I ordered 5 meters of unbleached muslin off the internet, and I want to have it sewn up so I can use it easily on my 4x4 frames. I was surprised at how transparent the material actually is, testing it today (with a tungsten 2k fresnel), it seemed like 1 layer barely diffused the beam, 3 seemed to be doing a better job of it. Right now I am contemplating having it done up with double layers, so I can have the 2fold and 4fold effect. How do you folks do it? When you use unbleached muslin, is it merely a single layer? I've attached a pic of the material, though I have to say, it looks less transparent in this picture than it is irl.

Doesn't look like cotton muslin to me.  If it is, it's a very light weight, open weave.  Beyond that no answer for you.  Usually it's only a single layer.

Thanks JD, I will look into heavier varieties. In person, so I don't get mixed up.
