Gauze Fabric Product Guide

Cotton gauze fabric, sometimes referred to as baby muslin, is thin and translucent with a loose, open weave.

This 100% cotton fabric is light and breathable which makes it great for baby wraps or blankets and comfortable lightweight clothing. Check out our selection of cotton gauze fabric for your next apparel project!

This crinkly-textured material has a soft hand and supple drape, so it’s also a good choice for airy semi-sheer curtains.

Scrim and cheesecloth, which both have a looser weave, are also sometimes called gauze.

Working with gauze isn’t difficult but here are a few tips.

Gauze is pretty slippery so cut with sharpened scissors or a rotary cutter with a new blade.

Use sharp pins when pinning, and mark your notches instead of cutting since cuts in this fabric can be hard to see.

When sewing, use a longer stitch length to avoid puckering.

Finish the seams with a serger, zigzag stitch, or fray check to keep the fabric from unraveling.

Cotton gauze should be hand washed in cold water, but can also be washed in a machine on delicate to avoid shrinking and damage. Hang dry or tumble dry with no heat.
