Absorbent Layers Fabric Finder for Cloth Menstrual Pads (or Feminine Pads)

Are you looking for the most absorbent material for your cloth menstrual pads? These super absorbent fabrics are manufactured in USA in quality-controlled facilities without using toxic chemicals or finishes and have been specially designed for making cloth menstrual pads!

Unlike other absorbent fabrics, our Ready-AbZORB™ fabrics don’t require pre-wash, which means you can use them the instant they're delivered to your door. Plus, our Zorb® Fabrics absorb 10 times their weight in under 2 seconds and soak up 20 times faster than other imported fabrics.

We recommend using Zorb Original or Zorb 3D Dimples LITE as your first choice absorbent fabric.

Zorb Original is an interlining type of material, so it will need to be stitched or serged between 2 layers of fabric before use. 

Zorb 3D Dimples LITE is by far the best option because it is thin yet super absorbent and does not need to be interlined between fabrics. We have 3 different styles available in the Zorb 3D Dimples (Bamboo, Polyester and Organic Cotton). You can use either of the 3 materials as the absorbent layer in your cloth menstrual pads depending on your design preference.

Zorb 3D Dimples Heavy Duty is preferred if you're looking for the most absorbent option.

Antimicrobial Silver fabrics have been infused with silver ions to help control odor, create long lasting freshness and inhibit bacterial growth.

Choose from our Recommended Absorbent Cloth Menstrual Pad Fabrics, where each fabric is carefully selected and shop with ease knowing that each fabric is ideal for reducing cost, increasing your cloth menstrual pad's performance and supporting the environment.

In addition to the Absorbent Cloth Menstrual Pads Layer, you will also need a fabric for the Inner Moisture Wicking Stay Dry Cloth Menstrual Pads Layer and for the Outer Waterproof PUL Cloth Menstrual Pads Cover.
