Especially ideal for nuno felting projects but also for textile manipulation techniques & fabric sculpture. Tear, cut, scrunch and stretch this extremely lightweight and very open weave cotton fabric. Easily manipulated in a multitude of ways – bunched, distressed, layered or flat. Wonderful for nuno-felting with our 19 micron wool rovings or add a bit of lustre with our unique Uniblends. Use this fabric to create texture in machine or hand stitching as well as weaving. Stiffen with fabric stiffener to create structural projects. Layering and collaging different coloured gauze produces amazing depth and variation in colours.
This almost black cotton gauze / cheesecloth, weighs around 15gm/m – a Grade 10 Cheesecloth with a thread count of 20 x 12 threads per square inch. Wash in cold water. Despite thorough rinsing after hand dyeing, we cannot guarantee colourfastness of these fabrics. Slight colour bleed occasionally occurs on dark colours when subjected to heat or friction. If colour fastness is critical to your project, pre-washing of the fabric is recommended.
Made from 100% cotton, up to 10% shrinkage occurs after dyeing. Longer pre-cut lengths of 2.5 metres are suitable for nuno felting scarves, wraps and garments. This felting muslin is also great as a base fabric to add strength to a variety of felting projects.
