As far as I know microfiber and microterry are the same thing. I'm not expert on the stuff though. Staydry is when it is topped with a layer of microfleece or suedecloth. You aren't supposed to use microfiber directly against skin, because it can be drying. So they use stay dry for mircofiber so it can be used as a doubler. HTH

Ok. Then what's the difference between microfleece and suedecloth? And is cotton or hemp (natural fibers) ever topped with stay dry?

Microfleece pills up after washing and can be sort of rough, suedecloth doesn't do that. Natural fibers like cotton and hemp are not stay dry. I have some stay dry diapers and some not, and the ones that are not never seem to bother him. I prefer natural fibers over stay dry, it seems to wash cleaner and stay softer. But everyone has a different preference

Oh, I just re-read and got what you meant Natural fibers can be topped with a stay dry fiber, but its hard to find IMO. I know knickernappies make hemp stay dry doublers. I actual have one I never use and am trying to sell. I've really only used it a few times if you're interested. I bought it for $5 or so I think..selling it for $3 if interested
