Baby Soft ™ White Alova Suedecloth Fabric Quantity = number of yards.
100% polyester. Imported.
This suedecloth is a first quality fabric. It is discounted because it is difficult to import white fabric. Some yards may have dirt marks, most of the marks should wash out. If you are not able to pre-wash this fabric, consider getting a bit extra for your project in order to work around any marks.
Width 58/60" wide
Weight 175gsm | 10 oz per yard
Alova suedecloth is an ideal wicking layer for cloth diapers and is easy to sew. The front side of alova suedecloth is very soft with a short fuzzy nap, and the back is smooth. Suedecloth is a woven fabric, so it does not stretch. It has a soft and supple hand.
Suedecloth is used for the inside layer of cloth diapers, especially pocket diapers, when a stay-dry feeling is desired. This fabric pulls moisture away from the skin and into the absorbant layers. It can be used for the entire inside layer, or just to top a soaker. It has a major benefit for parents - solid waste (poop) just shakes or sprays right off. Suedecloth is also used for clothing and crafts.
Care Machine wash warm, tumble dry.
Sewing Do not prewash, does not shrink; Use regular or universal needle; Sew diapers with polyester thread to prevent wicking.

This fabric is very easy to work with. Cuts nicely and doesn't stretch. Will be purchasing more

I was disappointed with this fabric, it felt "scratchy" when rubbed over the back of my hand, washed it a couple of times and it still felt rough. Won't be sewing it into any diapers but will find another use for it.

After trying the microfleece and the athletic wicking, this is my favorite liner fabric. It doesn't stretch, it is easy to sew and looks very nice not to mention that it doesn't stain and washes up nicely.

I used this for the inside of some diapers and I'm really happy with it. Easy to cut and sew because it doesn't stretch, and it really does feel dry when it's wet! It is also is really easy to shake solids off of and seems to be washing well so far.

This is MUCH better than the Alova Suede I purchased from JoAnn’s. It is softer and thicker, very rich, nice feel. Handles well with thick fabrics on the serger. I make separate soakers that snap into the pul shells. For the first petal I use Alova on top, a layer of fast absorbing microfiber terry and then dimple Zorb on the bottom layer, then I make a second shorter petal of two layers of Zorb. I attach the second petal below the snaps. The two petals dry faster as they flip open. Shells can be just wiped and used again if not dirty.

I had ordered some a year ago and thought it was very nice. However, when I got this order, it's so much better! It's really white and much softer. I love it! And so will the babies' bums!

Alot thicker and softer than what Joanns sold me. Very happy with purchase and fast shipping.

I made a variety of cloth diapers for a friend, and used this material on about a third of them. It is so easy to cut, easy to sew--just all around great to work with! No reports as to how it functions yet, but I will definitely be buying more to use in my other diapers and soakers.
