After the hot water wash, hot dry, it's soft and quite strong. I'm using this as a 'muslin' for a few all cotton supportive bra design. The bias is quite stretchy, for a woven, and the fabric is soft on the skin. The 'natural' more so than the other dyed. Thin, and somewhat see-thru, as expected. Self lining tends to stop the see-thru I noticed (not important in my application, just fyi). Really like this range of broadcloth. If I was going to make any wearable garments/test wear 'muslins' from the lower cost broadcloths, I'd chose the 2.98 version, for some faint bit of drape, lightweight, and still so strong. The Premium is really just too thick and stiff to mimic most wearable fabrics. It's only a bit less thick than Kona. Neither have the type of coating/finish you find on some lower cost cottons, that just seems to never wash off, so that's a big plus. As always with cotton, beware of over drying.

This cotton is a nice, sturdy fabric. I had found this a great alternative to buying muslin, mainly for patterning. This is nonstretch, a standard weight for quilting cotton, and doesn't drape-- it IS broad cloth after all. I think this would work best as lining fabric, or for items like bags, purses, or fabric book covers. While it's suggested to use this for apparel, I wouldn't use it for anything "comfy." This is why I prefer using it for patterning. It won't move around so much while I'm marking or cutting.
