What is muslin?This unbleached plain cotton muslin gauze is a light, semi sheer fabric with a coarse, plain weave. Muslin originated from Dhaka, Bangladesh. It is now produced widely, and our stocks come from either India or Egypt. Muslin is a natural fabric, made from 100% cotton, and this is a natural, unbleached muslin which makes it useful for food use like straining and finely sieving foods and for making jams and jellies. If you're looking for butter muslin for kitchen use, this is the perfect choice. Always wash before using with food!
What can I use instead of unbleached cotton muslin?As well as this unbleached cotton muslin we also sell a white cotton muslin fabric which can be used for this purpose. For more of our unprocessed, natural fabrics, click here. If you like muslin but want some colour, take a look at our Dyed Muslin fabric! It has a tighter weave than this lightweight unbleached butter muslin and is great for colourful home furnishing projects and dress and skirt linings.

Colours can appear differently on screen, so although every care has been taken to represent them accurately, some variations may occur from real life. To check colours are as you expect we recommend you order a sample, to see and feel the fabric in the flesh. Free samples are available for all fabrics! Colours can also vary between dye lots, so please ensure you order enough for your project.
So we can package your fabrics beautifully for posting, they will be taken off the roll and folded. We try our best to always send fabric in one continuous length although this is not always possible, we will contact you if this is the case. Some fabrics are also on sale in our shop in Bridport, Dorset, so on rare occasions stock may not be available where it appears to be online. We do our best to avoid this and many fabrics can be reordered, again if this occurs we will contact you to discuss the options.
To keep your lovely new fabrics in the best condition we recommend checking out the Product Info for details on how to care for them. Washable fabrics should always be hand washed, before cutting and making your projects, in order to allow for shrinkage.
