Question Bamboo velour? Who loves it?

I have some customs coming and have the option of having them lined in bamboo velour as opposed to regular OV. I know that bamboo is the "hot" diapering fabric right now, but I have no experience with it myself.
Mamas who have used both bamboo and cotton OV, which do you prefer and why? Does it seem like it will hold up? Does it seem inclined to hold stains more or less than regular OV? Would you pay more for this fabric?
I'd love to hear your opinions on this!

MEEEEE! Love the bamboo hands down over regular OV, it holds a TON, no stink, no stains. I have 3 VBSN's that were made with Bamboo Velour and Organic Cotton - couldn't say enough great things about those dipes.

Meeee too! It has stayed much softer then my OV, if it does stain a little, a little bio-kleen or sun takes it right out. It is also very absorbent. I just love it!

Here's another question: does it *look* the same? If I have part of a set of diapers lined in regular OV and part in bamboo, will they visually be too different? Am I nuts or what?

It looks pretty much the same to me. I can take a picture of two side by side tonight if you'd like.

That's sweet of you, navars2. Thanks!
If you get a chance, that would be great, but don't worry if you can't. I appreciate the offer.

I have an Athena's Cloth in bamboo velour and I love it! Visually there is no difference from the OV ones we have, but it does absorb better.

I love bamboo, and I would pay more for it. I've had bamboo velour wipes in rotation for a few months now, and they atill look like they did when I made them. The thing about bamboo velour that I like the most, though, is that you can line dry it, and it is still as soft as if it was in the dryer.

After you feel bamboo velour, OC velour feels like sandpaper. It's just that soft.

Re: Bamboo velour? Who loves it?

My first hyena cart purchase, was kind of accedental (I didn't know that if you put it in your cart you bought it). I think it was fate though because it is my fav VBSN. So much so that I am going to sell my three other VBSN (large) because I ordered two more with bamboo velour. I thought dd would not be dry in it but she wakes up in the morning after 12 or 13 hours fine. plus it does not smell like hemp....but it still smells like pee. What can you do..
