Cheesecloth is one of the most versatile fabrics around. Use it in the kitchen as a strainer for sauces and gravy, or use it as a craft material. Cheesecloth is perfect for light wafting curtains for the theatre and it makes the perfect Halloween ghost. Cheesecloth fabric is also ideal as a cleaning cloth since it is absorbent and virtually lint-free. Grade 50 Cheesecloth is lighter than the 90 Grade Cheesecloth, but at 28 x 24 threads per square inch, it has a tighter weave than Grade 10 Cheesecloth. Cheesecloth is also often used with wool batting to prevent bearding in quilts. This cheese cloth is exceptional for cooking, cleaning, and costumes.

Why did you choose this?
I'd like to use this for wedding table runners. Can it be dyed? Is it washable? Does it drape well? Which weight would be best?
BEST ANSWER: Grade 50 is a very loose weave so it would depend on what look you're going for. Being all cotton I would think it would dye well.
If fabric is broken in pieces, about how long would each piece be? I want to be sure they will be long enough to use for table runners.
BEST ANSWER: While we cannot guarantee what size pieces this cheesecloth will come in if the yardage isn't continuous, you could definitely sew or attach two pieces together if you needed the extra length.
Will this fabric shrink and get crinkly after washing and dry? Or does it stay flat?
BEST ANSWER: I would not wash in a washing machine and you will have to iron it.
I use cheesecloth to strain soaked ground coffee for an iced coffee base/syrup. Can't find tighter weaves in stores; don't need a roll of it. Trying to eliminate sediment. What does your sample kit contain (needs to be 10-12" squares at least)? Guessing may need 60 grade minimum.
i am looking for some cheese cloth for an industrial application . It is to go over filters to protect them. Not sure as to what grade to use and i need to be 3 ft. wide ?
BEST ANSWER: We recommend ordering samples of various grades.
which is the best grade for filtering fry oil?

High quality product at an excellent price. I use this in my business as a durable scratch and lint free way of cleaning and polishing brass and woodwind instruments ... especially trombone hand slides and valve casings. Price is roughly one half what I was paying through my usual suppliers.
