Specifications

Details


  • 2nd Generation super-absorbent hypoallergenic fabric with superior holding capacity can be used on its own, not as an interlining, so it's ideal for reducing cost, increasing product performance and supporting the environment.
  • Absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than other material (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits)
  • One side is an absorbent bamboo & organic cotton, the other is polyester. The polyester side quickly wicks moisture into the thirsty Zorb® fibers between the layers.
  • Unique, three-dimensional engineered diamond pattern provides greater retention, superior hold, faster distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression
  • Perfect for single layer pre-folds, soakers, changing pads, fitted diapers, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, play mats and many more consumer, medical & incontinence products.
  • A single layer will replace 3 layers of microfiber terry and 6 of french terry

Zorb® 2 PRO TIPS

Use multiple layers to increase absorbency exponentially.

Care Instructions
Pre-wash for shrinkage if needed, Wash medium, Dry medium, No Fabric softener, No Bleach, Warm iron if needed
  • Pre-wash on hot for shrinkage, if required, in as large a piece as possible. However it is easier to cut and sew before washing.
  • If you want to avoid pre-washing, calculate shrinkage and add a suitable allowance to your pattern to allow for later shrinkage.
  • It can be washed using home or industrial equipment and additives. It's absorbency is not effected by hard water or with natural detergent deposits.
  • It will stand up to very hot wash and dry, however you can expect additional shrinkage, up to 20% and fulling, up to 50% of the fabric when dried hot.

Sewing Notes:

Serging Zorb® 2 requires well tuned machines and moderate serging experience. Sewing with dull or poorly setup knives will stretch and break yarns to the left of the needles which will appear as pinholes after a few washes.

Important Note about Shrinkage
All natural fiber knits will shrink further. Percent shrinkage has been tested in a controlled lab. It may vary under different wash/dry conditions and from batch to batch.
It is recommended to test shrinkage on a small piece first and then pre-wash whole yardage at the setting that your finished stitched item will be washed.

Quantity Information
Quantity = number of continuous yards or number of cuts. If you want a continuous piece, select the yard(s) option. All ½ yard cuts, 20 inch cuts, 22 inch cuts, & 24 inch cuts (if available) will be sent as separate cuts of chosen length.

My preferred material for diapers.
I love this product and keep reordering it. I wish I could afford to buy a bolt at a time rather than by 5 yard lots.

Very absorbent but did not shrink like description.
I love this product. It absorbs so much! It is easy to sew on my serger. The fabric did NOT shrink after two hot washes and 3 hot dryer cycles.

My preferred material for diapers.
It is a little difficult to serge more than one layer but worth the effort for the result.

Review by BF / (Posted on 6/27/2016)
it does not shrink
Double layering thus fabric makes a perfect low profile diaper insert. I give the product 5 stars but the description 3. I measured and calculated before cutting and serging then washed and dried 3x in hot. Shrinking and bulking was minimal. I ended up having to cut them all smaller resulting in wasted fabric! I feared washing 1st would cause too much bulk (it says up to 2x thickness) for it to fit in the serger. Know now I would wash and dry 1st then cut and sew. Other than that it works great, has held up to lots if washing and breastmilk poo stains bleach out easily in the sun.

This stuff is soft and freakishly absorbent. Good stuff!
I had no idea this stuff would really be so absorbent for diapering. I bought it after scouring the internet trying to find absorbent materials for dog diapers/male wraps. This stuff is soft and freakishly absorbent. Good stuff!
