Only 100% natural fibre fabrics are used for the pad tops and absorbency layering, and breathable polartec fleece is used for the leak resistant layering, the same fleece used in high end sportswear, made from . Initial source manmade fibres such as Zorb or PUL are not used in New Moon Pads. With a true commitment to saving our environment, only the best quality fabrics are used to ensure longer than normal pad life and durability.
Absorbent Fabrics ~ 100% Cotton
Organic Cotton = Cool and smooth.
Cotton = Cool and smooth.
Cotton Fleece = Warm and fluffy.
Flannel = Warm and fluffy.
Flannel has a bit of a faster uptake on moisture contact than regular cotton but either choice for pad tops yield the same overall absorbency capabilities.
Leak Resistant Fabric
Polartec Barrier Fleece = Soft and fluffy.
Fleece colours are chosen randomly to best complement your pad print choice. Current colours available are grey, plum, or burgundy.
Pads are all-in-ones, nothing to stuff, add, or piece together, and are offered in both winged and wingless styles. Topped in your choice of high thread count soft cotton or cotton flannel, pads have double brushed flannel centre core layering and are backed by Polartec barrier fleece for leak-proofing (excluding panty liners) and have quilted channel stitching to direct the flow of moisture to the centre of the pad. Channel stitching only goes through the absorbent layers and not the fleece backing to prevent wicking. Much time and effort is taken in selecting quality print cottons and cotton flannels for an appealing look as well as quality functionality. The double brushed flannel (used in the core of the pads) is specifically designed for manufacturing high absorbency products. Elemental and thong panty liners are made of all cotton flannel in your choice of flannel or cotton tops. All-in-all New Moon Pads are very trim yet VERY absorbent.
Wing tabs are much trimmer than full body wings to help keep the pad in place without pulling it out of shape and are made from 100% cotton flannel, cotton fleece, or cotton with white resin KAM snaps. Wing colours/prints are chosen randomly to best complement your pad print choice.

NOT ALL PADS ARE CREATED EQUAL. NAVIGATING THE MINEFIELD OF CHOICES
When shopping around for cloth menstrual pads be sure to check sizing dimensions, absorbency capabilities, whether or not they have a leakproof layer and what material is used (i.e. PUL or fleece), and design benefits (i.e. trim absorbency vs bulky absorbency). Different pad makers have different sizing scales. One pad maker’s large may be the equivalent of another pad maker’s small so you need to look at the actual dimensions. One thing to keep in mind, longer pads tend to feel more comfortable while offering better coverage. Beware of exceptionally short pads unless you are a petite body style.
HAND CRAFTED AND CUSTOM MADE
Each pad is hand crafted and custom made in house in Comox, BC, Canada using fabrics sourced from Canada and the US.
