This is a close up of bamboo velour. It has a short pile and is right in between Silkee and Minkee as fas as fluffiness goes. It is made from natural fibers.


This is a close up of ProCool Sport Jersey.


This is a close up of Domino Pads Sport. We are offering this version of Domino Pads for people who want a cool top without any 'fluff' on top. Because it is fluff-free it is more likely than the other two to eventually show some pilling.


 

*Minkee fabric is mass produced but has variations in the appearance of the material

** In regards to Domino Pads dyes:

We initially investigated the option to use natural dyes but decided against them because of the mordant necessary to make the natural dyes last.

I use synthetic Procion dyes which require only Soda Ash as the fixative.

Some additional info on natural dyes can be found here: http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/naturaldyes.shtml.

All of our pads are of course still available in natural/un-dyed - no synthetic dyes AND no mordant!
