What's the Difference? Double Cloth vs. Double Gauze

Our Textured Cotton Double Cloth and Cotton Double Gauze are Birdie Tried-&-Trues and fabrics we want to wear all year round! While they sound similar, they are totally unique and suited to very different projects. Let’s break it down!

Textured Cotton Double Cloth

Woven from a blend of cotton and nylon, our Textured Cotton Double Cloth features a thick, cushiony hand that's reminiscent of your favourite quilt. The tight double cloth weave gives this fabric a uniquely textured surface and a somewhat-heavy, structured drape. Available in a range of earthy, vintage colours, this fabric is a dream for lightweight jackets like the Grainline Studio Tamarack Jacket and boxy tops like the Paper Theory LB Pullover

Organic Cotton Double Gauze

Our Organic Cotton Double Gauze is much lighter in weight and features a looser weave, compared to our Textured Cotton Double Cloth. Made from two lightweight layers of gauze that are basted together, it has a puckered, lived-in texture that will become more pronounced after washing. This fabric is airy with a billowy drape that makes it perfect for a breezy Friday Company Sagebush Top and relaxed fit Seamwork Joss Pants

I am looking for the info on how to iron the organic cotton double gauze fabric. I have just washed my piece and I need to iron it before I cut it into the Itch to Stitch short-sleeve Bonn shirt.

Do you have fabric with 4-way stretch suitable for girl’s leggings? I want to use the Love Notions pattern for an 8 year old for back to school.
