I think I was lucky this month to be able to hang my pads outside on the line. Sunshine is great for bleaching out stains and giving the fabrics a good airing.
But Autumn is definitely here and the good drying days are now few and far between. I must admit to feeling slightly less enthusiastic about my pads (and laundry in general) during the dark winter months. I don’t have a tumble dryer and I really dislike having washing strewn all over my house.
My heated airer from Lakeland was a gift from my parents. It’s a pricey purchase but a great investment in the long term, if you can’t afford to have the radiators on full-blast all day.
Anyway, here is my ‘What I wore this month’…
TOP ROW (left to right):
12-inch Beau Bespoke, heavy, hand-dyed Egyptian cotton
13-inch Beau Bespoke, night, hand-dyed bamboo velour
14-inch Beau Bespoke, night, hand-dyed bamboo velour
15-inch Homestead Emporium, Ultimax Slim, hand-dyed jersey
MIDDLE ROW (l-r):
13-inch Little Gumnut (bought via Boobalou), heavy/night, hand-dyed bamboo velour
12.5-inch Yurtcraft, moderate, Hallowe’en cats’ eyes cotton
12-inch Dimplemuff, heavy, Hallowe’en bat shaped cotton
12-inch Mama Kloth, moderate, exploding Tardis cotton
BOTTOM ROW (l-r):
11-inch DDB Secrets, heavy, suedecloth
12-inch Femme Rouge, heavy, cotton
12-inch Lady Days slim, heavy, cotton
11-inch C-Pop Commodities, moderate/heavy, cotton
11-inch Eco Cloth, heavy, jersey
I was definitely in the mood for squishy comforting bamboo velour this month, particularly at night. And I was very excited about using my Hallowe’en themed pads for the first time! A bat pad from Dimplemuff, a cats’ eyes Yurtcraft pad, and my Femme Rouge skull pad all got me in the mood for ‘trick or treating’ and apple bobbing with the kids.
