burn tested...


I bought this lovely little fabric quite some time ago.  When I bought it, it was listed as 100% cotton.  It doesn't look like a polished cotton -- in fact I thought it looked a little "polyestery"  I was determined to see it something "else" was in the fabric -- Although this test can't tell if Silk (or another natural fabric) is in there -- there are no "polyies in my Esters" -- It burnt cleanly.  

I bought some silk years back off of Ebay -- it wasn't silk -- polyester -- the burn test left a pile of plasticy goo that smelled awful (the chemical residue)...
