Why did you choose this?
I'm sorry, but how do I know what the thickness is? Can you explain what the 70 means, please?
BEST ANSWER: Denier is a unit of measurement that describes the thickness of the threads or filaments used in the fabric. Generally, the higher the denier, the thicker and more durable the fabric. Compared to other nylon fabrics with deniers such as 210, 420, or 1000, 70 denier ripstop is lightweight. Despite being thin, ripstop is still a durable fabric. We suggest ordering a sample if you want to see the thickness.
what is the width of this?
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is approximately 59/60" wide.
Black 70 Denier FR/UV Nylon Ripstop Fabric is water repellent, but is it water proof?
BEST ANSWER: We cannot guarantee a fabric to be waterproof if it is labeled as water repellent. You could try adding a treatment like Never Wet to it to add to the water repellency, but please be aware that it may affect the look and feel of the fabric.
Looking for durable black fabric to create an inside pocket for my Gortex Raincoat. Will mostly use it for easy access to my iPhone & wallet. Would this be a good fabric or do you recommend something else?
BEST ANSWER: I used the fabric for a liner for our Fire Department SCBA masks. It is **tough** so should last a very long time. It has a nice drape and hand and should be perfect for a durable inside pocket for the use you describe. Easy to sew on a home machine (I used my commercial machine).
Would this work as a car soft top? If not what would you recommend instead?
What's the durability?
BEST ANSWER: The durability is great!
I used this fabric for patches on the knees of jeans that had to be FR.
Is this blackout? If I was to add the white 70 denier nylon ripstop as a layer on top of it, do you think it would be close to blackout?
BEST ANSWER: When I hold this fabric up to a bright light I can dimly see the light, so I would call it dark, not blackout. More than one layer would help.
Do you sell any recycled 70 denier ripstop?
BEST ANSWER: None of our ripstop is specified as recycled.
Would this fabric work for a jacket?
BEST ANSWER: For a windbreaker or poncho, yes.
Is this machine washable ?
BEST ANSWER: We recommend dry clean only for this fabric.
How many yards of fabric do I need to make a long coat?
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the size you're making. For a small/medium size, 3 yards should be fine. For a large size, 4 yards.
