A shopper on Nov 22, 2016

What is the weight if this fabric? I would like to make a duvet cover from it.
A shopper on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is 7 oz per square yard.
how thick is it?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's what I would call medium weight fabric. It was 100% cotton and it DID shrink a lot when washed and dried. So I decided not to wash and dry it. I made curtains for a boat that was turned into a Boat and Breakfast. The curtains turned out great.
Is this fabric made in the USA?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This ticking is not made in the USA.

A shopper on Aug 22, 2017

Would this fabric be good for dining room windows? Fabric to go to the floor, so if they shrink when dry cleaned, should I go longer in length?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think it depends on your dining room style. If it is very casual, country, distressed wood table, etc this fabric would be fine. Remember it IS old fashioned mattress ticking. It has to be lined. I used it for outdoor, in the woods table cloths. I washed it and it did shrink. Never dry cleaned it. I assume it won’t shrink when dry cleaned.
would this fabric be good to cover the seat of dining room chairs for a beach house?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think it would work well. I would probably spray the finished seats with Scotchguard.
Is it true blue or does it look more black? Not really wanting blue...
A shopper on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My particular dye lot (received 11/2017) is what I would call a classic blue stripe against an off white background. At the time, I also ordered a sample of Black Woven Ticking (S-WOVBLA).It is a true black stripe against a white background.

This next part wont help much but I also ordered a ACA Blue Ticking (product no. 171513). It is very dark navy stripe by comparison against an off white background. However, I cannot find that Item number now so they must be out of stock on no longer offering it.

Both fabrics seem good quality as does the sample.
can you tell be how many inches between each stripe? how many inches is the white/ cream colored stripe?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's the regular size of pillow ticking. About 1/4 inch
A shopper on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the stripes run up the roll vertically. For info on what horizontal repeat means, see this article:
I can't tell from looking online. Is the background color more natural or white?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: More natural but not too "brown."
is this a heavy fabric or can be used in quilt?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is a medium weight fabric that is typically used for upholstery purposes. It may not be suitable for a quilt but there's really nothing stopping you from using it in one if you wanted to! For this, we recommend ordering a sample first before committing to a larger order.
Will this fabric be good to cover an arm chair?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This is featherproof ticking which is heavier and stiffer than decorator fabric with the ticking pattern. You can find more information here:
Is this fabric stiff in texture? ?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It had the usual sizing when it arrived. I wanted it softer, so a wash took care of that - will be quilting with mine.
is this twill or woven?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would compare it to heavy jeans fabric.

Would this material be suitable for making an apron?
Angela W on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this fabric would work for an apron.
I have coonhound who digs into her beds and eventually tears the fabric and pulls out all the stuffing. I need a super strong fabric that would be almost impossible to tear. What would you recommend?
FAYE G on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest the heaviest cotton canvas duck you can find. The blue/white ticking is fairly sturdy but I doubt it would hold up to your dog’s digging
Is this wide enough for a queen duvet?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is only 47" wide. You'd need to attach a few panels together for a queen duvet.

Paula L on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We recommend pre-washing, yes.
How much do I need for two large heirloom down pillows?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: What size are they? I would guess 2 yards would be fine, but I can't say for certain without the pillow size.
Is this featherproof like the 32" version also on this site?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2017

Great choice!
Exactly what I was looking for. The color is more of a cream than stark white and the stripe is a dark navy. I used this fabric to make a box seat cushion cover for the kitchen.

REAL ticking
Finally found real ticking! Worked wonderfully for the vintage look mattresses I wanted for an old daybed. Nice price too! Wish it was available in a rust colored stripe for curtains I want to make. Might not drape well but would insulate well.
The tufting took 2 people.
I just felt the bolsters finished it off.
Don't think I will cover it.  Like the campy look in my movie poster room.
Even one of my cats like it!  Maybe not a good thing.....

soft once washed
This fabric is slightly thinner than the 32 inch and the navy stripe is not quite as dark. The stripe is also slightly wider. That being said...once washed and dried it felt soft and the weave actually tightened up so looked more robust. I would not order it again though as too much work to make it look good.
