POLYESTER uncoated * 6 oz. Oxford weave * 66" wide
LAST ROLL! We can not get more of this.
While looking for new fabrics I sent samples out to a mills and I found this fabric, which looks almost identical to the "8 oz." we have sold for years. The weave is slightly coarser, but that is only visible if you put the two side beside each other, The weave is much looser. I would recommend using the Double Corded stitch for best results.
DRAWBACKS - We have sold a good bit of this and the feedback we are receiving is the fabric is a little hard to seal because of the loose weave. After 3 coats of paint there are pin holes so it is taking extra coats to seal the weave.
This fabric was made for a client and it did not meet their specifications. The yarn was mislabeled and is a high shrinkage and they specified a low shrinkage yarn. There is a large but limited supply of this fabric. I got a great deal on it and I am passing that savings on to you!
Uncoated Polyester will also accept just about any finish unlike nylon. Paint, polyurethane, varnishes, etc. Even water based products.
I recommend ordering 1 foot longer than your boat length. On wide boats such as the MessAbouts, order 2 extra feet.
SOLD BY THE FOOT
Even though we have had no reports of any problems with any coating on this fabric, keep in mind that you should alwasy test andy coating before applying it on the finished boat.
