can you put bamboo boosters against the skin?

Postby mummymarps » Fri Feb 12, 2010 5:51 pm

Hi,

Well, can you? I'm looking to get some more boosters. I already have some hemp ones which i use a MF insert on top. Can i use bamboo on top or is it not as fast absorbing?

Thanks

I've always used bamboo on top of hemp.

yep, bamboo is quite a fast absorbing fabric and will work on top

I get my bamboo terry from EcoEarth fabrics, the cheaper version is £9.95 a metre which will make lots of boosters.

You could top it with a layer of bamboo velour for softness, someone on eBay is selling it at £3.95 a half-metre which is very,very cheap. I would only use it for the top layer though; it's not that absorbent compared to the terry.
