Baby Stuff, Right Down to the Fibers
When you look at your baby’s diapers, do you know about the fibers?
- What fiber is this diaper?
- What properties does this fiber have?
- How do those properties work?
- Where did the fiber come from, and how did it get here?
- What is the environmental impact of this fiber’s life cycle?
We offer you information on the science of common cloth diaper fibers as well as general resources to help you find out more. You will also find in each section children’s learning materials so you can help children understand these fibers and a broader natural balance.

We are fortunate that one half of our family business, our diaper scientist, is trained as a materials scientist. He lent his expertise to write several articles on cloth diaper fibers.

Our diaper scientist is also often the author of answers to questions about diaper and wool cover care, which become Frequently Asked Questions.
