Therefore, please click on the option you are interested in to see the actual price. This is just how it all works.

Detailed Description of our Chartwell Liners

Our Chartwell 5ft Hutch Fleece Liners were the original cage liners to use the material Zorb™ (more info below) in every liner we make. Several others have gone on to copy us by using it. As Oscar Wilde said "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness". So, thank you! We're flattered.

We used our experience and many many hours of trial and error to establish that the liners should be made using high quality anti-pil polar fleece on the top and bottom of the liners with a layer of Zorb™ Silvadur® sewn in-between the fleece layers. The fleece is anti-pil meaning that it won't bobble and become less effective over time. In fact the fleece wicks liquid awar better after multiple washes  Due to the Zorb™ Silvadur® being such an effective material a "waterproof" layer, as often seen in cheaper or lower quality liners, is not needed. All of the liners are hand made in the UK by experienced and skilled seamstresses.

Key Features of Our Liners & Absorbent Accessories

A quick summary of why our liners and absorbent accessories are the best value for money in the UK.

  • Zorb™ Silvadur™ Antimicrobial absorbent core to lock away any moisture. Not polyester wadding which isn't absorbent!
  • Silvadur™ is proven to be safe against the skin so is 100% safe for your piggies/pets especially when sewn inside a cage liner.
  • Silvadur™ has intelligent odour control reducing noticeable odour by over 99%
  • High quality Anti-pil fleece to wick away moisture from the animals into the core.
  • No need for a "waterproof layer". These layers are present in lower quality liners with cores that do not absorb properly.
  • Lightweight and thinner than alternatives but still soft underfoot. Thickness does not denote quality with cage liners.
  • Quick drying especially when compared to towelling and wadding based liners.
  • Made to measure for the chosen size of cage.
  • Handmade at home in the UK by a team of slightly bonkers but skilled seamstresses.
  • Can be machine washed and tumble dried on a low heat. One of the few on the market that can be tumble dried.

Why we use Zorb® Silvadur™

So why do we use Zorb™ Silvadur® in our absorbent products (excluding Memory Foam Mats)? Simple really, its amazing but for a bit more detail then carry on reading below.

It is designed to be used in reusable nappies, is thin, lightweight and highly absorbent. Nothing on the market is more effective or comparable. We were one of the first UK bulk importers of Zorb™ and now Zorb™ Silvadur®, which we used in all of our cage liners.

Zorb™ Silvadur® is 20 times faster at locking away liquid than any other material including cotton, bamboo and microfibre which are used in other cage liners. It also absorbs 10 times it's weight in liquid in half a second. In addition it is thin (thick liners don't necessarily mean quality), lightweight, quick drying and can be tumble dried on a low setting.

The Silvadur® Antimicrobial properties inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and algae on the fabric thus controlling bad odours, improving overall hygiene and providing continuous freshness protection. We are the first in the UK to use this as standard within all of our liners, setting the bar for quality higher still and showing how innovative we are.

More information about Zorb™ Silvadur® can be found In Our Blog Post.

Washing Instructions

Washing and Drying

  • Give your liner an initial wash before using. This helps aid the wicking of the fleece.
  • Sweep/vacuum the loose hay and droppings daily.
  • Your liner will probably need washing once or twice a week depending on how messy your little ones are.
  • If you have 3 or more animals then washing may need to be done more regularly.
  • If you use pee pads or similar then this can extend the time between washing.
  • Make sure you shake/brush the loose materials off your liner before washing.
  • If available, place your liner inside a laundry bag.
  • Machine wash your liner on a cool wash, 30/40C using a washing detergent that DOES NOT contain fabric softener. A little white wine vinegar can help eliminate odours.
  • We always RECOMMEND line/air drying liners. Howeve our Zorb based liners, unlike others, can be tumble dried if necessary. Please ensure it is on a LOW HEAT SETTING. The wadding liners can ONLY be line dried. Due to the materials we use they will dry quickly.

Extra Help

  • Do Not use fabric softener when washing your liners. This is because it leaves a residue on the fleece fibres stopping them from wicking moisture away as effectively
  • As mentioned above, we recommend giving your liner an initial wash though this is not essential. You will find the more the liner is washed the more effective the fleece becomes at wicking away any moisture. This is normal behaviour for the material and is a reason why it is so good to use in the cage.
  • When washing, if you give the liner a second spin/rinse you will find that it dries a lot quicker.
  • Make sure you don't use too much detergent as this will clog the fibres and stop the liner working as effectively. This will lead to bad odours.

Great quality and really absorbant

I've been so pleased with my hutch liner. I've previously made our liners myself but I'm so glad to let someone else do it as the quality is fantastic and the absorbency is so much better than anything I've done previously. The guinea pigs love it and I've found I've been able to leave washing longer. Thank you ☺️
