95%& Bamboo 5% Lycra

Bamboo Lycra is similar to cotton lycra, except it is flowier and definitely breezier! It makes BEAUTIFUL flowy tops and skirts, and you won't feel hot and sweaty in this base!
Bamboo Lycra won't cling to you, so if you are avoiding knits that are clingy and looking for a smoother drape, give Bamboo Lycra a try!
Must wash with care as it can stretch out of shape easily. Definitely not for bands and cuffs!

150cm wide
94% Polyester 6% Spandex

DBP can be a bit of a "warmer" fabric, but that is totally dependant on how you wear it. If you were to make a flowy top or dress, it would be perfect for summer, or layer it up in the winter, or make it into a long sleeved top or cardy!

PUL: $12.50/ half meter ($25.00/meter)

180gsm
150cm wide
100% Polyester


PUL is predominantly used as the waterproofing/resistant layer in cloth nappies, cloth pads, nursing pads, training/incontinence/period undies, raincoats, swim bags, lunch bags etc.

Please note, whilst PUL can be laundered on 90°C washes and tumble dried, we do NOT recommend that you do so. In our extensive experience with PUL from many other brands and businesses, we feel it is common sense that tumble drying PUL to "test" the laminate, in fact exposes the laminated side to the hot dryer drum, and will therefore melt it. If you reach out to us to let us know our PUL delaminated in the dryer, we will not compensate you.

You should be washing your PUL (nappies, pads etc) on 2 x 40°C or 60°C washes for a pre-wash and main wash cycle, with the recommended laundry detergent. (See Clean Cloth Nappy Down Under for more details)

95% Polyester 5% Spandex

Ever wondered what it would feel like if Minky and DBP were crossed? The answer is: Squish! The possibilities are endless with this one!
Yes, you could use it for sewing warm garments, but how about making bed or sofa throws, baby blankets, cuddle toys or pillows? You could even make some warm infinity scarves or beanies!
What would you use it for?

Swim SPF 50+$14.00/ half meter ($28.00/meter)

220gsm 
150cm wide
88% Polyester 12% Spandex

Chlorine resistant

Can be used for workout wear, skater skirts/dresses, leggings and of course, swimwear! It is not always necessary to line when used in swimwear, but if transparency will be a factor when wet eg, fitted swimmers, I would advise using lining! Not necessary for things like rash shirts or fashion swimwear/activewear or looser fitting swimmers.
Another great use is compression wear.
The list goes on! Make sure you account for the tighter fit if using a pattern drafted for cotton lycra and remember to size up.
