Reusable Sanitary Pad Fabrics

Thursday, 7 February 2019

Reusable pads come in a variety of fabrics so there will be a pad for you no matter your requirements.  We stock pads made of cotton, bamboo, hemp and synthetic fabrics.  The drying speed and absorbency will vary depending on the fabric used.

Cotton – natural fabric, very absorbent, breathable, soft, average drying speed
Bamboo – viscose fabric, very absorbent, breathable, soft, very slow drying speed
Hemp – natural fabric, super absorbent but needs more prewashing than other fabrics, soft but can go harder over time, slow drying
Synthetic – Manmade, less absorbent, stays soft even in hard water areas, very quick drying.

It is common to have different pad sizes and pad fabrics for different days in your cycle. For heavier days the more absorbent fabric and longer pads will give you greater protection.  We try to include details of absorbency levels for each pad so you can easily compare your choices

Which ever fabric you choose we’re confident you’ll find your reusable cloth pads more comfortable than disposable pads.
