Black is versatile no matter what fabric it is and Black Gauze is no exception. Lightly crinkled Black Gauze is very sheer. It is suitable for curtains, valances, and lightweight wraps. This 100% cotton gauze is easy to sew, but should be preshrunk before cutting. Wash by hand or on the delicate cycle in cold water with a gentle detergent. Gauze also needs edge-finishing since it tends to ravel.
