From Pattern Notes

Size: approximately 3 inches wide by 4 feet long.
Material specifications: No. 10 knit Cro-sheen, 100% mercerized cotton in white, cream or ecru. It’s bedspread cotton. (1 ‘ball/skein’ will make 2 - 4 ft long bandages.)

Please no dyes. South Maid D54 is the suggested brand, although other brand names like JP Coats, knit Cro Sheen etc, are welcome if they meet these specifications.

When completed, please wash the bandages, roll them and secure with a large safety pin. Put in plastic bag, remove air, and seal.
