Living in the Lap of Luxury with Funky Fluff LUX!
What’s that?! Funky Fluff found a way to improve on their 2.0 version?! Apparently they did and it is a DREAM!
You already know that I LOVED the versatility of Funky Fluff 2.0. So much so that I bought more bamboo 2.0 packs for Leah after my initial review was published! You are also aware of my never ending love affair with all things natural fibers; There has never been a better marriage of the two!
What stayed the same?
The shell’s overall shape and fit are the same. It still has 4 rise snap positions to fit a wide range of babies, 2 rows of wing snaps to avoid wing droop and cross over snaps for tiny waists. Internal snaps at the front and back of the pocket allow inserts to be snapped in place so you can use the system as an all-in-one or all-in-two style diaper. There are also still pocket opening at the front and back for easier access to snaps and inserts.
So, what’s new?
For starters, the Funky Fluff LUX shell is 1cm wider in the center. This makes it MUCH easier to stuff the pocket. I did not have such a problem with my bamboo 2.0 shells, but the stay-dry definitely did not stretch enough to stuff both inserts easily. Second, the back snaps are now lined with PUL instead of suede cloth to prevent wicking around the snaps. Again, a problem I did not have with bamboo 2.0 but I did eventually experience with the stay-dry 2.0 shell. Third, the elastics have been upgraded for additional durability. SCORE!
In addition to improvements with the Funky Fluff shell…and this is my favorite part……the LUX line offers a new breed of inserts! The biggest change being the retirement of microfiber all together. There is still a stay-dry shell available, just not the microfiber inserts. The new inserts are surely LUXURIOUS! They have been redesigned to a contour shape for better coverage and absorbency. They also snap together AND into the diaper shell. The previous versions did not snap together. They come in pairs: one large and one small soaker per set. The small soaker has 5 layers of super soft bamboo terry and the large boasts 6 layers! That’s 11 thirsty layers of bamboo terry. (12 Layers if you are using the bamboo shell!) That is a lot of absorbency! The Lux shell and bamboo inserts are nighttime worthy even with my 2yearold!
But, wait! It gets better! WHAT?!
Funky Fluff has introduced new premium soakers: Funky Fluff DeLux! These are made with 2 layers each of Hemp and bamboo fleece. Bamboo on top absorbs quicker while hemp on the bottom holds onto more moisture. The layers are sewn together down the middle, which makes it easier to fan out for faster drying time. Because of the improvements to the Lux inserts, I have not experienced any “baconing” or “waving” of my inserts as I did with the 2.0 versions. This is another nice plus! Drying time is my only issue when using bamboo and hemp fibers. The new Funky Fluff inserts do need a little more time to dry. Longer than the older Funky Fluff inserts. If I run my diapers in the dryer, I remove the damp inserts and hang them to finish drying. Since this is usually at night and they are dry in the morning, it’s not a big deal to me. It’s worth it to have the extra soft, extra absorbent, great fitting diaper!
In addition to the design improvements and materials upgrade, Funky Fluff is introducing Hemp/Cotton boosters for when you need a little extra boost of absorbency! There are also 2 brand new pints with their Lux line of products! Maritime and Chantilly. Both are fun and gorgeous!
Funky Fluff had a marvelous diaper with their 2.0 version and they have certainly knocked it out of the park with Funky Fluff Lux! With the Bamboo System, which includes 2 bamboo inserts, priced at $24.95 this is a steal! Get some, your baby’s bum will thank you!
