Hi! I've been working on my Nihilus for a while, and my work has hinder my progress in a huge way. Finally going to continue again,and I got a question regarding a new addition to the CRL. Can someone please help me clarify, what is a natural weave? Mine is made from wool, the weave to me looks natural. But is there any criteria for natural weave?

I've Googled and I think I may found an answer for this. A natural weave would be like this:

My wool does look a bit like this.

That would be a great example of a natural weave. Linens are great choices for fabrics with a natural weave, and the weight gives them a nice drape. By far my favorite fabric to work with :)

I used raw black silk for the main part of my costume, and a cotton fabric for the sleeves.
