- Bamboo French Terry Fabric
Super soft and extremely comfortable. Our french terry is perfect for loungewear, tees, infant and children's wear, layette, cloth diapers, wipes and so much more. Creamy natural color. Very nice quality, takes dye beautifully.
Sold by the yard. Quantity = number of yards
Note: French terry is NOT a loop terry like bath toweling. The right side of the fabric is smooth. The back side has small loops that lay flush with the fabric surface, giving a textured appearance. You see this fabric in the apparel market used for sweatpants and sweatshirts, hoodies, and so on. It is becoming increasingly popular for cloth diapers as a trim yet absorbent fabric.
- 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. Certified Lead-Free.
- 70% bamboo viscose 30% certified organic cotton.
- Generous 66 inches wide. Minimal shrinkage.
- 280 g/m2 | 20 oz per linear yard
Machine wash and dry like a cotton fabric.
How do I sew bamboo french terry?
- Use a universal or ball point needle
- There is slight stretch, so a walking foot is helpful.
- Shrinkage is minimal so prewashing is generally not necessary.

I've been looking at different fabric choices for flat diapers and had heard this suggested. I got a sample swatch to try out. It wasn't quite what I expected. It's smooth and flat, perfect for a flat diaper! It would be great for pretty much anything diaper/baby/nursing related where absorbacy and trimness are needed, really.
Wash cloth for my baby

Based on one of the reviews, I bought this and cut into squares and use them as wash cloths for my infant. They soften up after every wash and I just love these. I got so many wash cloths for a lot lesser price And I cannot find this quality wash cloths anywhere.
Snappi works on smooth side!

This fabric is perfect for my fitted diapers! I prefer to use a snappi to get a great fit, but it has been hard to find a fabric that is durable, snappi-able, and absorbent. This fabric is perfect in all three ways! It's very trim, and has just enough stretch to make it perfect for a diaper (but still easy to work with!) LOVE this Bamboo French Terry!!

I use this fabric for the inserts and inner layer of my diapers. It is sooo soft. It is quite trim and absorbs well. I use two three layer inserts and one full body layer.
Great for diaper inserts

I use this fabric to make my cloth diaper inserts. I love it! It's both absorbent and thin. I make my inserts using two layers of the bamboo French terry, a stay-dry layer on top, and a fun flannel print on the bottom. We use two inserts at a time, and the total thickness is about the same as the disposable inserts we have for the daycare. Easy to sew, washes well, and doesn't take too long to dry.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!! Sewing up 2 layer flat folds with it. It is super absorbent, really soft and makes for a very trim diaper! Very easy to sew, no serger needed with this fabric. A walking foot is helpful, but you can get it done without one.

Soft, absorbent and easy to sew both by serging or turn and topstitch. I like this material for the two layer trifold inserts I make for my pocket diapers. This works great for my two year old and she can go for about 2 hours with just one insert.
Very Soft and lovely

I have used a couple different products for my diaper soakers, but I LOVE this. It is soft and not incredibly stretchy - just perfect. It is very thin, so makes a nice trim diaper soaker. I will be using this for my soaker in addition to the hemp french terry for heavy wetters.
