Coutil is used mostly in Corsetry. Its densely packed herringbone weave allows for a fabric of supreme strength and minimal stretch. Despite its density it is smooth against the skin. It is very strong and duarable and a pleasure to work with. You can use it for giving strength and stability to all manner of projects, as a stiffener in a sun hat brim where you want some give. For collars and cuffs where you want firmness, to interline a fabric basket to hold its shape, Cushion inners or even mattress covers! Putty coloured.
