DIY cheesecloth comparison test - Tacoma Newborn Baby Photographer | Dawn Rocks Photography

I have been wanting to dye my own cheesecloth for sometime so I decided to buy a few different grades and test the quality. 

 The far left is the grade 10 cheesecloth that you can typically find at Walmart, Craft Stores, etc. As you can see its much more gauze like and does not hold up as well.

 The middle is the 50 grade cheesecloth. It is a huge different from the 10 and I would be happy to use this as a wrap. Much thicker, holds up better.

 This is 90 grade cheesecloth. Although the 50 was good and I would use this in most cases to make wraps for the look I am drawn to. I like the thicker more fabric type feel and thickness to the 90 grade cheesecloth.

For me personally, I will avoid using the 10 grade again unless there was a specific look I was trying to achieve. Anything from the 50 and up works well and will look good in my opinion if you are at DIY cheesecloth wraps. Links to different grade cheesecloths on amazon can be found below.
