Did you get a fabric that has the same bamboo/cotton/spandex composition as sweet iris? I'd be interested to see how it performs, if you did

Sweet iris is 75% bamboo 20% cotton and 5% spandex

The natures fabric I got is 70% bamboo 25% cotton and 5% spandex

So the same amount of stretch but a bit more cotton and less bamboo than sweet iris.

Thanks! Did you find that fabric trim and absorbent?

Anybody have a preemie prefold and a kissaluvs insert/doubler to test? There's a mama wondering about the absorbency of both.
