For those of you who prefer minky topped pads: what is it that you like so much about it? Why do you prefer it over other types of fabric?
I typically prefer natural fabrics whenever possible, but I'm curious what all the fuss is about minky: why do so many folks go for it? Does it really wick moisture away from the body into the absorbent core moreso than other more absorbent fabrics like bamboo or hemp?
I'd be interested in it if it really does have a "stay dry" type effect, but I'm still skeptical...
So, minky fans: what do you like about it?
Alternatively, those of you who've tried minky and don't like it: why not?
PS: For context, the majority of my pads now are bamboo velour and hemp topped. I don't care for quilter's cotton as a topic fabric, but I am looking for something that might be a bit more durable than the bamboo velour (I feel like it wears down more quickly than other fabrics...but it could just be that I'm wearing the bamboo velour pads more often.) Sometimes I feel like my hemp (non velour) pads *feel* dryer than my bamboo velour ones, but I haven't tested this theory lately...any other thoughts as to what top fabrics feel the dryest?
