Made of Vermont cheddar!
No really, what is cheesecloth? If you're looking here, you must have a general idea that it's a loose weave gauze like cotton cloth used for polishing, home use, food prep, paint finish work, or the like. The looseness of the weave determines the usage. Cheesecloth is a woven item. The thread count is usually referred to as THE GRADE.
Have you ever stayed at a fancy hotel that advertises 500-count Egyptian bed sheets? You know what that means? It's the count per square inch of threads. Cheesecloth is the same. A low count cheesecloth would be 20/12. A high count? 44/36.
Different jobs have different needs. If you are polishing silver or metals, low count works great. If you are straining liquids, a higher count is much better for the task.
If you have critical industrial needs, we offer a super high end NYLON ORGANDY which is the best of the best and the finest of the weaves, so much so that do you know we supply it to the US Navy for paint straining? It's expensive but it's THE right tool for THAT task.
Do you know that low count cheesecloth sales soar around Halloween? One word: mummies!
