Slightly thinner than the White Two-Sided Wipes because the terry side of the unbleached version is knitted terry instead of woven terry. The nap is not as high and it is lighter and thinner. But it is still terry so it does have a terry grippiness to it. Terry is great for the main job, and the nice, smooth, gentle flannel is great for the final touch-up details.
5x8 inches, approximate measurements before washing, and they will shrink somewhat.
I love this size, the feel, and the practicality of the 2 different sides. May fit in your wipes warmer without folding. I find it easiest to use several wipes per poopy change, grabbing a fresh wipe as needed, rather than folding a larger wipe over and over. These wipes are a less overwhelming size for a young baby's small bottom, yet still fine as baby grows. To me, flannel on one side and terry on the other has the best "feel" for the job. Suggested amount: 4 packs for a young baby, 3 packs for an older baby. 100% unbleached cotton. Wash several times before first use. Made in Pakistan.
2 packs, shown after washing. Because they are two different fabrics sewn together, expect some waviness to the edges because the two fabrics will shrink slightly differently. If you like flatness, choose organic birdseye wipes or velour wipes. It's a small tradeoff for the very handy and practical choice of actually having two different fabrics to use for the varying need at the moment in one wipe.
The white version are thicker than the unbleached on this page.
I finished prepping these (and the piles of other things I just received) two days ago and have had a chance to use them on a couple poopy diaper changes. I have used in the past GMD muslin, birdseye, and white two-sided wipes, and these are my favourite. I like the soft, stretchy terry better than the woven kind, and I'm hoping it won't ravel as easily, too. The terry easily wipes up sticky poop messes, and the flannel takes care of the rest. The terry did shrink more than the flannel, a problem I didn't have with the white version, but that's a small issue in my opinion (and one that is clearly outlined in the description). I love that these wipes don't require folding--with a small house, a slow washing machine, two kids, one in diapers and a third coming, I don't have time to fold wipes. The muslin wipes I've been using also crumple on the edges in my condenser dryer. So I'm expecting these to save me a lot of time! I'll be buying another pack or two. Thanks again, GMD!
Just received these wipes the other day. I ordered 3 packs and I’m super excited to use on our baby that arrives January. I was just slightly disappointed because I washed and prepped the wipes and then I realized one of them already is tearing at the seam.. hoping this work out well though! Because I have read a lot of good reviews on them.

I almost exclusively use these wipes. If you wet them, the “rough” side is great for getting any messy poops off the skin. I use a dry one to pat dry at the end.
I love these! I use cloth wipes on my own sensitive skin and out of the several different brands I have bought and my homemade wipes these are the best! Now that I am pregnant, I have ordered more for when baby comes! Very soft on both sides and absorbent. I like having the 2 different textures on either side. I will probably buy even more soon so I have a nice stockpile for cloth diapering.
I have several of the GMD wipes. These are not the same as the white clotheez two sided wipes at all. the white ones are much thicker (at least twice as thick with the washcloth terry) and fluffier. These are the micro-terry on one side and flannel on the other, and are just slightly thicker than two-sided flannel with some scrubby terry on the one side. If the white ones were too thick for you, but you love the terry option on one side and need it much thinner- these are what you are looking for. The velour/terry ones would also fit the bill for that criteria (different material altogether, but similar thickness) but are instead a square.
