Fine dhaka muslin 180 count. Natural white .

A 180 count fine hand woven cotton. I had difficulty counting the yarn with naked eye and had to call in the services of my dear hubby who has better eye sight than me :)

So fine a hand woven fabric made of hand spun yarn. A very rare fabric, made in the age old traditions of Bangla. Used for anga-vastrams of kings and sages through out history.

Dhaka muslin, on the verge of dying out, was revived by a group of weavers sometime in the 1990s. Making muslin is a very sensitive and lengthy process that takes loads of patience. The yarn breaks frequently. Spinning is done only early mornings and after dusk. The heat during the day breaks the thread. Therefore, even now, available only in limited quantity and mostly only made to order for top end designers and gurus.


Color ----------- naturally bleached white
Width ----------- 44 inches
Texture -------- soft, super soft after first wash
Suitability ----- summer dress, tops, pillow cover, quilt backing etc
Drape ---------- Mildly crisp, will drape beautifully after first wash
Care ------------ regular wash, tumble dry

Buying options - Select in the right side panel.

Answer: Yes, my fabrics are woven / knitted of natural yarn - cotton, linen and silk, except for the stretchable and brocade fabrics. A 5% inclusion of lycra / elastane is present in stretchable fabrics. I would really like to avoid this inclusion at the first available chance, however, the 'stretch' is vital to certain designs. Brocade fabrics contains bullion thread and is not made of natural fiber. Rayon blended fabrics contain natural fibers, but be aware that Rayon fiber is extracted from plant pulp with the help of chemicals.
