It's been a while since i have been in here, so i'm a bit out of the loop with everything but I was just wondering if anyone has heard of Zorb (an absorbent nappy fabric)?
There is some up for sale on ebay that i have been looking at buying. Has anyone heard of it or used it before, if so what have been your thoughts?

I've never heard of it - sounds similar to microfibre. I'd like to see what the comparison is against microfibre and bamboo fleece though, as the examples they give aren't really MCN fabrics. It's a bit exxie too to not have that info.

I had  look at it on Ebay and it looks ok, maybe get one cut and try it, they think its more absorbant than bamboo and sherpa and flannel etc etc...

Sounds ok to me....

Wonder what the drying time is like?  The more absorbency, the longer the dry time I guess. shrug.gif
