With the uncertainty of the safety of the chemicals used to make disposable menstrual pads, a lot of women are switching to cloth. Today’s cloth pad’s are very different from what your grandmother is used to. Today, they are waterproof, snap in place, are absorbent, you can even toss them in the washer and dryer! They also come in every fabric imaginable. So, you can find any pad to match your personality.
You can even use them as an everyday pantyliner, or even an incontinent pad.
I make them in 4 different sizes. Mini is approximately 21cm (8 inches) long; Regular is approximately 27cm (10 1/2 inches) long; Long is approximately 32cm (12 1/2 inches) long; Heavy/Postpartum is approximately 36cm (14 inches) long; Wings are approximately 18cm (7 inches) across
Outer layers are 100% cotton flannel, with a hidden layer of waterproof PUL (waterproof material used in cloth diaper making)
