See this on a baby and find the how-to fold flats video link.
The organic version is tan in color and still contains the natural cotton oils which must be washed off before full absorbency is reached. Doing these initial wash cycles is called prepping. The white version already has the natural cotton oils removed so fewer initial prep cycles are needed.
All measurements are approximate.
100% cotton birdseye diapers. "One-Size" means one-size can fit from birth to potty learning, or is a one-size fits all size.
We also have a special larger size called size Large. Size large shrinks to about 30x30 inches after washing and are 33x35 inches before washing.
Our one-size isn't very small. In fact, our "one-size" is larger than some other brands size large. Our size Large is great if you happen to like doing the origami fold on an older baby but the one-size are good for most other folds on any baby of any age. I think the size large is too much diaper for a newborn and it can be unwieldy to fold. Most will be happy with the "one-size" size from birth to potty learning.
Use size Half as doublers in your flats: You can add the Size Half birdseye to another diaper when you need more absorbency but don't want the bulk of double-diapering. They also are the perfect dishcloths.
Now, birdseye is a variable fabric and they will never be perfect squares consistently with any brand due to the nature of the fabric, but these are usually reasonably square which does help make folding easier and we strive to make them as square as we possibly can. While these are not expensive at all, they truly are better than other brands for both fabric quality and squareness. I hope you love them as much as I do. They are very nice, high quality cotton birdseye weave.
Easy-washing, real 100% cotton. Made in Pakistan. Flats don't get diaper stink. You don't need to strip your diapers when you use flats because they really do wash up nicely and easily.
Please wash several times before first use to remove the natural cotton oils. Link to more washing information.

We used these for my daughter 10 years ago and we loved them as diapers. They were great for our baby's chunky legs. I held on to them for rags around the house. I just made a new order to use them as dish towels, they are so absorbent and just all around my favorite.
I added a pack of these to my prefold order just to try, thinking I'd give up and use them as hand towels. But I loved flats so much more that I ordered enough to use for every change. These are easy to clean, soft, and the trimmest option out of my entire stash by far. When I have my next baby, I'll definitely go with these exclusively as soon as they're out of nb size prefolds!!
Soon-to-be-grandma here, acquiring cotton diapers for my daughter’s baby. The Cloth-eez birds eye flats are lightweight but tightly woven cotton, just the kind of natural fiber that is nice to have next to baby’s skin. Prepping these diapers through four wash/dryer cycles, it’s amazing how much more quickly the flats dry compared to prefolds. My daughter & son-in-law will be in humid Nagano, Japan during the winter, with dryers not always available, so the flats are a wise choice, along with some of the lovely Cloth-eez cotton inserts for extra coverage. Also, no one mentions this much, but flats are easy on your washing machine compared to bulkier, layered diapers. Another consideration is that flats with doublers make for a lower profile, with the thickest cloth layers closest to baby’s bottom where they are needed, since most baby clothes these days seem to be designed for disposables. GMD has excellent videos about the various folds for flat diapers (origami & Pickman are my favorites so far),which can be adapted to your baby as they grow.
