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.
What is the differennce between Muslim and polyester/cotton?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2018

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.
Is this material soft like blankey soft?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2016

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.
can this fabric be used for hand embroidery?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would think so. It should work well. (I do embroidery myself.) Keep in mind it is yellowish, since it is unbleached. Some light to moderate embroidery should be fine, (maybe a monogram or border) however, if I were doing much embroidery, a lot of satin stitch, or crewel work, or very dense, I would back this fabric (or any fabric) with some kind of interfacing, even lightweight interfacing. I have gotten interfacings that are specifically aimed at embroidery work.
Can I make a backdrop and paint on it?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t think so. The fabric would absorb the paint.
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.
Would this product be good as a wall covering in an art gallery? Something that will hold up to repeated nailing of artwork?
A shopper on Sep 25, 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.

A shopper on Nov 22, 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

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.

Nice, denser weave
Just what I needed! This muslin is an opaque, denser weave, which was what I wanted, since I'm using this muslin to protect materials for archival storage. This is also a very stable cloth with good width for pattern layout (even after shrinks a little, but not as much as looser weaves of muslin), if you're using it for pattern drafting and alterations. You might want a lighter weight of muslin, however, if you're using it for underlining in clothing, because it will be a bit boardy and won't drape much.
