As a tablecloth, would the table show through?
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would show through. Go with a heavier burlap, tighter weave.

Can this be washed & dried before using as a tablecloth at a wedding?
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)?
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.
can it be dyed?
BEST ANSWER: Since it's not hydrocarbon free, that may affect how well the product takes dye. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
is there a linen with the look of loose weave of a 5oz burlap?
BEST ANSWER: We have a linen burlap, but the weave isn't as loose as the 5 oz burlap.
I want to make a dress?
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.
The weight is 5 oz per yard?
BEST ANSWER: 5 oz refers to the density of the weave. The higher the oz number, the denser the weave.
