The Cotton Net Fabric has a stiff feel to it that disappears after washing. This heavy honey comb net fabric is not mercerized but it takes in our Fiber Reactive Dyes beautifully. It has a two way stretch and is a softer, heavier netting than tulle. Nuno Felters are catching on to this as a great base for their felting because of its very open weave, and it is stronger (also heavier, keep in mind) than the light weight silk gauzes that are often used.

Not recommended for clothing or accessories.

wow! this gets soft when washed! quite a bit of shrinkage but them I'm playing with the felting possibilities and expect a lot more shrinkage. Takes color beautifully gives a sturdier sort of result from nuno felting but now I have a substrate I can add my feathers to as the quill ends fit into the net.I'm dyeing to run this and my fleeces through my needle ffelting machine I am eyeing a series of pouches of felt and feathers...with its non-ravel edges I will applique it down to other fabrics. the edge is especially nice cut with a pinked edge.

After reading previous reviews I expected the net to be stiffer. It is actually very soft and drapey. Stiffer would be better for my millinery projects but it worked fine for most things. You can't beat the price! I was very happy with the quick delivery.

holes are about 1mm in diameter and run on a horizontal parallel honeycomb grid.. Hand is rough and stiff but if you need this kind of body it will be perfect. It does have drape. Shrinkage rate is about 9 - 12% in both length and width after washing in warm water and hanging to drying. I used it to make a sheer Regency (1805) era evening gown. It suited my needs but the garment seams are a bit scratchy against the skin.

Totally awesome fabric. Fun to dye (used both natural indigo and Procion Mx) and came out GREAT! Really had no project in mind - just wanted to try it out. Will buy again.
