Best price I could find on the fabric. This fabric was exactly what I had in mind look wise when planning my project. I was excited to have found it.

I use it for 18th/19th century clothing. Washes and drys very well. Shrinkage is minimal but has a softer texture after laundering.

We will use this to cover hay bales for a farm/barn wedding. This fabric is perfect - it's coloring is similar to burlap, but it is smooth and will be comfortable to sit on.

This is my third order! This osnaburg washes and dries very well. The shrinkage is just the right amount to make it a softer fabric.
TAMRA L on May 11, 2017
I chose this fabric for some craft projects. I had shopped around and OFS had the best pricing I found!
TAMMY K on May 4, 2017
I just received my first order last week of this osnaburg. They are quick to ship! This is a lighter weight fabric, but washed and dried well. I always pre-shrink cotton before cutting.

Osnaburg can be used for anything. You can change the colors if you like. I've used it as suiting. The most simple fabric there is. Used to be used on plantations for everyday clothing. I've made curtains of it also.
Versatile fabric.

What is the thread count and weight?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2017
Is it good for hand embroidered cloth napkins?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think it would be, it's soft enough for a napkin. I don't do hand embroidery, so I'm not sure if that would work well on the osnaburg. It has a more open weave than muslin does.
Sorry, I don't know if this helps or not.
I want to use this for fine threads in punch needle work. Is this the same tight weave as Weavers Cloth?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's the same or very similar to weavers cloth, which we also carry. Both are a natural, but the color looks a little different. You can order samples if you want to compare.

Are the sides finished?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The selvage edges will prevent fraying but they are not finished.
I just purchased some and hope it will work ok sewn together for table runners?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use it for table runners, shower curtains etc. Works very well for these purposes
I can't use it if in more than one piece as I'm going to make draperies. Can you request a whole bolt?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Bolts vary in size, but you would most likely get 25 to 100 yard continuous pieces. Contact our customer service for more information at either or 877-781-2967 Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm EST.
Can it be used for kitchen towels?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't use it. It really lacks the ability to absorb. I stained it so I had to put it in water with walnut crystals, and it didn't absorb well.
Is this preshrunk? Is unbleached Osnaburg lighter or darker than natural?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it is not pre-shrunk, The color is same or lighter than natural, but varies by bolt.
Is this fabric permanent pressed?
