Zorb® And The Three Generations
The Three Generations of ZORB®
Zorb is a family of specialty super absorbent and safe fabrics designed to improve performance in reusable cloth articles. They are thin, hypoallergenic, chemical free and amazingly absorbent. Their ability to soak fluids quickly and hold a lot makes them useful as a cost effective solution to a wide range of products that require holding power and absorbency.
Zorb Original (1st Generation) is a non-woven that has to be sandwiched between two fabrics. It does not shrink or stretch. For larger items it should be quilted onto another fabric with stitching at least every six-12 inches. NO PRE-WASH.
Zorb 2 (2nd Generation) does not need to be sandwiched and has 2 versions - Dimples and Diamond - each has a different construction, as the names suggest, both designed for efficient absorption.
Zorb 2 Dimples has a bamboo/organic cotton knitted face on both sides with a stuffing on super-absorbent Zorb fibers between them.
Zorb 2 Diamond has wicking polyester on one side and bamboo/organic cotton on the other side with a stuffing on super-absorbent Zorb fibers between them.
Zorb 3D (3rd Generation) has four versions - 3 in the Dimple design and 1 in Diamond - they all have durable knitted faces and Zorb fibers stuffed in between. All of them are pre-shrunk to some extent but may shrink a little more.
Zorb 3D Organic Cotton Dimple has 100% organic cotton on both faces
Zorb 3D Bamboo Dimples has 70/30 bamboo/cotton on both faces and
Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimples has 100% wicking polyester on both faces.
