Unbleached, Non-Finished Muslin - Qty: 

Important Note:

This muslin will shrink when washed or dampened. So it is perfect for dolls designs/patterns that call for "shrinkable muslin" and use the "Dampen and Shrink Method." This is a technique where after completing and stuffing your doll body it is dampened causing the fabric to shrink and you end up with a firm doll body.
