Cloth Menstrual Pads Fabric Finder

What is the best fabric combination for cloth menstrual pads? It's a tough choice as we have a lot of fabrics available that can serve your needs, but we're here to help you sort through the noise. We have partnered with AKAS Tex, Lycra, CoolMax, Cotton Inc & Silvadur to design & create the best fabrics for making cloth menstrual pads. We broke down their construction and provided a list of fabrics for each layer so that finding the best combinations is easier than ever. 

Cloth pads can be made in lots of different styles. Here we will look at the 3-layer cloth pads which includes a soft moisture wicking layer, an absorbent core layer with a thin waterproof layer for leak-proof protection. Additionally, you can use our 2-in-one absorbent+waterproof fabrics that combine 2 layers into one which request less sewing saving you time and money in the process.

As you can see, it's not a question of, "What is the best fabric combination?", but rather, "What are the best fabric combinations and which will work best for me?" It all depends on the design of the underwear and your personal preference. 

We do recommend you purchase a swatch first, so you can see and feel the fabric before purchasing a larger quantity for your specific application.
