Where to buy bamboo and stay dry fabrics??

I'm totally a noob at anything related to sewing. I want to make my own cloth wipes, diaper inserts, mama cloth and eventually diapers. I bought a serger and have been practicing. But now I need fabric. I want to start with cloth inserts for my diapers. Where do you buy your fabric?? What is a "good" price for bamboo and stay dry fabrics like suedecloth? Thanks!!

I find great deals on craft FSOT! Also, I believe suede cloth can be bought locally at JoAnns, download the app, they have tons of 50% off coupons.

I get most of my stuff from Natures Fabric. I would choose micro fleece over suede cloth, it always causing problems for me at some point, I find liquid just doesn't pass through fast enough for my super soakers.

Thanks! Sadly the only local fabric store is Hancock. I have a Joann's and Michaels about 30 minutes away if I have to run there though.

I like the microfleece at Joann's. Otherwise I stick to fsot most of the time.

They should take JoAnn coupons, too! I'm don't know how good Hancocks coupons are but if they are lacking they should accept competitors coupons as well.

JoAnn also takes competitor coupons as well, if you ever find yourself near one. I always pull up the Hobby Lobby and Michael's online coupon on my phone when I'm at JoAnn's to get a little extra savings.
Currently the majority of my stash is homemade with Babyville PUL and the Alova Suedecloth, both from Joann's. I'm happy with those materials, but I have also been on the hunt for some bamboo I can use to add a little extra absorbency to the diapers I bought. Can anyone suggest brands for bamboo? Or anything that makes a good absorbent layer?
