|How to Use The Different Types of Burlap|
There are a few different kinds of burlap and the type you decide to use for decorating or for your crafting project might depend on how you plan to use it. There are basically 2 different types of burlap that vary in coarseness and texture.
Canvas – Canvas burlap has a slightly looser weave, is softer and works great for home decor. The looser weave is much better for things like curtains, table runners, lampshades, where you want some light to pass through and something that might be touched, sat on, etc.
Hawaiian Hemp – Hawaiian hemp burlap is woven much more tightly and is much coarser. It’s a little itchier. This tighter woven burlap is better for upholstery and crafts where you want sturdiness in the fabric, but doesn’t need to be soft. This would be great for decor, wall hangings, etc.
More Colors Available Now – With burlap becoming more popular as a fabric for decor and crafts, there are now more readily available color selections on the market. Some of the colors that can be purchased now are are black, blue, green, red and shades of off-white.
