Unbleached Drill Fabric 40''x25 yds. is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful cotton drill I bought this cotton drill as a lighter weight alternative to cotton duck, for a pressing board cover and some utility bags. I'd never used drill so I thought I'd try it out. I find it softer and lighter than duck, yet still quite sturdy. I did wash and dry (low temp) and it shrank like crazy, just like the duck- the drill was 4 yards and shrunk to 3-1/2 yards. I removed from dryer promptly and had no major wrinkling like some other reviewers experienced. Quality seems pretty good overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Finish for fabric painting I paint on this fabric to make espadrille shoes. There are two sides to the fabric; one with a Twill-like finish and on the back side , a smooth finish. I use the smooth side as fabric paints behave really well on it and the finished fabric designs have a soft hand, a bit more refined than a canvas. I have to cut my fabric on the grain and the grain of the fabric is not always straight so some pulling and wrangling the fabric into place is sometimes needed. Wait for it to go on sale and it is a good value with the minor flaws it has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scared at 1st but love it now! I have bought about 30 yards of this fabric. At first I thought I made a huge mistake after buying and washing it as it came out of the washer & dryer very wrinkled and it did shrink considerably. I tried ironing but it didn't seem to help it. After a lot of research I learned a few things. Overlock or serge the edges before washing. It can take more than one washing to remove all the chemicals used to process fabric and for shipping fabrics depending where it is made/shipped and how it is made. I now run THIS fabric through 4 full wash cycles (maybe that is overdoing it for some of you, play around with it) in warm water using my regular detergent and liquid fabric softener in 3 of the cycles. For the 2nd load I add 1/4 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle instead of the liquid fabric softener (advice from a friend). After the 4th wash it gets dried with a low tumble dry setting and removed immediately from the drier. I still have to iron it with a steam iron. If the steam iron does not take out as many wrinkles as I want it to, I spray it lightly with water and go over it with the steam iron repeating as need to get the look I want. It takes me about an hour (more or less) to iron 3-4 yards of this fabric, I watch tv while doing it. I use this fabric as curtain panels with a lace overlay that can be separated for cleaning. I love the drape, heaviness, and price (especially with a coupon or on sale) of this fabric. Sews beautifully! I hope this works for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misleading information this fabric is listed as "Made in the USA", however the store tells me it is labeled Made in India. I have compared the two and there is a definite difference between the fabric labeled Made in the USA and that labeled Made in India. Good fabric, just be careful that you get enough of the same fabric before you start your project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for stabilizing/interfacing Love this for backing bits and pieces and interfacing bags. Wash delicate, cold water and dry low. Tested a piece before sewing and worked fine. Overlock edge or serge before washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Interfacing Bags I tried Duck and then finally bought some of this at my local Joann Fabrics. It works perfectly for interfacing the bags I make. This will be my new go to for use as interfacing for my bags.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shrinks and wrinkles! So disappointed in this fabric! I bought several yards of it to make curtains for a kids closetthinking it was basic, washable fabric. I put in the wash and dried on low, 4 foot panel shrunk to 3 feet. The factory fold will not press out. The wrinkles make it look like it was pulled out of a dumpster.
