Cotton lawn, otherwise known as lawn cloth is the common name for sheer semi translucent cotton. The term “lawn” refers to the characteristic crisp starched finish of the fabric. Early production of this cloth began in in the French city of Laon, and the fine crisp cotton was named after its city of its production.The fabric gained huge popularity for fashionwear, underwear and household décor. As the popularity grew over Europe then overseas, the term Laon cotton became known as Lawn cotton.
The smooth finish of the cotton is due to combing of the fibres during processing, producing a high thread count. This is then woven into a fine, semi translucent fabric which is still just as popular for fashionwear, underwear and interior design and displays.

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
