Oatmeal Colour Unbleached Osnaburg Cotton Fabric
Please select all options.
I like to use this fabric when I am sashiko stitching and would like to stitch through two or more layers of cloth. It is also excellent for a foundation fabric for backing your fabric pieces when stitching boro cloths.
Ordering: Sold pre-cut in 19"X22" (quarter meter) pieces. If you order more than 1 each piece will be that size.
This fabric has a lot of manufacturing starch in it when it is new (it is almost cardboard stiff) until you wash that out, and then it is very soft and drape-y. When it is washed it will soften a lot and be soft with good drape. I wash it and put it through the dryer twice before using it because I want to be sure I have got all the shrink and starch out of it.
Because it is a very open weave it will fray when washed, it is best to zig zag the raw edges BEFORE you wash it. It will shrink more than most fabrics.
