A couple of years ago for the Flats and Handwashing Challenge, I splurged on new birdseye cotton flats. I have a preference for birdseye cotton for hand washing because I like how well it performs in a hand wash as well as it’s dry time.
I ordered the 6 pack of Osococozy Flats because I thought they were the same as my others, turns out that today when I pulled up my bill they are actually a bamboo cotton blend and totally different. These are 70% Bamboo and 30% certified organic cotton. They originally were 32×35 inches and now they measure smaller beautiful square that I just love for padfolding on my kids.
A 6 pack in Canada is $27.95, or $4.66 each. This makes them more expensive than their cotton counterparts by a dollar. In the United States a 6 pack costs $20, working out to $3.33 each or double the organic cotton.
These are made in Pakistan.
The Absorbency Results
My absorbency tests are not perfect and only measure full saturation. At the end of this video I do show more performance experiments to help you understand the textile works. These numbers are my own experience and not indicative of what yours might be. Varations are normal and to be expected based on numerous factors. Please take these numbers not as an indication of the products worht, but just on the premise of how it stacks up to others.
Don’t underestimate the simplicity of textiles – These flats come in at 13.6, 13.6, and 13.2 ounces for an average absorption fo 13.5 ounces.
If you’re stateside that means 25 cents per ounce —- if you’re in Canada that’s 35 cents per ounce.
Simple materials can perform amazing and have great results if you give them a chance.
