cotton & linen

Bleached Linen
Harem Cloth
Unbleached Scrim
Cheescloth

I'm a newbie to the fabric buying world so I don't know the types and weights too well. I've been seeking and experimenting with figuring out which natural fabric weights will work with felting. I'm attracted to cotton and linen more than silk, though I am told silk felts easiest. Photos above are: bleached linen (from Dharma), harem cloth aka cotton gauze (Dharma), unbleached scrim (Satin Moon), cheese cloth (Britex). These are all taken before washing. They do soften and shrink afterward.
