What's your favorite absorbent Fabric for AI2 Soakers, Pocket Inserts, Fitted Soakers

What type of absorbent fabrics do you prefer in soakers/inserts/trifolds etc? Which is your favorite? Which is your least favorite? And why?
Edited to add: Feel free to pick more than one choice if you like several things.
I'm talking about quick dry AI2's, Fitteds, and Pockets (not internal soakers).

Thanks!

I like hemp french terry and organic fleece the best for soakers/inserts, and I prefer bamboo velour topped, but I also like microfleece topped....
And I also like microfiber.

I think I would like to try a microfiber/hemp combo soon.

I've tried hemp/french terry and I didn't like it (too heavy, not soft) I've also tried microfiber and it didn't hold very much. I am a big fan of hemp/fleece and that's what all of our diapers are (I use pockets (FB, GAD) with Jamtots inserts and also Berry Plush AI2s) I just bought a couple of Snap-Ez AIOs and I like them.. not sure what they are made with.

I'm so loving the absorbency of bamboo velour right now. It just seems to suck up a lot of moisture, more than hemp.

I like bamboo/org. cotton interlock b/c my hard just ruins the BV in a matter of months. The interlock stays nice and soft, plus it's just as absorbent as the BV. The BV on the other hand gets all clumpy and I get sad...but if I had soft water, OH, how I would love BV everything!..heavenly soft and stretchy like no one's business!
