Why did you choose this?
Is this canvas completely chemical free?
What does single filled flat duck mean and what are the implications of undyed fabric? Thnx!
BEST ANSWER: Single fill ducks only have 1 yarn in the weft as opposed to numbered ducks which have 2 in the weft. This fabric is unfinished and undyed after being woven. In this state, it is ideal to be painted, dyed, finished, etc. however you want.
I'm looking to make a tent for the bed of my truck, is this a good fabric for that use?
BEST ANSWER: This is plenty sturdy to make a tent out of. I don't think it would repel water though unless you treated it. You might be better off getting fabric that has already been treated for this purpose if you are camping during the rainy season.
can this be used as rugs?
BEST ANSWER: Our thickest canvas, which is currently the #4 Natural Cotton Duck, would be the best option, but I don't know what sort of thickness you're looking for. We recommend ordering a sample to see if it will work for your project.
Is this good for gesso/oil paintings?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this canvas can be used for paintings. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it is the thickness that you want. We also have primed canvases if you're interested.
Would this be a good choice for reupholstering a reading Chair?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's a good weight. It does have a bit of a rough texture because it is raw canvas, but washing it will soften it up. Just keep in mind that washing will also make it shrink. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
What is the best duck cloth to cover dining room chair seats? I'm confused by all the products available.
BEST ANSWER: We have a canvas product guide (cotton duck is the same thing as canvas) that may help: www.onlinefabricstore.net/makersmill/canvas-fabric/
The 12 oz, the 10 oz, or the #12 would all work. The difference between the numbered ducks and ducks with weights in ounces is explained in the guide. If you are unsure, we recommend ordering samples.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a raw, unprimed canvas.
Good weight for making a tent?
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this canvas to use for oil painting and it stretches
nice and tight when primed. I would not think it to be useful for
a tent because of its high cotton content; the first rain and it would shrink.
I would think some sort of water proof canvas would work better for a tent.
Does it shrink alot?
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It shrank considerably. I can't remember how much but I want to say around 6 inches per yard. It was a very nice weight and washed well but even though i cut overages, it came out smaller than I hoped. If you can, wash before you cut. I had too much yardage to do that but it was still workable for my project. Hope that helps you out!

BEST ANSWER: We think it would be a good weight, but recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for you.

Heavy weight sturdy canvas
This fabric is great for many utilitarian purposes. I used it as a support layer in corset making and period bodices but would also have easily worked to cover my cutting tables and ironing tables or any number of other uses - duffle bags, upholstery. Very stiff. Not soft like coutil so a different sort of bodice treatment when desired.

This Duck is no quack
My purchase: 60" Single Fill 12 Oz Duck Fabric. In fact, it's an excellent Duck. I use it for stretched canvas to paint on with acrylic colors. Sorry I can't send a photo, but it is superb for this use. Perhaps I shouldn't reveal this, but it's priced much better than for the exact same fabric from an art supply source. I intend to repeat the purchase when (if) I run out.
