Is there a way to tell microfiber inserts from bamboo or hemp? A while back when I origianally planned on CDing I bought extra inserts and have no idea what they are. I still haven't started CD but plan to soon

yes they look and feel entirely different to me, im not really sure how to explain it though, can you post a picture of the insert? what brand is it?

also often bamboo and hemp have a more natural colour whereas microfiber is white

Ok these are white... I'm assuming they're microfiber. I have some blends coming in the mail soon and some bamboo so I guess I can compare when they come

Also, if they were cheap, they are almost certainly microfiber... bamboo and hemp are pretty expensive unless coming directly from China or something.

Microfibre is sickeningly soft, it usually catches on your fingers. Bamboo is floppy and hemp is stiffer.

This is a great way to describe it! Just touching my microfiber inserts really dries out my fingers and they almost stick to it whereas our bamboo is soft and almost feels more like cotton and the hemp is much more stiff and not as soft as the others.
