Did you know that?? I just made a small slit in mine to replace the back elastic and the middle layer in the nappy is a blueish coloured synthetic fluffy fibre that I can only guess is MF!! I never knew that....

We were the first to discover that bamboo was one of the most absorbent fibres to use but when woven and made into nappies we found that it does have a tendancy to shrink. Nick searched far and wide and found a factory that would knit the fibre into our fabric, thus creating a non-shrink, non-pull bamboo nappy. You see, by using a fine microfibre for the inside of the nappy (where baby sits) it allows moisture to be drawn away from the skin. This also allows for the nappy to “spin out” in the washing machine as many bamboo nappies will take an age to dry.
