Minkee or Bamboo

 

Why Bamboo?

We like bamboo for lots of reasons. We discovered that it is a luxuriously comfortable cloth that is antibacterial, antifungal, hypoallergenic and naturally breathable to keep babies happier for longer and that’s just the way it is naturally. It’s natural structure means it is cool in the summer and warm in winter.We recommend bamboo for parents who are concerned about sensitive or allergy prone skin, or those who simply want an alternative to cotton or man-made fibres.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, mainly because it has an extraordinary capacity to absorb water which helps it to grow faster. The end result is an excellent wicking fibre, which is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton. Bamboo is grown naturally, without industrialised farming. It is sustainable, and thrives without pesticides or fertilizers. It is 100% biodegradable, cuts like grass and re-shoots without being uprooted which means it can grow in places where other crops are simply not viable. All things considered we think it is the perfect nappy material.

 

Why Minkee?

Minkee is a microfibre, which means it is made up of lots of tiny ultra fine fibres which are several times thinner than a human hair. But unlike standard microfibre Minkee is never sticky to the touch. Made using micro polyester it is incredibly luxurious and so so soft and the great thing is it stays that way even after repeated washing.

Both the Minkee and the Jaquard used are fast wicking, so moisture is cleverly and quickly drawn away from delicate behinds. Synthetic fibres aren’t as absorbent as natural ones but then they air dry much much faster. We would recommend Minkee for parents who don’t have much outdoor space for drying, they are a great alternative for parents who are willing to trade a few more changes per day for a little more convenience come laundry time! These nappies can be washed, dried and back on baby within just a few hours!
