Smooth, clear finish. Has small diamond-shaped figures with a dot in the centre of each. The pattern suggests the eye of a bird. Very soft, lightweight, and absorbent. woven with a loosely twisted filling to increase absorbency. Launders very well. No starch is applied because the absorption properties must be of the best. The material must be free from any foreign matter. It is also called "diaper cloth" and is used for that purpose as well as very good towelling. Also "novelty" Birdseye effects used as summer dress fabrics and t shirts.
