Our products don’t contain PFOS, PFOA, lead, dioxins, heavy metals, BPA, or any kind of phthalates, including DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP, and DnOP.
This fabric contains Ready-AbZORB, a technology we pioneered. It eliminates the need to pre-wash and dry to activate the super absorbency. It also reduces shrinkage by 60% to 80%, giving you more fabric for your dime.
It takes less than two seconds for this fabric to absorb 10 times its weight. It also soaks up to 20 times faster than bamboo, cotton, or hemp knits.
This fabric is durable and reversible. The thirsty Zorb 3D fibers live in between the Stay Dry layers, which are made of polyester and contain super wicking properties.
The dimple pattern is unique, 3D, and engineered for retention, hold, moisture distribution, and reduced compression.
You can replace 6 layers of flannel, 4 layers of french terry, and 3 layers of organic fleece with just two layers of Zorb. You can more comfortably dress to stay dry and warm.
The Zorb fabric knitting construction is free from super absorbent polymers. Because chemicals aren’t used in Zorb products, their super absorbency lasts as long as the fabric does.
Zorb products are extremely absorbent, whether you spill water, clean up after your baby, or sweat while you run. However much absorbency you need, Zorb can provide it.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
Use It On Its Own
While interlining is an option, you don’t need to, which can cut down on costs and increase the product’s performance while being environmentally friendly. This fabric requires less prep work and doesn’t easily shrink, saving you time and money. Without being super heavy, this fabric is still comfortable while keeping things dry.
Create More Quickly
Not only does our Stay Dry Dimple LITE fabric not require interlining, but it doesn’t need to be pre-washed, either. You can create what you need as soon as you get the fabric, and then immediately use it.
A Multitude of Purposes
Our fabric is your ideal option for a light material that absorbs sweat without weighing you down.
This fabric is perfect for single-layer pre-folds, soakers, changing pads, fitted diapers, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, play mats, medical products, menstrual products, and incontinence products.
It can be used for so many different purposes. No matter what your product is, Zorb can help you create it.

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.
UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

Important Note about Absorbency in 3D & 4D Zorb fabrics:
These fabrics are designed to be absorbent and made without the use of any chemicals during manufacturing. Our Ready-AbZorb process helps eliminate the need for pre-washing for absorption and also reduces the shrinkage. However the fabrics are made in large batch sizes on industrial machines and sometimes the fabric may not absorb as desired from when you receive it, or sometimes after cutting and sewing. In such cases, we recommend running the fabric through a hot wash and medium dry cycle; this will help remove any handling residues and activate the super absorbent fibers that might have been affected by handling.
