Labeling fiber content for Zorb

Friday, March 21, 2014 1:10:21 PM America/New_York

Zorb® is made using a proprietary blend of wicking and absorbing fibers that give it its unique absorbing and wicking properties. Fiber content for Zorb does not need to be disclosed when it is used in diapers or soakers.

We continue to get questions about the fiber content of Zorb for labeling the finished articles. Zorb is an interlining that is NOT used for providing warmth in articles. Only if the interlining is added to an article to provide warmth it has to be disclosed, otherwise it is not required. This is in compliance with both US and Canada regulations. Regulations of other countries also possibly have the same requirements given the global trading of textile products. To explain it clearly we have compiled information from the US and Canada regulations below.

ZORB is one of the few specialty materials designed specifically to reduce cost while improving performance in cloth diapers.  It's inexpensive, durable, easy to work with and in most cases will simply swap out any existing material used in a diaper design. ZorbII is a uniquely designed and contructed speciality fabric in which the absorbent fibers that make up Zorb have been embedded between the two faces of a double knit fabric, essentially it's like having three layers as one.
