Here's a loosely handwoven fabric that compacts when washed and shrunk to produce a wonderful textured pattern. It's perfect for Renaissance Faire costuming and theater costuming. It's a lovely natural creme color and can be used "as is" effectively or it can be dyed beautifully to rich wonderful colors with our dyes. The natural fabric color will lend itself to more subtle color tones in dyeing - perfect for historical recreation colors. The fabric looks like a typical "homespun" in it's unwashed state. But as soon as you wash and dry it, it crinkles up into a loose, repeating chevron pattern that looks nubby. Great for stage work because the fabric looks "old fashioned". Inspired by many of our customer's requests for this type of fabrication. Would also make interesting drapes for home décor! 100% cotton and woven in Bali.

I absolutely love this fabric. We are using it for baby swaddle wraps. It's soft and absorbent with a crinkled but soft texture. There are no open spaces in the weave once it's washed. It shrinks more than the notes indicate for us about 25% in each direction.

This is everything I was hoping for and more. Great natural color and irregular weave hadn't counted on it feeling so wonderfully silky. Planning to make nuno felt with it. Wish it weren't so darned expensive so I could buy lots!

Took a couple hot washings and a bit of bleach but it is now really lovely!

I waited from April until the end of September for this fabric and I am glad I did. I needed for a costume and once it was washed the texture was spot on. It's also got a little bit of an inherent elastic quality after it's washed so it makes for very comfy shirts and wonderful arm or leg wraps. More natural looking than medical gauze but much easier to keep up than muslin or normal cotton gauze fabrics.
