Dot Double Gauze

Double Gauze 1


We’re very excited about the new batch of double gauze we’ve just received from Japan! These gorgeous soft fabrics feature a muted palette of greys, pinks and blues that make us think of cozy days ahead.

Double gauze is a fabric we really love here at Spool of Thread. If you’re not familiar with it, double gauze is made of two layers of open-weave cotton, which are sewn together at regular intervals while each layer is being manufactured. This double layer structure gives it a casual and lightweight feel, with a bit more body than a regular mid-weight cotton. It has a lovely drape similar to a light-weight linen.

Double gauze is ideal for a variety of projects but works best where comfort and coziness is key: like a lovely tank, an unstructured dress, pajamas or a lush backing for a quilt. A smaller project such as a double gauze infinity scarf would also make an awesome gift for someone special or a lovely idea for yourself!
