This burlap fabric is 5 ounces per yard, which means it has a looser weave and is lighter weight than typical burlap. It’s sheer quality makes it particularly popular for event and party décor like tablecloths, overlays, and draping. It’s used for weddings, festivals, Halloween, and holiday decorating. It’s also used in theater for set design and backdrops, and as a utility fabric for covering plants.

I bought this burlap to make a light fixture with. We are building a farmhouse & I appreciate the rustic, imperfect look of 5oz, as well as the way the light will travel through the weave. It's gonna look awesome!

As a tablecloth, would the table show through?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would show through. Go with a heavier burlap, tighter weave.
Can I just get a bolt of this?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We cut from a very large bolt and ship the fabric on a roll. So basically you decide how large you want the bolt to be.

How wide is this fabric?

BEST ANSWER: 40" wide
is the 5 oz burlap thinner and more pliable than the 7 Oz?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The weave is looser, which makes it more pliable, but the strands of burlap themselves may not be thinner.
Do you have 5.5inx30ft in burlap 14cmx9.1m?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The closest we have is 6in x 100ft burlap that's often used as tree wrap:

Can this be washed & dried before using as a tablecloth at a wedding?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It may be hand washed, gently, and hung to dry. It may distort the weave, however.
I would use it for a project in doors so does it produce off gassing (smell)?
A shopper on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All burlap will have a natural jute smell. This burlap is not hydrocarbon free, so it may have a kerosene-like odor. People do still use it indoors. You could order a sample to get a better sense of the smell. Our 10 oz burlap is hydrocarbon-free.

JIM R on May 7, 2017

is there a linen with the look of loose weave of a 5oz burlap?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2017

I want to make a dress?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not recommend making clothing out of burlap because of its rough and itchy texture. Linen burlap has a similar look but is 100% linen, making it suitable for clothing.
