    Looked like cotton, got to look again but it could read fabric of unknown origin. Which I guess could mean from a different country. I have found I cannot wear cotton from India or Malasia. Don't know why but cannot. I don't know if it is treated and dosent' wash out or what ! Just know I cannot where it. I also cannot wear polyester and other synthitics. so......

    The one Wal-Mart local to me which has fabric just decreased their fabric dept. to about 1 aisle (!!) They still have some of their $1 stuff. Since we're near L.A. apparently someone goes and just picks up bolts of good fabric. I got silk, linen, and lots of cottons OK for quilting. BUT, we'll see, now that their space is much less...

    When I worked in the fab dept we were told that all the $1 and $2 fab was unknown fab content-- guess legally there has too be something on the end of the bolt. My daughter is in management and apparently all stores with remodels coming up will lose their fabric and they will go to the $5 bolts. They were just putting ours out when I was there. We did have some pretty stuff, formal fabs and then some pretty UGLY, UGLY stuff. The also so had sweater fab.

    I'm so sad that they are doing this!! The reason I got the silk and linens was it said "unknown content" but felt right. I wish they would keep the cheap stuff! I also make costumes and it helps a lot when I can spend $1 or $2 a yard when I need 8 yards!

    I went to Wal-Martyesterdady and got some really rice fab on the $5 bolts--colored jean fab, suede brushed twill and aprint that feels like peach skin--all was 60" wide. The gal said they have 3 more pallets in the back. I went back tonight and about half was already gone. What's left is pretty thin and ugly!!
