Why did you choose this?
Which canvas # is good for making canvas party bags?
BEST ANSWER: The #10 could work, but the #12 is a little lighter weight and may work better. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
Would #8 or #10 be the best for a heavy pastry cloth?
BEST ANSWER: I purchased # 12 for upholstery. The upholsterer said it was a bit difficult to work with. His commercial machine struggled with the sewing. That being said; I think # 10 would work for a pastry cloth if you were not doing a lot of sewing, just hems. # 8 if you were machine sewing the outlines for various guides" 9"round for pies; 8 X 14 for sweet rolls etc..
Whatever you decide on pre-wash or steam iron it to minimize shrinkage.
I hope this helps.
what is the difference between all the numbered cotton duck?
BEST ANSWER: The lower the number, the heavier the fabric. #1 is the heaviest at 27 Oz Per Square Yard, and #12 is the lightest at 11.5 Oz Per Square Yard.

Can i use this fabric to upolster ,?is it 100% cotton is it washable?
BEST ANSWER: it is heavy-duty and a nice weight with tight weave, and I think it could be used to upholster. However, it is 100% cotton and is totally washable, but really shrinks when washed/dried. I have cleaned off small spots. I have also washed in cold and hung to dry, which works for me. You might try a small sample and see how it does before making something.

The duck material I ordered from your company exceeded all expectations! I was able to repair a custom saddle cover from Spain that had suffered multiple holes from hungry field mice. Your material was perfect for mending the cover back to full service! Thank you so much!

I am very pleased with this fabric. It is the perfect weight I was hoping for outdoor deck rocking chairs,. Just finished cutting, still needs to be sewn, also making shams for large wicker chair pillows. Thank you for the great fabric, Judith

Great Quality and Weight
This cotton duck fabric is very nice. I have not made anything from the material yet but it there waiting for me when I can. I like it fine and am anxious to make some quality items real soon. I think it would make great aprons, bags, curtains, and many other items and I am sure they would last almost forever.
