Japanese Fulling Wool - Black
Wool gauze designed by Hiroshi Murase. Made of a looser weave, this wool fulls exceptionally well. Fulling wool gauze can be used with a resist paste recipe to dramatic effect thanks to the wool's radical shrinking ability. Shibori patterning or stencil application of fulling resist paste can achieve three-dimensional texture, or a play of transparency against opacity in a lace-like treatment.
Fulling may cause width shrinkage by as much as 50% (less in length).
Untreated wool; 180cm (71") wide.
