Cotton gauze fabrics have a loose open weave and are therefore lightweight, airy, and slightly crinkled. This gives it a more casual look.
This fabric is often used for baby wraps, and breezy dresses and blouses.
It is very soft and drapes nicely.
Because of its open, airy weave, it is the perfect fabric to wear during the hot summer months. Although the possibilities of the material are endless. (They could make very cosy pyjamas too)
Cotton Double Gauze is, just as the name suggests, two layers of woven fabric bound together. This fabric has therefore more body, and will be less translucent removing the need to add lining to your garment.
