How long would a 2-3 layer bamboo double loop terry insert take to dry?!
 
I am looking at having a wahm make me inserts out of bamboo/organic cotton double loop terry fabric and they will be serged together and be 2-3 layers of fabric thick. Will these take forever to dry? Will they take longer than one cycle?

Also does anyone know what type of bamboo fabric the alvababy 100% bamboo inserts are made of? I am looking at them as an option too for doublers. How long do they take to dry?

Thanks!

Nothing dries as fast as a flat and bamboo is probably the slowest drying. However it won't take more than 1 cycle to dry. HTH

I have sbish flats which are 3 layers of bamboo terry. They are still damp after one dryer cycle, so I just hang them to finish drying. It's about the same as a cotton pf, IIRC. I LOVE double loop terry! It is the squishiest fabric I've found. I recently converted all of ds's inserts to bamboo terry.

My full load of diapers with the alva bamboo inserts take 2 cycles to fully dry. It's probably only 1 1/2 cycles but I always forget when I turn the 2nd cycle on.

I run one cycle for 49 minutes on medium. My flats are all dry but my prefolds and bamboo need another 20 minutes.
