What is Muslin Fabric? Durable, Breathable Cotton

What is Muslin Fabric?

Muslin cotton fabric is a loosely woven fabric with a weave that produces a fine, smooth texture. It’s believed to have once been as valuable as gold and was commonly traded around the world as a precious material. At Muslin Comfort, our products are comprised of 4ply, 8-layer muslin cotton, with each ply containing two intricately woven pieces of material.

Our Muslin Cotton Collection is made with 100% ultra-breathable muslin cotton, moderating your body temperature to help you get the perfect night’s sleep. It’s lightweight, moisture-wicking, hypoallergenic, and resistant to microbes, mites, and allergens, making it a cozy blanket year-round.

What is the Difference Between Muslin and Cotton?

Muslin fabric is actually made from cotton. But unlike traditional cotton weaves, muslin fabric has a weave that is loose. For example, a cotton shirt will have a tight weave to give it a specific texture for someone to appropriately wear. But with muslin fabric, the open weave allows for a much softer touch while remaining durable. 

What is Muslin Fabric Used For?

As a result of its durability, muslin fabric can be used for a wide variety of products, including home decor such as curtains, cleaning materials, quilting, and medical gauze. 

At Muslin Comfort we offer bedding blankets, throws, pillow shams, bath sheets, towels, washcloths, bathrobes, beach blankets, and crib blankets, all made with 100% muslin cotton.
