Generally bamboo or a combination of bamboo and hemp seem to be the most popular, particularly bamboo velour. It is cheaper to order fabric from abroad than the UK and I think some WAHMs import from China. I have no idea exactly what you'll need or the best place to buy fabric wholesale from but I'm sure someone will be along shortly with more knowledge on the subject than me.

Greenbeans in NZ used to be great, but I think they put their prices up!
You'll find most people like bamboo and hemp as they are just super absorbent, and slim, but it's really down to the child, working out what works for them!
