Charcoal, a navy /grey / black cotton gauze with lighter tonal variations measures around +/-85cm after dyeing. Also referred to as scrim or muslin, this very loose weave hand dyed cotton gauze comes in pre-cut lengths of 1/2 m to 4.8 metres.
Ideal for nuno felting projects, fabric sculpture and textile manipulation techniques. Tear, cut, scrumple and stretch this extremely lightweight and very open weave cotton fabric. Easily manipulated in a multitude of ways, bunched, pulled apart, 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 and hand stitching, trapping and 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, dark grey cheesecloth /gauze 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, so if critical to your project, pre-washing of the fabric 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 felting projects.
