Double gauze contains two light layers of gauze joined periodically by a thread that crosses from one layer to the other and back again. Made of 100% cotton, its open weave makes it absorbent, cool, soft and breathable. It is fairly stiff coming off the bolt, but after laundering, it has a soft slightly rumpled texture.
Pre-wash in your machine on the gentle cycle with Eucalan. Use hot water for the pre-wash to shrink as much as possible. Fluff in the dryer after line drying. Press with steam on the wrong side on the wool setting. After you have constructed your garment, gentle machine or hand wash in cool water and line dry.
