Muslin, Hessian, Osnaburg & Scrim
At Doughty’s, we like to cover all bases. As well as offering a wide range of delicate silks and soft cotton fabrics, we stock a selection of stronger, more coarse options. Our collection of muslin, hessian, osnaburg and scrim fabrics is ideal if you need something coarse and hard-wearing.
Because of their roughness, thickness and durability, these fabrics are traditionally used to produce sacks. But more recently, fabrics like hessian and osnaburg have become popular as a craft material. They adapt easily and hold well in different shapes, as well as soaking up paint and dye with ease.
Accessories and decorative pieces are being handmade from materials like osnaburg more and more. From plant pot covers to shabby chic bags, they’re slowly making way into people’s homes, especially those with a keen interest in crafts. With different widths and lengths available, our selection of coarse fabrics is ideal if you want to get started on your own products.
