Two layers of unbleached organic 100% cotton birdseye fabric sewn together with a center seam.
Pictures shown after washing. Birdseye fabric has little "birds" woven into the fabric. This is much smoother than terry fabric. Birdseye has a nice amount of "grippiness" to get stuff off with a balance of being smooth enough for softness. Two layers gives you the right level of thickness for absorbency, plus two layers of fabric helps them stay flatter. It gives them enough thickness so that it is easy to grab one. Single layer look-alikes curl up, stick together and are more difficult to handle. Having two layers of fabric makes them much better and easier to use. Paper towels can't compare to two layers of birdseye cotton. Simple, yet so effective.
They can also be used as preemie diapers or layered as newborn cotton diapers.
We added a small seam across the wipe to help them keep their shape, yet cotton shrinkage will vary a bit of course. Like all unbleached cotton, wash several times in a regular size load of laundry, perhaps through 5-8 cycles, on hot with detergent before using. This prep washing is needed to wash off the natural cotton oils present in unbleached cotton. It needs to be washed off before the full absorbency of the cotton is reached.
Made of organic cotton, exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan. In packs of 12 wipes.
A storage idea:
You don't have to roll them but this is pretty. A simple stack on the counter or in a drawer works fine.
New! Also available in white cotton.
Go to Cloth-eez Paper Towel Alternative - white cotton version.
Also available in a group of 4 packs as a Kit.
Comparison of various kinds and sizes of these and the baby wipes version. They are the same fabric (choose white or unbleached organic) and construction (two layers with center seam), but different sizes. Shown new in this picture, before normal cotton shrinkage.

Love These! Super absorbent if you follow the instructions - very easy, just needs several washings.
Very happy with the paper towel alternative. They wash up well (it took about 6-7 washes to get them ready). We bought them to be multipurpose, but so far the family has only used them as washcloths. I actually prefer these to the washcloths we have. They are nice and soft, yet sturdy. I know others have already used them for cleaning and whatnot, but to me they're almost too nice for that. Almost...but they will get used for whatever we need. Thank you for a quality product.
Soft, perfect size, perfect feel to scrub yet gentle. I plan to buy more.
I ended up using them to booster my overnight diapers! They worked great for adding that little bit of extra absorption! Now I’m ordering more because I’m sure they’ll work great as paper towel replacements too.
Absolutely love them! They are super soft and worn wonderful. Highly recommend
