Anyone know where I can get 100% Bamboo Double Loop Terry inserts!!

I am having trouble finding a bamboo double loop terry without polyester...maybe it needs it to help it not fall apart?

Also, does it really matter whether the fabric is 100% bamboo double terry or the 70% Bamboo/28% Organic Cotton/2% Polyester double loop terry? Does anyone have experience with both and prefer one? If so why?! The bamboo/cotton/polyester blend inserts are easier to find. Does the polyester make it get stinkier? Or does 2% not matter?
Thanks!

Green line makes a 70/30 bamboo terry insert. Love them. Trim, absorbent and wash and dry very easily.

The polyester is there for stability, and does not affect the performance at all.

Thanks!! Do you know if it is double loop terry? Also I am really looking for a 2 or 3 layer double loop terry soaker that is serged together that I don't have to fold. I would like it to be the size of the BG 4.0 microfiber inserts to stuff in my pockets.

Any suggestions?

I may just have to go with the stuff with polyester it seems like it still works great for a lot of ppl and doesn't affect anything as last post said (thanks)!!

Could I just get a French terry soaker made (doesnt have poly like double terry its 70%bamboo/30%organic cotton) instead of double terry soaker made and just use more layers? Would it still be as absorbant and soft and squishy!???!!!

French terry is not as soft and squishy as DLT, but it does make a great insert.

You could buy the bamboo yardage and make them if you're handy. Kids in the Garden has awesome service and it's a mom run out of the house operation.
The poly is there for stability to hold the weave together.

Yeah I may do that I can sew I just don't have a serger. I have found a few ladies on etsy that sell inserts made of the DLT with the little bit of polyester and I bet they would do custom sizing for me

Do 2 or 3 layer DLT inserts take a long time to dry?
Thanks for help ladies

"Bamboo" fabrics are a rayon or viscose that is very very delicate. The cotton, hemp, or polyester are necessary to hold up under diaper conditions.
