Question Bamboo Fleece vs. Double Loop Terry

Which is more absorbent with the fewest layers? Looking for something extremely absorbent and trim. These are the two options that I am coming across.

I agree with BBB but would add a layer or two of hemp fleece.

ohhh I love the double terry it is so fluffy and nice. 2 layers of that would be comparable to 3 of the fleece, i think

A bit OT -- can someone tell me a bit about sewing double bamboo terry? I like bamboo fleece and I used some to make flats but the edges roll How would double bamboo terry work for flats, would the edges roll? I want another two yards of fabric to make more, and I was sure I wanted more bf even though the edges roll but now I'm not so sure... thanks!

From my personal tests on the fabrics here, bamboo fleece holds more than double loop terry.
