Muslin Fabric Product Guide

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.

Which weight muslin should I use for an ironing board cover?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any of the muslin fabric would work but one on the heavier end of the range of weights would probably be best. You can order a couple samples if you want to feel them before deciding.

Which muslin is good for quilt backing?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They would all work for a quilt backing, but make sure the width is wide enough for your quilt. Widths range from 45 to 120 inches. Once you pick a width, the choices will be narrowed down and you can decide if you want bleached (white) or unbleached (natural color). We have samples available if you want to compare any.
