There is a bit of a mystery as to where this fabric came from. My mom has never ever been to Europe, her grandparents came from England and Scotland, but I think Hawaii is the only place she's been outside of the US and Canada. And yet this piece of fabric was priced in pounds. So strange. With it being a remnant and it does have a mark along the selvage, it wouldn't have been a gift from a visiting relative. Someone must have given this to her at some point.
I was thinking it would be cotton blend of some sort. Although it's soft, it did feel a little like there was something not quite natural fibre to it. It had creases after being folded up so long and ironed well. I thought I'd do a burn test. It just... melted. No black beads, most of it stayed the colour of the fabric. Once cool it's hard and will snap. Parts did seem to go a little grey rather than the blue of the fabric. I wish I could tell you about the smell but my sinuses are still uncooperative thanks to this never ending cold. So is it nylon? Acetate? I cut the snipped from the marked area at the selvage so the fabric looks a little darker here.
