I haven't seen the WN cow one but I looooove the cow print Blueberrys, I think they're really smart, gutted they don't last on your LO now.

A WN cow print velboa was Iris' very first cloth nappy. She was six days old. Where's my baby gone?!

I don't think I'll be much help, really. I had that fabric in such a tiny nappy, that it can't really compare. I didn't find it ever wicked or anything, though. The velboa doesn't wear as well as minky though - the black on the cow print started to develop white bobbles with repeated washing - so it can look tired relatively quickly.

What is velboa anyway, is it fleecy?

I don't really know, I've never seen it, I think it's similar to minkee but not as lush!

It's not like minkee. It has a fuzzier feel to the fabric - almost more like an animal skin.
