Yes. Any knit fabric is prone to holes over time, and bamboo, hemp, and organic cotton like flip inserts are all knit.

Holes can happen to any fabric, but knits are more prone than woven. Prefolds are usually made from particularly durable weaves, like twill weave, for longevity.

My hemp are secondhand and just starting to get 'holes' at the side (similar to a hole in a sweatshirt cuff, kwim?). I use them as doublers in my night diapers so they get heavy use (only have 3).

Not like bamboo that wears thin. Hemp is pretty tough.
