This kit by Sophie Hines contains a special trio of absorbent fabrics for the crotches of three pairs of reusable period panties. Choose your own fabric and elastic to pair with the crotch pieces, and use with your favourite undie sewing pattern.
GARMENT SPECIFICS Reusable Period Panties are popular all over the world! They are eco friendly and can be used for menstruation, incontinence, pregnancy, + postpartum related issues. Period Panties are excellent as backup for tampons or menstrual cups, and are perfect for free bleeding, anticipating your period, or spotting throughout your cycle. They are a great option for people with disabilities or difficulties using disposable period products, or for your child’s first periods! Wearing Period Panties eliminates anxiety about staining clothing, furniture, and bedding, and provides peace of mind around getting your period.
INCLUDED IN THE KIT:
- Black Waterproof Backed Organic Cotton Jersey
- Ultra Absorbent Quilted Bamboo Cotton
- Black Moisture Wicking Jersey
MATERIAL SPECIFICS The wicking jersey + bamboo cotton are infused with skinsafe Silvadur™ which inhibits odor + infection-causing bacteria. The waterproof polyurethane backing on the organic cotton jersey and the polyester wicking fabric are entirely food safe + made with no toxic components. They are CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead, phthalates, and flammability.

CARE + USAGE Makes three pairs of period panties which replace 2-3 tampons per wear. Soak and rinse in cold water before washing. Wash cold or medium, lay flat to dry. Do not use fabric softener, which inhibits absorption.
HEALTH NOTE Air flow and breathability is very important for vaginal health. As these Period Panties contain a waterproof material, please keep in mind that wearing for extended amounts of time (more than a few days at a time) can contribute to vaginal discomfort. Please change garments every 12 hours to keep your vagina happy, and remove for a few hours if you begin to experience discomfort.
