I know you are after bamboo but I've just ordered some of the Thirsties Hemp pre-folds if that's any good to you. They wont be here until next week as they come from the US.

I am getting size 1 and 2 in. If you order one and dont like it, you can always return it.

This is the blurb.


Features:
Patent-pending design is easy to clean, quick to dry, and grows with your baby
Made from buttery soft custom hemp jersey knitted in the USA
25% more absorbent and much more durable than pure cotton
Maintains a trim and comfortable fit
Naturally antimicrobial

Details:
Thirsties is revolutionizing the most widely used cloth diaper in the world. Prefold cloth diapers are popular for their affordability and are the most common diaper supplied by cloth diaper services. Though they don't share all the bells and whistles as other more modern cloth diapers, they have their definite and permanent place in the industry and they have been proven dependable and economical.

However, Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are no ordinary prefold! We've solved many of the cons of prefold diapers in our patent-pending design. Ordinary prefolds are bulky and take a long time to dry. When hung to dry, they can become stiff and crunchy. In addition, most prefolds are 8 layers thick in the middle, which makes it difficult to clean all layers of the diaper thoroughly.

Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefolds are designed for the freer flow of air and washing water-each panel is only 2 layers thick, permitting thorough cleansing with little effort and quick drying times. Our custom hemp jersey is as soft as your favorite t-shirt and it's knitted with love right here in the USA. Hemp is an ideal diaper fabric as it displays antimicrobial properties, is many times more durable, and is more absorbent than cotton. In fact, our hemp jersey is 25% more absorbent than a prefold of the same weight made from cotton alone! This translates into a very trim and effective cloth diaper with a hefty amount of absorbing power.

Just got the dispatch email :wine: I have to say that pre-folds arent usually my thing (and I've never made any bones about that) but these might be the ones that sway me. I've heard so many good things about them I think it would be silly NOT to stock them. Oh, and duo wraps (prints only) in the same shipment :D
