bamboo vs. bamboo fleece

If I am making my own bamboo flats & wipes (or having them made for me if I get too lazy) should I use a bamboo flat weave cloth like the Imagine flats, or use a bamboo fleece or terry?

Which do you prefer and why?

Bamboo fleece and bamboo terry have stretch in one direction (terry more so than fleece). The only bamboo woven fabric I know of is bamboo flannel. Fleece and terry will be a little bulkier but more absorbent than a flannel flat of the same size. I think any of the 3 options would be a good choice.

You can also buy bamboo jersey that might be really nice and thinner than flannel and fleece and terry!

I made some flats out of bamboo fleece. Pinning them left holes in them and they became pretty holey after a short time.
