White cotton scrim fabric has an almost gauze like look and feel to it. It is strong, absorbent and produces little lint. For these reasons you will find scrim fabrics in some operating rooms in the form of wipes, surgical curtains and some scrubs or uniforms. However, it is most often found in the theatre and film industries where it has many uses. It has the ability to "hide" scenery and actors until they have been lit, either from behind or from the front. This makes it possible to create special effects and make items seem to appear and disappear. Use this at your own Halloween parties to hide ghosts and ghoulies and make them appear when your guests walk by, for example. Or drape the fabric and attach creepy spiders and bats. And it is the perfect color for that mummy costume you have been "dying" to wear.
