  • The Zorb fabric knitting construction is free from super absorbent polymers. Because chemicals aren’t used in Zorb products, their super absorbency lasts as long as the fabric does.

  • All Zorb fabrics are designed to absorb more over time, and using multiple layers of Zorb can increase how much your product absorbs, exponentially.

  • CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.

Product Uses: Burp diapers
Washed great

I bought this to make burp diapers for new born gifts. Once sewn they washed up great and stayed very flat. I think these will be much better than the pre-folded cloth diapers I used to use. Thanks for the speedy deivery!

Product Uses: To soak up water to plants
Works great in a greenhouse

I was having difficulty finding a fabric I could put in the bottom of a hydroponic cup to soak water up to the plant. Any fabric just won't do. Zorb though wicked water right up to the plant. The roots grow down through the fabric well and the plant gets plenty of nutrients. We would cut it into about 7 inch long strips, tie a knot on one end and suspend it within the 960 spot hydroponic system. Works great!

Product Uses: Cage liners
Works perfect

I use this in my guinea pigs cage. Easy to work with, very absorbent and yet lightweight

Product Uses: Cloth Sanitary Pads
Zorb Original

I'm learning to sew cloth pads and this is now my preferred core fabric. Easy to work with and cut and it sews well to my flannel core liners.

M
Michelle Harkins (Omaha, US)
Sewing Tips: Doesn't fray at all. Cuts very easy.
Product Uses: Inserts for cloth diapers
Amazing fabric

I brought this to make inserts for my son's cloth diapers. Out of 3 yards, I got 42 inserts. And I plan on buying more at al after time for more inserts and possibly cloth pads.

Product Uses: Mostly feeding tube pads.
First time user

Product Uses: Dog diapers
excellent

Exactly what I wanted and quick service

J
John Mathews (Beaufort, US)
Sewing Tips: I am not the seamstress, just the business admin. The seamstress seems to prefer working with the ZORB over the u-haul pads
Product Uses: As previously mentioned, it is the absorbent layer between two layer of fleece.
Good product for a customer alternative

We make to order fleece cage liners for small pets, mostly guinea pigs, and pet pads for crates and such with an absorbent middle layer. Generally we use a u-haul furniture pad which consist of recycled denim for the absorbent layer, it is about 1/3 the cost of ZORB but many of our customers know of, have used and would like ZORB to be used in the cage liners and pads that their pets use so we offer it as a substitute at a slightly increased price over the u-haul pads.
My own test, for the applications that we use both products for, prove the ZORB to be a superior product in several regards, rate of absorption and holding of liquid.

J
Janice Worsley (Peoria, US)
Great product

Great fabric! Use it for quilted mug rugs and coasters instead of batting.

R
Roxanne Schiffbauer-Sposato (Newport, US)
Sewing Tips: I used an embroidery needle when machine stitching as it’s the same as a batting.
Product Uses: Absorbent mats for bed.
Zorb

This fabric is awesome! Absolutely the best absorption of any other fabric I’ve used.
