Awww! Thanks mamas! I am actually putting my custom orders on hold right now. I am trying to get a hyena cart set up over the next couple of weeks. But hopefully it will be up soon and I will have more bamboo dipes for folks over there.

It depends on what the inner is. Bamboo itself isn't super absorbant (esp. not compared to hemp or something like that). It's not especially stay-dry, either. The great thing about bamboo (aside from it being such a quickly renewable resource) is it's luxurious feel. Bamboo velour feels like heaven--a silky version of cotton velour. It maintains its silky sheen throughout.

I'm in the process of adding WAHMarama OBV prefolds to my Peek-a-Booties which will be made of an outer layer of bamboo/cotton french terry, the soaker is bamboo/cotton fleece, and the inner is bamboo/organic cotton velour. The B/CF is what would make it more absorbant than a regular PF--and the B/CFT outer makes it Snappi-able!
I'm stocking 2 testers on Thursday, if you'd like to give one a try at a discounted price They'll prob be listed by Tues
