FAQ:

Q. Gina, there are so many choices, how do I choose, or even know what I want?

A. Here is a basic breakdown of our different fabric options, the pluses and minuses, etc.

Birdseye cotton: This is a 100% cotton fabric that is woven on a special loom called a “dobby loom”. It creates a particular weave that forms a diamond pattern with a dot (actually an under weave) in the middle that looks similar to the eye of a robin, or a bird’s eye. It is this special weave that gives this fabric its strength, softness, durability and absorbability. After it is washed, the fibers “fill” or quilt up, fluff up and become more interlocked. There is a slight grippy texture on one side of the fabric and almost a flannel like softness on the other. It is very absorbent and quick drying. We carry three types:

1. Organic Birdseye Cotton: Birdseye that was grown from organic cotton seed, and by strict organic growing methods and without the use of chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. It ranges in color from ivory to light tan. No bleach, peroxide, whiteners or brighteners are ever used. Our Organics are GOTS certified. Organic Birdseye is slightly heavier than the non-organic versions.

2. Unbleached Birdseye Cotton: Cotton grown in the typical method. Pesticides and/or herbicides may have been used in the production methods. It ranges in color from ivory to light tan. No bleach, peroxide, whiteners or brighteners are ever used. Our fabric is OKEO TEX certified, which means that no harmful chemicals are left in the fabric.


3. White Birdseye Cotton: Cotton grown in the typical method. Pesticides and/or herbicides may have been used in the production methods. It has been bleached white with peroxide, but rinsed completely out. It is also a certified OKEO TEX product.

Organic Cotton Flannel: Flannel has a plain (over and under weave) with some loose fibers that add fluff and softness to the fabric. This cotton was grown from organic cotton seed, and by strict organic growing methods and without the use of chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. It ranges in color from ivory to light tan. No bleach, peroxide, whiteners or brighteners are ever used. Our Organics are GOTS certified. Flannel is softer than Birdseye, but not as absorbent.

White Cotton Flannel: Flannel has a plain (over and under weave) with some loose fibers that add fluff and softness to the fabric. This fabric is an OKEO TEX fabric, but has been bleached white with peroxide. Flannel is softer than Birdseye, but not as absorbent.

Organic Cotton and Bamboo Velour: This is a very plush and soft knitted fabric that has a “pile” (velvet like texture) on one side and has a texture like a tee shirt on the other. Ours contain 70% Viscose Bamboo (a silky-soft fiber), 28% Organic Cotton, and 2% polyester. The fabric is a natural creamy ivory color. These make great wipes and are very soft.

Organic Cotton and Bamboo Fleece: This is also a very plush and soft knitted fabric that is made of 70% Organic Viscose Bamboo and 30% Organic Cotton fibers. The fabric is a natural creamy ivory color. This fabric has a pile that is more cushy than silky and also makes great wipes, facial cloths, etc. This may be the very best option for the most sensitive skin.



Q. When is 2 Ply better than 1-Ply, and vice-versa?

A. That depends greatly on your end use.

Baby Wipes: For diapering wipes, I personally prefer to have a few of each on hand.

1. The 2-Ply Birdseye 8x8 Little Wipe is the most versatile all around wipe because it does a great job of dealing with a messy bum. Plain and simple. A double thickness of cloth is better to keep that messy stuff away from one’s hand.

2. The 1-Ply Birdseye 8x8 Little Wipe is perfect for getting in all of those “nooks and crannies”. It is very easy to feel through the cloth to get everything nice and clean

3. 1 Ply Flannel 8x8 Little Wipe is very soft either dry or wet, but does a great job of getting baby nice and dry.

4. Organic Bamboo and Cotton Velour 8x8 Little Wipe is luxuriously silky soft, and great for blowing noses as well as washcloths.

5. Organic Cotton and Bamboo Fleece 8x8 Little Wipe is soft and fluffy, but sometimes a bit too thick to get in all of the crevices.

Napkins (Serviettes) and Kitchen Cleanup:

1. The 1-Ply Birdseye 8x8 Little Wipe is a bit thin and small for a nice napkin. These are great to dry your hands with, though.

2. The 2-Ply Birdseye 8x8 Little Wipe is great for casual napkins and things like making a sandwich, a lunch or kid’s napkin. They also fit nicely into most napkin holders.

3. 11x12 1 Ply Paperless Towel is meant to take the place of a typical paper towel, and can do everything a paper towel can do, but without ripping. These will shrink about 1 inch in either direction. And are OK for a napkin for most casual meals. These are GREAT for cleaning the counter tops with because you can feel through the cloth. These are also great for dish washing cloths, and a favorite of people who like to camp because they wash up and dry so quickly, and are very versatile.

4. 11x12 2 Ply Paperless Towel shrinks a bit less and wrinkles a bit less than the 1-ply version. These are heartier, thicker and much better for messy meals like BBQ Chicken. These are my favorite for general around the kitchen use.

5. 14x14 1 Ply Paperless Towels are great for a nicer dinner napkin. They are a larger size for bigger clean ups in the kitchen and can be easily folded in half or quarters to mop up a big spill.

6. 14x14 2 Ply Paperless Towels are very nice napkins, can be used to dry dishes, etc. Their size and double thickness are the ultimate in handy kitchen cloths.

About

Why Paperless Towels, Gina?

After graduating from Bauder College in Atlanta, GA in 1983 with a degree in Fashion Design. I moved back to my home state of Maryland for family reasons and worked at a fabric store for many years and designed and sewed custom-created formal wear and wedding dresses.

My life took a turn, and moved away from sewing (as a living) for a time; but then I sustained a shattered leg injury from a bad fall, which took a year to heal, but that injury began a domino effect of health related issues, and I found that I once again needed to make a living working from home on my own schedule. We then moved to the quiet, peaceful and beautiful Mountain State of West Virginia, where we live now.

All along, I loved, made, and used cloth napkins in my home for economic reasons, but more importantly simply because they feel better than paper napkins, and they never fall apart like paper napkins do. Then, I read about “paperless towels”, an idea similar to cloth napkins, but used to wipe down counters, wipe up messy kids, anything that you would use a paper towel for. Just like cloth napkins are better than paper napkins, these Paperless Towels are so much better than paper towels. My hip and cool nieces suggested that I sell on Etsy, which I began doing in 2010. We grew from buying fabric by the yard to buying by the 200 yard Industrial roll, and we added industrial sewing machines. We have grown from a business of 1 person (me) to having 2 additional employees. It is our hope that in the near future, we can continue to grow and employ other people from this beautiful region.
