Microfibre is not usually used as the material for a booster.
Super absorbent hemp is available in many different styles. The best selling hemp booster is the Bum Booster.
Where to put booster pads for nappies?

What is the difference between a cloth nappy inserts and a booster?
The terms insert and booster are fairly interchangeable however their purposes are slightly different. Inserts are what comes with a nappy when purchased and are part of the nappy design and supposed to be part of the nappy or are the absorbent part of the nappy. Booster is additional and added as extra, not essential.
