Absorbent Fleece - Cotton Bamboo


Sewing bee fabrics haberdashery and ribbons


This soft fleece is made up of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton and has a width of 170cm. It is like a sweatsuit fabric in that it has 1 flat side and 1 fluffy side. It has a 4 way stretch with a greater stretch across the width and a lesser amount across the length.

Bamboo fabrics are inherently good at absorbing moisture at a similar rate to microfiber which is why it has become so popular in making things like cloth nappies or mamma cloth. It is also a breathable and thermoregulating fabric meaning that it helps to keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold which makes it perfect for use against the skin.

Fabric weight is 340gsm

All fabrics will be cut as a continuous piece unless you ask us otherwise. In the unlikely event this isn’t possible we will always contact you first. 

Our fabrics are all hand cut with care, never torn.

We recommend that all of our fabrics are washed at 30°c or below to improve fabric durability and colour vibrancy.
