poll: which pfs?

Okay, I'm not sure how polls work, but I'm trying this out. I want to get into pfs, and I'm torn between buying 6 cotton premium pfs, 1 or 2 bamboo pfs (because they're $$$!), or some hemp pfs. A little help?

If you could choose just ONE pf that you would use, which would it be. I'm trying to combine cost effectiveness with overall absorbancy and yumminess. I've been hearing about Thirsties colored, GMD short premiums (though I can't find those), and Kindhearted Women's bamboo

All I've used is cotton and I love them. My favorites are the unbleached no-names from softclothbunz.com

Re: poll: which pfs?

I am thinking start with and master the cotton, and if you decide you love them, spend a little $$ and get a few bamboo ones as your "fancy" dipes lol. Here is a recent thread on the GMD shorts, I think they are coming soon....

Hope that helps sister! Or you could save your $$$ and instead of the bamboo get some yummy WOOL . I am enabling you into my din of addiction!!!! LOL.

I'd do cotton- indian or chinese- the price is just so much better and when it comes down to it, bamboo or hemp might be a little more absorbent- but is it going to change how long you leave dd in it? You'll still change it in the same amount of time right?? So go cheaper! I love our cpfs- and awaiting indians from the coop!!!

I've never tried Indian, but I definitely don't like the hemp. I typically use cotton, which I love, but I was looking for something more absorbant for nighttime use. I tried Babykicks Hemparoos. Super thick & super stinky. Yes, they do soak up a lot of moisture, but man did they stink. I say stick with cotton or Indian. I've never even heard of the other kind you mentioned - interesting!

We like our Indians, and just got some hemp, so I don't know about those yet. I do like that they have some stretch to them tho. I would like to try bamboo, but I can't find them anywhere.
