    Default Cloth Pads

    I am going to attempt to make some cloth pads. I need to purchase some PUL for them. Where in London can I buy some or is there something else I can use instead?

    You cannot buy PUL locally. You must order online. However, I don't recommend PUL. It makes it difficult for your lady parts to breathe. I recommend a washable wool (which can also be purchased online. lmk if you need a site recommendation).

    When I wear wool I itch. Will this be the case with the material you are talking about?

    This wool is absolutely no itch. Its a very soft lush wool.

    I use it on my breastpads, and pads.

    I get the itchies from wool too, but this is very soft and cuddly. No itchies!

    yes. You should to prewash any materials.

    Serge the raw ends (or do a zigzag) and wash it before sewing.

    Products & Prices - GEM Cloth - Pads, Diapers & Family Reusables her Ruby pads are great, and she shipped USPS I think and I didn't get charged duty and shipping was just a few bucks.

    Probably almost cheaper then making your own, unless you want to make your own. The diamond pads I did not like and I got rid of them.
