Muslin is a versatile, 100% cotton cloth with a plain weave. Bleached muslin is white, and unbleached muslin has a more natural irregular beige color. Muslin comes in different widths, thread counts, and weights measured in ounces. Generally the higher the thread count, the better the quality, and the lighter the weight, the easier it drapes. Muslin is great for theater and photography, bandage wraps, and culinary purposes. It’s also handy for garment mock-ups.
