I'm trying to decide between 100% cotton terries, 50/50 cotton/bamboo mix terries and 90% bamboo terries (different brands, e.g. Junior Joy, Little Lambs, White Bots, Muslinz, Nature Babies).
I have read that bamboo is softer than cotton, has antibacterial qualities and is thinner / more absorbent but that cotton is more durable than bamboo, holds its shape better and dries quicker.
I live in a hard water area and I'll be line drying, so I'd be interested in any advice on how the softness compares after a few washes, and whether I should go for a 90% bamboo content terry (rather than 50%) to get that softness advantage.
