I'm looking to match this Fabric (For the main Robe on the Cryptkeeper), I believe that it's a Cotton blend but I'm not sure...I do know that it is not Burlap or Canvas but the Weave is the size of Burlap, just softer...



I have looked all over town local to where I live... but have not come close to a match, I know many RPF'ers have great talent when it comes to finding things rare and old, so I'm hoping someone can help me find a match...

I need enough fabric to match the Robe the Cryptkeeper is wearing since I'm doing a complete Display. Any help will be appreciated!!!

I've seen this type of stuff numerous times at JoAnn Fabrics, I used some of it to make a Renaissance-type hood once. It's nice and soft and unravels easily. I still have some of it if you'd want me to send you a sample. Here's a shot of the hood.

I have JoAnn Fabrics near me but they didn't have a match, what is the name of the fabric you used?

It frays like a linen but it doesn't have the drape of one like I'm familiar with. I'd go more a denim or twill. Chances are good it was some kind of one-off unique fabric you'll never find again either way. It definitely frays like a natural fiber, or a natural blend.

Don't think it's monk's cloth. Looks to be a Linen to me as well. Possibly a linen blend to account for the anomalies.

I would say a lighter weight denim dyed to match would fray like you need it and be able to withstand weathering without falling apart completely.
