A multipurpose cloth, the Fuwara Sheep muslin is 100% cotton and made with six layers of Japanese gauze. Designed to rumple and get softer and fluffier with each wash, the fabric is stitched with a pattern of grazing sheep that hold the inner extra absorbent layers together. Each cloth is also trimmed with tiny stripes. We particularly love the odd “black sheep” in the pattern, and how truly useful this cute design is. It’s ideal for mopping brows, drying hands and wiping up small spills.
We are huge fans of Japanese gauze. Made of super thin layers of cotton, stitched together to trap air, it's warm but breathable, hygienic and absorbent, and it gets softer and cozier with each wash. Fuwara items are made by Nakamori Gauze in Mikawa, Aichi Prefecture, the birthplace of Japan’s cotton textile industry, and are woven and stitched together using techniques that date back to the Edo Period. Their outer layers are finely woven gauze, the inner ones of a thicker, airy weave an each item is pre-washed in mineral water derived from nearby Mount Ishizuchi to ensure softness. They may rumple and shrink a little with washing, but that just adds to their beauty as they become even fluffier with use.
