What is cotton Lawn? Since the Middle Ages, thin, soft, closely woven, plain-weave fabrics have been in high demand. Originally manufactured from linen, these smooth, lustrous fabrics are now made with combed and carded cottons. The most common fabrics of this kind are cambric, batiste and lawn.
Named after the French city of Laon, cotton lawn is manufactured with fine yarns to create a high-thread-count, lightweight fabric with a silky, smooth feel. The finish used on lawn fabrics can vary with some lawns having a crisp, crease-resistant finish, though the fabric is never actually stiff. Lawns are generally opaque and depending on the color and print, they can be a bit sheer.
Do these fabrics look too sheer? That's the nature of the fabric before it's washed - it will be more opaque after washing. (Less transparent.)
Price is per quarter yard (9" linear), please order in multiples for desired total yardage (example: for 1/2 yard enter "2" for quantity, for 1 1/2 yards enter "6" for quantity). Fabric will be shipped in contiguous, uncut yardage unless otherwise requested.
