Why did you choose this?
Would this work for a sofa slip cover?
BEST ANSWER: It will cover well and the fabric is strong enough but it is a little rough to sit on. I used it to reupholster a chair but did not use it for the seat and back...
Good morning, if I use this to cover a chair, will the material be soft enough?
BEST ANSWER: I would only suggest it for the back of a chair, since it is a more rustic fabric and it sheds a lot. It wouldn't be ideal for an entire chair.
Is this burlap treated with any chemicals?
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is not treated. The only "chemical" in question would be the oil that is used to lubricate the weaving machines.
Is this coated?
BEST ANSWER: No it's not. But it is VERY thick material.
Is the fabric comfortable and soft or scratchy to the touch?
BEST ANSWER: I used this fabric for the interior springed seat frames of a patio sofa and chair, replacing original burlap from mid 1960’s which only became damaged due to exposure to water, rusting framework and rot. Had the furniture not been exposed to water, I believe the original fabric would still be fine. With the new burlap, the furniture is good as new. I chose heavy duck canvas for the cushion upholstery. As far as burlap’s go, it’s pretty soft and may soften up more with use. But it is scratchy by nature. I would only use as upholstery for back and side areas.
Is this item still available?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we have this product in stock.
Is the Sagless Burlap Fabric available in other colors? Thank you:)
BEST ANSWER: This is the only color we offer in sagless burlap.
Can I use this for a backing of stationary, I would like to glue card stock onto this? When you cut it, does it fray?
BEST ANSWER: It won't fray as much as regular burlap, but it will still fray. We recommend ordering a sample to see if it will work for your project.
Is this Sagless Burlap a product you always carry?
Can it be cleaned does anyone know? Thank you!
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do carry this product regularly. Burlap should be hand washed with cold water and a small amount of gentle detergent. Do not leave in water to soak. Rinse the fabric well and leave it to dry flat between two towels. For stains, blot the burlap (do not scrub or rub) with a wet sponge, blot up the water with a towel immediately after.
I AM MAKING DECORATOR PILLOWS ON WHICH I HAND-STITCH DESIGNS OR HOOK ON, WILL THIS WORK?
BEST ANSWER: This is a very heavy, tightly woven natural burlap. This may be what you're looking for, but if not, we would suggest sultana burlap. It has the tightest weave other than sagless burlap. It is also a more refined burlap that is great for decor applications. It's dyed, finished, and sanitized to remove natural oils and odor. It also comes in many colors! We suggest ordering samples to see which would work best for you. www.onlinefabricstore.net/product-group-burlap.aspx?product=color-burlap&product_sub_group=sultana-burlap
I would like to use this for a decorative window treatment. would this be workable?
Are there special needles required when sewing this type of burlap?
I used this to upholster the outsides of a wing chair. I was pleased with the weight and structure of this fabric. I would use again for upholstery. It's rough for the insides, but perfect for the outsides

Sofa and chair interior spring seat frames
I replaced old (mid 1960’s) sagless burlap damaged by water, rust and rot with this. It was easy to work with and functions perfectly. It covers heavy metal wire frame that is surrounded with attached springs that hold it to the furniture frame and support the seat cushions and all who sit there. Good as new! I’m so pleased with this product.
