Is this chemically treated at all? e.g. permanent press, flame retardant
A shopper on Mar 9, 2017
can you see through it?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Muslin is lightweight and you would be able to see light through it, but you would not be able to see through it like a sheer fabric.
Does this come in a 48" roll or is it folded in half then rolled up? Don't have room to store a 48" tall roll.
A shopper on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This will depend on how many yards are ordered. If you order 5 or less yards then it will most likely come folded. More than that will generally come rolled on a tube, not folded.
How thick is it?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Its quite heavy for my toile work. Actually heavy enough to make bedsheets or curtains.
What is the differennce between Muslim and polyester/cotton?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Muslin is 100% cotton whereas poly/cotton fabric contains a blend of polyester and cotton.
Is this material soft like blankey soft?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This material is soft but is not soft the way that plush fabric is soft. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
Wondering if the muslin is good for doll making?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, muslin can be used for doll making.
Is this a good fabric to make bedroom curtains and which would take dye better?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I owned a window covering business for over 20 years and would not use muslin for any type of window covering. A better choice would be a cotton sateen. Yes, it is going to cost more than muslin, but will yield a better result. An added benefit would be that you can skip the dying process as there are so many color choices available in cotton sateen. If you don't like the luster of cotton sateen, there also some low luster cotton fabrics available. And make sure that the fabric you purchase is classified as a drapery or multipurpose home furnishings fabric.
Is muslin durable enough to make tote/grocery bags with?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Muslin is pretty durable, but not durable enough for handles and the handle attachment points. Would last a lot longer than a plastic bag, but wear out much sooner than a cotton duck bag.
Will water go through this.I need to strain milk whay?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Of course. It's great for that. Be sure to pre-wash the fabric before you use it, though, to remove any sizing that might have been applied at the mill. Sizing is a solution of various compounds that give the fabric a crisp "feel" or "hand", but you don't want that to dissolve into your milk.
Is this fabric prewashed? I'm trying to box up my wedding gown and it says it has to be prewashed and unbleached muslin. Thanks in advance.
A shopper on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would wash it before using it for such an important item, without fabric softeners.
would this muslin be suitable for farm style curtains?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you could use this Muslin for farm style curtains but keep in mind that if exposed to direct sunlight, the longevity will probably suffer.
Is this muslin heavy enough weight to be used for a pirate style jacket? If so is it easily dyed?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion, NO, it isn't of enough weight to be used for a pirate style jacket. I would choose a Kona cotton instead. It seems like it could be easily dyed, but you'd have to wash the fabric first, to remove any factory sizing or finish that it might have.
Can I use muslim to back curtains?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion, NO, it isn't suitable for backing drapes. You need something more substantial that is specially made for drapery backing.
how stiff is it? I need the stiff muslin that is used in fashion schools to drape garments of the dress form.
A shopper on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As a costume designer, I use this muslin to drape on the dress form and have been pleased with it. It is my go-to muslin and you can't beat the price. It has the usual stiffness of the starches and finishes applied to it in the mill. However, I will say that at 4.5 oz, it is on the lighter side of a mid-weight fabric. If you consider that duck cloth is perhaps 12 oz, and some denims 9 or 10, that gives you a comparison. I am not specifically familiar with the type of "stiff" muslin required in fashion schools but you may want to look for a higher ounce weight per yard. Maybe 5.5/6 or greater.
Is this muslin suitable for cheesemaking and other food uses?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2018

Is this muslin good for painting theater back drops?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2018
I was thinking of making pillow cases, would this fabric work for the pillow case you put one 1st as the under layer. Then what kind of fabric is good to make the top pillow cover? Thank you
Melissa L on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you're using a pillow with feathers, we recommend ticking as this will prevent the feathers from poking through. Otherwise, sheeting would be fine.
Will it ruffled line after cutting?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I understand the question, but this fabric is good for ruffles.
How well would this work for asile runner? Thank you
A shopper on Oct 17, 2017

how many tread per inch?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This muslin has a thread count of 68 x 68.
how do you like the quality of the thread? is it easy to fray at the tearing edge?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is good quality muslin for my purpose which is as press cloth in an herbal press (holds the herbal mash while it is under high pressure to extract the liquid). I don't know about the fraying.
is this durable as a slip cover?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not recommend using muslin as a slipcover.

BEST ANSWER: We do not recommend using muslin as a slipcover.
Would this work for a king size duvet cover or king size sheets?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Muslin would work for a duvet cover, but may not be soft enough for sheets, depending on personal preference. We suggest a wider width muslin, like 108 or 125 inches, so seams aren't required. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project. We also have a tutorial on how to make a duvet cover:

Hi, would this work well for tablecloths?
A shopper on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It might be thin but you could use it for a tablecloth!
How many yds. are on an entire roll of this muslin?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This muslin comes in rolls of 50, 100, or 150 yards depending on what our vendor ships us. If you require a large quantity, please contact our customer service at either or 877-781-2967 Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm EST.
I am wanting to use this product for a hanging mural project and want to be sure that edges are not unfinished with frayed fringes as I have seen on muslin bolts in the store. Are the fabric edges finished? Also I would like the fabric to come on a roll, so the fabric is smooth and flat, and not on a bolt which puts a crease down the middle. Will 50 yards be delivered as one piece on a roll?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The vertical edges of this muslin are not frayed, they are finished. The only part that would be frayed would be where the fabric is cut horizontally on both ends. We don't ship fabric on bolts, we ship on rolls if the yardage is more than a few yards (which your order would be!) so you don't have to worry about that annoying crease. The maximum continuous yardage for this fabric is 150 yards but the rolls may have seams in several places throughout the roll. If the possibility of having a seam on your roll won't work for you, please contact customer service to see if we can get you a 50 yd. piece without seams.
Looking for a muslin to use for canning and cooking. Would this be a good match?
Candace R on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This muslin should work for those applications. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.

Good Quality Muslin!!
The best type of quality muslin that easily goes for a lot more in local fabric stores. So glad I got 25 yards of it! This will go a long way in my sample making.

Unbleached Muslin is great!
I bought five yards of the unbleached Muslin for quilting. It is a nice weight: opaque, not thin and almost transparent like other Muslins. I use this Muslim for piecing quilt blocks. It is the perfect color for combing with retro and antique print fabrics.
