Muslin

Muslin is a plain woven cotton sheeting fabric that is probably the most ubiquitous fabric in theatre. Besides its use for costumes, muslin is used widely for scenery flats, backdrops, and cycloramas — in short, any surface that may be painted or that is being used to reflect light.

Rose Brand stocks a variety of muslins from 44" in width up to 39' wide without a seam (and many, many sizes in between). Our muslin is stocked in both flame retardant and non-flame retardant options, as well as in a variety of weights (referring to thread count) and colors. Click within the Fabric column of the charts below to obtain more info or buy a given muslin product.

Buy Muslin By The
Full Piece and Save!
If we don't have to cut it we pass the savings on to you! All roll and bale sizes are approximate and based on availability. We can only offer full piece pricing for piece sizes that we have in stock at the time of your order. If you need to know the exact yardage on full pieces in stock, please let us know. Pieces are either rolled or folded (if it makes a difference to you, please advise at the time of your order).
Flame Retardant
Most venues require scenery and soft goods to be flame retardant. If you use FR goods, Rose brand can provide a certificate. If you paint on FR fabric, there is a risk that the moisture in the paint will cause the salt crystals in flame retardant to leach to the surface, causing discoloration. You may prefer to start with NFR Muslin instead and add flame retardant to the paint or sizing, or spray with flame retardant after painting.
Weights
The 3 common weights of muslin are lightweight, usually used for lining or patterns by costumers; medium weight, used for hard covered flats or small drops; heavyweight, used for soft covered flats and large drops.
