Natural White Cheesecloth is a superb light airy 100% cotton fabric with a wonderful relaxed look and style.
Cheesecloth has a characteristic semi sheer appearance and is from the same family as muslin but usually slightly heavier. Its carded cotton yarns give a slightly textured appearance which is soft and almost brushed. The addition of a crinkled finish gives this wonderful natural white colourway a very versatile, easy wear easy care style. Throughout the '70s cheesecloth fabrics were used for high fashion garments with a hippy / boho style, now a new take on the style has made a come back.
Natural White Cheesecloth has a wonderful drape quality, is malleable and soft and stable on the width, with slight ease lengthwise due to the vertical crinkles. When you have washed your fabric just shake it out and then twist it lengthwise and leave to dry naturally and the vertical crinkles will be re-emphasised! Use the same method when packing your made up garments and you won’t have to worry about creases where you don’t want them.
Use Natural White Cheesecloth to make cool and comfortable S/S clothing that’s perfect for daywear and evening wear too. Add some cotton crochet lace trim for extra glamour. Try Bardot and gypsy style ruffle tops, extend this trend to make maxi dresses and jumpsuits. By adding a muslin lining or cotton voile you give yourself extra versatility to create style with less fullness and added modesty. Super relaxed palazzo style pants, culottes and culotte style shorts will all have a superb feminine flair when made in this excellent fabric.
Mix and match your cheesecloth with our fabulous Witching Hour Black colourway to create striking and contrasting ensembles. This cool cotton cheesecloth will also make wonderful nightwear such as nightgowns and cute camisole & shorts ensembles. By combining the black and white you can achieve your own super cute retro '50s styles. Add the black cheesecloth as a frill or ruffle on the hem, add black rouleau straps and a cute black bow at the centre front and the '50s styling will be perfect!
As this excellent cheesecloth will form perfect ruffles and frills, why not make fabulous tiered summer dresses? Perfect for packing for those summer holiday adventures.
Costumiers will find a plethora of uses for this excellent fabric and if fancy dress or cos play is more your style, use Natural White Cheesecloth to make angels, ghosts and mummy costumes.
Natural cheesecloths have been used for centuries for covering food products and in culinary uses. This truly versatile fabric is perfect for these purposes and for use in soapmaking, lavender sachet and herbal preparations. Mixed media and textiles artists, this is a must for your fabric stash!
