here's a new one...

Postby rhead » Sun Nov 16, 2008 12:49 pm

I just washed a load of nappies including a bamboo booster - 1st time I've used it but I don't think it was new - and it came out huge! Like, nearly an inch wider and longer (I compared it to another one). I've heard of things shrinking in the wash, but not growing! It's not bamboo terry, it's a smooth, stretchy finish... :shock:

Never heard of that happening before! Maybe it'll shrink back to shape as it dries? hmm weird!

Weirdly enough, it does shrink down to its former size veeerrrrrrry sloooooowly as it dries. It's a stretchy bamboo from Tibabi in France. :wink:

I came across some stretch bamboo whilst searching for bamboo terry, though I imaging it wouldn't be fun to sew, I might have a go as it's cheaper, whats the absorbency like compared to normal bamboo terry!

Nope not had that here either - what's the fabric like for absorbency?

I haven't actually used them too much, but they're very slim (but heavy, if that makes sense? must be much denser than bamboo terry) and seem fairly absorbent - I stuck two in a Preston's Pants pocket and it easily lasted 4 hours, but DD is a very erratic wetter. :mrgreen:
