Double gauze is a Japanese cotton speciality made of two very thin layers of open weave cotton gauze, which are fastened to each other with almost invisible stitches. This special double layer composition makes the fabric opaque.When worn and washed, air will fill the space between the two layers of fabric, resulting in a very soft and airy touch.
