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 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.

This fabric is great for cloth diaper liners!

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.

This is my best selling stay dry fabric interior! It has a wonderful velvet feel and I put it in my sons diapers. He has never had diaper rash since we began using it!

Washes well, doesn't stain. I tested some on my son's first birthday bib which I thought he might destroy with all the cake, strawberries, and pizza. But, the bib washed up very well and NO stains! Loves it in diapers too.

Soft, easy to work with, and great price! I trust DSS White Alova Suedecloth for the inner part of all the diapers I sew for my son.

Love the stuff I bought here. I've tried other suedecloth and it pilled horribly after just a few washes. This, so far, still looks new and it is softer than others I've used as well. And it's very easy to sew.

We are using this fabric to line the inside of our PUL diapers. It wicks moisture to the bamboo inserts that are inside the diaper and it does a nice job of keeping my grandson's skin dry. I have not had any problems sewing with it and so far, poopy diapers have been easly to clean. The poop doesn't seem to stick to the fabric very well which is a plus!
