SAMPLE PIECE OF FABRIC
APPROX 15 X 15cm square


Unbleached/undyed natural hemp and cotton fabric.

Weight: 195gsm (weight increases a little after washing as the fabric shrinks by about 10%)
Colour: natural
Oko Tex Standard 100

This hemp and cotton jersey is a lightweight fabric that is suitable for many uses: clothing and loungewear, blankets, tablecloths, napkins and much more. It takes dye very well so is ideal for dyeing with many methods. It feels like a lightweight cotton t-shirt, but with the slight slubbiness of hemp fabric! It has about 40% stretch.

Sustainably grown hemp and cotton is used to make this soft and drapey fabric. I have used it to make myself cardigans, t-shirts and harem trousers! It feels lovely to wear.

Comes as a tubular fabric that is 30 inches (75cm) wide, and opens out to 60 inches (150cm) wide.


Sold in the following lengths:

- fat quarter 20" (50cm) tall by 30" (75cm) wide

- half metre 20" (50cm) tall by 30" (75cm) tubular width, 60" (150cm) opened width

- metre 40" (100cm) tall by 30" (75cm) tubular width, 60" (150cm) opened width

If you are ordering half a metre and would prefer a "fat half" (100cm tall by 75cm wide) please leave a note at checkout. Multiple cuts in your order will be sent as one piece where possible.

This is sold off the roll and should be prewashed before dyeing or cutting, as it will shrink up to 10% after washing.


FAQs

Cloth menstrual pads are a wonderful alternative to disposable pads. Some of the reasons why many women are switching to reusable sanitary products are: - They are eco-friendly as they can be washed and used for years, keeping lots of paper and plastic out of landfill and our oceans. - Cloth pads are more comfortable to wear and there are no harsh gels or bleaches to irritate your intimate area. - They are also easy to wash and use - care instructions are included with your order. - They can be used as your usual menstrual products, or alongside a menstrual cup or disposable pads. - Sizes available from small pantyliners and thong pads, to night-time and post-partum pads.

Faery Fluff pads have a small tag sewn into the wing of each pad to indicate absorbency (when snapped, the tag will be underneath the other wing so it doesn't rub on your skin!) Pads can be made in five absorbency options. Pantyliner (PL) - one layer organic cotton flannel Light (L) - bamboo fleece Regular (R) - bamboo fleece x2 Heavy (H) - bamboo fleece x3 Superheavy (SH) – bamboo fleece x4

Faery Fluff pads range in size from 6 inches to 18 inches using the Versodile pattern. Although I am happy to take custom orders for whatever size you require, just convo me! Thong pads can be made 6, 7 and 8 inches long. Juliette pads can be made in 8, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5, 12.5 and 13.5 inches. They are about an inch longer than that due to the decorative pointed ends.

Pads can be stored dry after use. To prevent staining however, it is recommended to rinse in cold water and store damp, or in a pail of water. A little salt, bicarbonate of soda or a few drops of essential oils in the water will help prevent odours and bacteria growth. Wash at 40 or 60 degrees. (Washing at 40 is better for the pads and will prolong their lifespan). Do not use fabric conditioner as this will affect the absorbency of the pad. Can be tumble dried on a low heat. High heat is NOT a good idea as it can scorch the fabric. If you have any questions about the use of cloth pads, please do get in touch, I’m always happy to help.

Bamboo is a more sustainable crop than cotton. It requires less water to cultivate and process, fewer pesticides and is less damaging to soil as it grows. The resulting fabric is soft and silky and does not stiffen up the way cotton does after many washes. I use a premium weight bamboo fleece which holds more water than the same weight of cotton would. It also increases its absorbency with washing and will be at maximum absorbency after about 8-10 washes. The bamboo velour top is also a premium weight fabric, and is hand-dyed by me. It is rinsed well using Synthrapol detergent to ensure least chance of dye run. (As with all hand-dyed items though, they should be washed separately or with similar colours until you are sure it won't run!

Pads are priced according to length and absorbency and the current price list can be viewed in the custom order listings. "Juliette" style pads with the scalloped flared ends are £2 extra due to the extra time they require to make. Pads with a stenciled design are priced higher, as the design is stenciled by hand and the fabric steamed to remove the colour. A time consuming process but it makes beautiful, unique pads! The additional charge is based on pad length as follows: 6, 7, 8 inch pads + £1.50 9, 10, 11 inch pads + £2.50 12, 13, 14 inch pads + £3.50 15, 16, 17, 18 inch pads + £4.50

Additional policies

CUSTOM ORDERS
I accept custom orders and am delighted to work with you to create one-of-a-kind items. Menstrual pads can be created from custom dyed fabric, in sizes that suit you. Please allow 2-3 weeks for fabric dyeing and pad sewing! Further information on custom pads is available in the custom pad listing. If you have any questions please do get in touch :)

FABRIC
Only brand-new fabrics are used for the menstrual pads. I source quality fabrics and prefer natural/breathable fibres. (and other items unless specified, for example, upcycled armwarmers or wool longies!)

I also dye organic bamboo velour fabric to order. Perfect for making your own CSPs, cloth nappies, wipes, breast pads, blankets, cushions and lots more!

ECO POLICY
As a shop owner who sells products that reduce environmental impact, I aim to keep my processes as eco-friendly as possible. Most of my items are currently sent out in organza bags that can be reused by customers. Others may be gift-wrapped - using last year's Christmas paper, and ribbon or yarn from my stash! Samples of unpaper products will be sent in recycled packaging. Most items will be sent in a new polymailer, as I feel this is the best way of keeping shipping costs down for customers, and for protecting items from the UK's climate. I am always on the lookout for ways of improving my packaging and Eco policies, and please do get in contact if you have any special requests about packaging.

I am registered for tax with HMRC, and insured as a craftsperson, so you can have confidence in my work.


I also have a wee FB page, feel free to like and I'll have random posts about menstrual pads, fabric dyeing, photos of fudgy brownies, competitions and such :)
