So far so good. It’s easy to work with and easy enough to sew. Seems to soak up a lot of liquid!
It was so convenient and fast to buy my material from Wazoodle Fabrics! Loved having it delivered to my home.
But it’s more than quality and shipping. This is a small, family owned business and they do their absolute best to do things in excellence. I love Wazoodle. I’ve been a customer for 3 years.
We are making reusable menstrual pads this year for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for girls ages 10-14. I found Amy Nix’s youtube tutorials and she uses Zorb in her pads (and recommends Wazoodle). I bought 60” wide and used a rotary cutter / mat to cut through double layers. It is a tough (in a good way) material, but also light weight and flexible. I sandwiched a layer of Zorb between two pieces of flannel and stitched the layers together to make the core. My sewing machine had no problems with the Zorb. I did run a scrap under running water and it saturated VERY quickly. I squeezed out the water and left it to dry. It was dry in a couple of hours. I think Zorb was a great recommendation! Shipping was fast! I appreciate the emails.
Zorb® Original Fabric (W-202)
I use this fabric as the main core for maxipads for my cloth maxipad bussines (Designer Pads by LXG), it is a great quality fabric at a great price! I owe my bussines succes to this Zorb fabric. It's super absorbent and I like that I can do multiple layers for extra absorbency, my clients love the pads absorbency. I highly recommend!
I bought this to make nursing pads, which was recommended by the pattern maker. It was exactly what was needed. Unfortunately, I had to buy a yard, but it is what I needed to make nursing pads. I still have 3/4 a yard left.
I love zorb fabric! I use it to make guinea
Pig bedding. It’s so absorbent & works wonders!
I own my own small business and I use Zorb almost exclusively for my products. It's the absolute best for absorption! I have tried everything out there and Zorb is the winner!
Always arrives quickly, which is a must sometimes when I have unexpected orders. I can't say enough wonderful things about Zorb or Wazoodle, simply the best! 🙂
