Hey everyone,
I have a little dilemma
I got some fabric in NYC a few months ago and I didn't make note of what type of fabric it was from the bolt, so I have no idea what it is.
I know its suiting because that is what I was shopping for but I can't remember if it was tropical wool or a rayon blend or what.
So my question is, can anyone guide me on how you go about figuring out what you are dealing with in terms of type of fabric?

Toy, have you tried a burn test?
