In my WNSS I use a Double Greenkids Hemp on the bottom, then a Little Lamb Bamboo and on the top (nearest to baby's bottom) a piece of Zorb - this seems to do the trick for us.

It holds a lot more than anything else, but is very slow to absorb, which is why I have it at the bottom, bamboo is faster to absorb and Zorb faster still, so the liquid can work it's way through each layer to the next.

You could look in the classifieds, or even post a wanted?

I've also no idea about Issys, never tried them.

I have lots of Hemp Babies hemp inserts, I fold them up in various ways dep on what Im stuffing. PDs are always a brill bamboo one to have in the stash IMO.
I make all my own boosters (bamboo, hemp and zorb) so not sure about those, I know Little Gumnut make zorb boosters though and lots of people seem to use LL bamboo boosters.
The combo of hemp/bamboo then zorb is a good one ;)

I just bought a nappy cut of Zorb from Lush Tush and chopped it up, made about 10-15 so loads & worked out very cheap, it doesn't fray so you don't need to be able to hem/sew or anything.

Packs of 10 Little Lamb Bamboo Sz2 boosters on ebay direct from LL for £12, I find them great, and as I've said GreenKids for Hemp.

I avoid anything with Micro Fibre as once they are wetting more heavily the wee jut squishes back out & causes wicking/leaking.
