any stores sell bamboo fleece??

Hello,
Have any of you found a brick-and-mortar store that sells bamboo fleece? If not, where do you shop online for fabric? I am scared of the price of shipping!
Thank you,
Heather

I think that the diapersuppliescoopcanada yahoo group is just about to close a coop for bamboo velour and fleece. Shipping is a killer. You really need to order quite a bit to make it worth while.

I definitely don't have a B&M store here. Some of the bigger cities like Toronto or Vancouver may have it available in the textile districts? Definitely not in my small town though.

I can get this locally from a supplier. I have to buy a minimum of 50-60 yards, if there is interest, I would be happy to run a coop of sorts. There is no shipping costs to me and it is $8.50/meter. It would just be shipping to you from Surrey, BC.
I also can get Bamboo Velour.
Let me know if there is any interest.

Thanks for choosing cloth,

I live on Vancouver Island, and would love to get some bamboo fleece (or velour, not sure yet - what would work better as a prefold?).

I think fleece would be better for prefolds. How much are you thinking? I would need interest in 30-40 metres(among a bunch of people is fine) beofore I could do it. Email me at info@bouncingbabies.ca if you are interested and please include quantitites.
Thanks, Catherine

I also have access to bamboo velour and fleece. I can have full rolls (about 45yds for fleece and 50yds for velour) drop shipped directly to you.
I also have a coop group on yahoo where you can order smaller yardage.
