    Great quilt fabric
    I agree that they're really ugly pants; probably why they'd never been worn.

    Back in the days (late 70s-early 80s) before I developed a stash large enough to open a store, I often stopped at yard sales and bought woven cotton shirts, dresses and skirts.
    Still using some of what's left in scrap quilts.

    I take a piece of the fabric and lite it with a match, over the sink, and if it melts it has polyester or nylon in it, if it just burns, it is cotton...at least that is what a quilt teacher told us in a class once upon a time. It is amazing how quickly the poly will melt...scary!

    I did not know how to test for cotton. Thanks for the info. Now the trick will be to remember the tip.
