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.

I absolutely love these! Use them daily! They are such great quality and it’s been a nice alternative. I got tired of buying and using so many paper towels. I was hesitant at first but my friend sold me on these and this brand and I do not regret buying them!
Very good and soft
Love these towels! We use them as napkins, to wipe the counters, and as dishcloths. I followed the same pre-wash instructions as the prefold diapers and they are extremely absorbent. I often hand-wash and dry them at the sink after using as napkins to reduce the number of machine washes. I've gotten a couple small stains on them when I wasn't quick to rinse after use, but overall they still look great after several washes.
I absolutely love these clotheez paper towel alternative! We use them for so many things: wiping up spills, cleaning up children's hands and faces, spot cleaning! I can not say enough good about these! I use a hanging wet bag in my closet off my kitchen, and we just put them in there when we are done with them. It makes everything so easy!
This was my first time purchasing Cloth towels instead of paper towels/napkins. These work so much better! Much more absorbent than the paper napkins we had been using and so much less waste! They even double for washing dishes occasionally. I will be buying more!
