How many yards do I need I want it for tablecloth my table 66x120?
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how much you want it to overhang on the sides. (A drop of about 30 inches would make it go to the floor.) No matter what, you're going to have to seam at least 2 pieces together because the width of this fabric is 46-48 inches. This would give you a drop of about 14 inches on all sides and you would need 9 yards. If you want more overhang, you could sew 3 pieces together and you would need 15 yards.
We also carry a 58-60 inch wide black burlap that has a tighter weave than this burlap. Sewing 2 pieces together would give you about a 26 inch drop. You would need 10 yards in this case.
Yet another option is to sew pieces together so the seams go across the table the short way instead of the long way. The amount of yards needed would vary based on the desired overhang.
How many yards do I need I want it for a tablecloth 72x120?
BEST ANSWER: You would need to seam together two pieces to get the 72 inch width. You would need 3.5 yards for the length of each piece, so that's a total of 7 yards.
When pieces need to be sewn together, you could simply sew the 2 pieces together, which would put the seam in the middle. To avoid this, many people like to have one full panel in the middle and 2 smaller panels of equal size on the left and right. But this is just a matter of personal preference!
How thick is this fabric?
BEST ANSWER: I found it to be as expected, so I guess the word should be average. Good color. Burlap is a pretty thick fabric, I wouldn't make clothing out of it but maybe some element of a costume.
What is cost for 6ft wide by 60 ft long?

How wide can you order?
BEST ANSWER: We carry a 59/60 inch wide black burlap.

Is this material flame retardant?
I'm looking to create a canopy ceiling for my basement recording studio. The room is roughly 14x20. I'll want extra size so it can "billow" a bit from joist to joist. Assuming I wanted roughly 400 sq feet, how would the fabric be shipped? What would be the best way to order in terms of size / quantity? Thank you!
BEST ANSWER: On a roll or pallet.
