Cotton scrim

Hand dyed cotton scrim with a very loose open weave which manipulates and distresses easily.  White cotton gauze also available.  Very lightweight fabric, 88-90cm wide &s often used as a stabilising fabric in felting and other textile arts. The cotton gauze weighs around 15gm/m – a Grade 10 Cheesecloth with a thread count of 20 x 12 threads per square inch. The rustic weave, occasional slubs and irregularities makes this cotton gauze an ideal felting fabric for nuno-felting.

Cotton scrim / gauze adds great texture in a variety of other textile applications, paper making, mixed media and scrap-booking. Scrunch, tear, stretch, cut or layer the scrim for a wide variety of effects. Also handy for use as a photo prop for baby photos. Not suitable for making garments other than for embellishing. With thorough rinsing after hand dyeing, the dyed gauze remains colourfast in cool water. We  cannot guarantee colourfastness if exposed to hot water or high alkalinity.
