Cotton fabrics are the most inexpensive material used in pads.
There are many different types of cotton fabrics used in cloth pads.
- Fleece - commonly used as the absorbent core or top layer
- flannel/flannelette - often used in the core and as a top layer
- jersey - a "t-shirt" fabric, often used as a top layer
- "Flat Cotton", or "Quilter's Cotton" - the type of cotton you would use for dressmaking or craft projects - can be used as a top layer or as backing on pads.
