prewashes and can be terribly thick to sew multiple layers. But it is still one of my favorites for absorption.

I bought a yard to make cloth wipes. They are SO soft, squishy and absorbent! I made about 30 wipes out of a yard. About to order more to make some for my friends
