It's very pretty. If you DO snag some, can you send me a tiny swatch? (1inche by 1 inch)?I can compare it with a hunk of wool I've laying around. If mine is wool gauze, I can tell you what it'll do in the washer, and how it'd drap. Sound ok?
I try to not wear wool agaisnt the skin unless I've lined it with china silk. Otherwise I scratch as if I've fleas. <skritch skritch, skritch> Arghhhh. <twitch twitch> >
Watch your thoughts; they become words. words become actions, actions become habits, habits, become character. Your character becomes your destiny. What will your destiny be?

Sorry, I don't have any experience with wool gauze.
It's pretty and probably has a good texture. But since it's gauze, it still may need to be lined to give it the right weight to feel right. But since the site says, 'Suitable for Suits, Slacks, & Jackets' it probably isn't too thin.

The other Jedi tunics all seem to be silk, so I would expect Obi-Wan's in TPM to be silk, too. Obi-Wan's tunic in ANH was silk, the very first one, I wonder if that inspired the costume designer to just go with silk tunics and wool robes, because of what was used in the OT?

Osnaburg gets softer with washing, will shrink w/ first washing, so prewash and dry on hot before cutting, the perm press treated feels the same as the untreated after washing, but comes out of the dryer w/ less wrinkle, easy sewing and drapes well, also very good budget wise. I'm thinking of doing a tunic in crinkle gauze foe CVI.

Muslin will wrinkle like mad. You'll be forever ironing a tunic made with muslin. And if you get wool gauze you should triple pre-wash in cold water just to make sure you get all the shrinkage out of it. I've had issues with loose weave wools.
