We sell more of these nappies than anything else - and for good reason.
They are the thirstiest nappies we make and they have excellent containment - basically it's what all nappies aspire to.
LittleLamb bamboo nappies have been through many versions since first launched over ten years ago and we have tweeked the fit time and time again until we believe it is now the perfect nappy.
Oeko-tex certified pure bamboo yarn is knitted onto a foundation which completely eliminates shape-loss and shrinkage and promotes longevity - with careful laundering they can last two or three babies. The special way we knit the yarn means that you can't even pull a thread - the more you pull the tighter it locks into place, a must when you have Velcro on the garment.
Moreover, the nappy is cut from a single piece of fabric which is folded over on itself to create a double-layer, highly-absorbant nappy with microfleece soaker inside. Having microfleece rather than a bamboo inner-core drastically reduces the drying time as it 'spins out' water almost completely in the washer and ultimately saves you time and money.
The elastic - usually the achilles heal in a nappy - is the best quality available and should even outlast the fabric so long as you follow the care instructions.
Wayback, our original nappy had the external bamboo booster attached to all the three sizes but feedback suggested that on a new born it made the nappies a bit too bulky and wasn't needed as they just don't wee in vast quantities. We now supply the size 1 nappies with the bamboo booster placed inside rather than sewn-in.

How do they work? The inside of the wrap is covered with a laminate skin bonded in place. The skin looks like a honeycomb under a microscope with the spaces big enough to allow the smaller air molecules to pass through but small enough to stop the larger fluid molecules. Warm air can escape, reducing the temperature inside, whilst keeping the wetness inside.
Littlelamb wraps also have gently elasticated waist and thighs, as do the nappies, so there are two barriers to stop escapees. It's unheard of on a two-part nappy system to have those poo-up-to-the-neck explosions!
