#12 Natural Cotton Duck Fabric is the thinnest of the numbered ducks at 11.5 ounces per square yard, but it’s double-filled tight weave makes it very durable. It’s tough, yet not too hard on the needle and sewing machine. It has a wide range of uses, including tote bags, reusable grocery bags, tarps, protective covers, and slip covers. The natural color and texture make it great for painting on or embellishing with stamps and monograms.

ive beed researching on the perfect yet affordable slipcover fabric. and this one is the best based on online reviews
Susana a on Apr 17, 2018
#12 natural cotton duck fabric was a good choice for me as a painter. I wanted canvas that was between 10 - 12 oz in weight because this was a recommended weight for painters. I am stretching canvas so this was a good choice for me. I will prime the canvas myself after I stretch it. This will be an added cost but I think the stretching process will go better if I don't get pre-primed canvas.

Is this fabric machine washable and the right duck for slipcovers?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will work for slipcovers. It can be washed but expect some shrinkage the first time washing it.
Does this have any chemicals used in making the fabric or anything added like flame retardant?
Kristina C on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This fabric is not flame retardant. It would need a special finish added to it. If you are interested in having a custom flame retardant finish added, please contact our customer service at

I would like to make a washable slipcover for a dog bed...what number duck would you recommend?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This #12 duck would work well. The #10 is another option that's slightly thicker. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project. Also keep in mind that this cotton duck will shrink when washed, so make sure to pre-wash it.
Two questions, is this dyable? I would like to dye it a rich, burgundy.

Secondly, is this an appropriate weight for a rucksack? I'm wanting to make a heavy duty canvas and leather rucksack that will hopefully last a lifetime. Can you suggest the weight for that please?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this canvas is dyable. This weight or slightly heavier weights would work well. We suggest getting a sample of this and a couple others, like #10 and #8, to see which weight you like the best.

Would #12 Duck be to heavy for straight grommet top drape panels? My goal is privacy.
A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The #12 duck may be a bit too heavy and stiff. The 10 oz or 7 oz single fill ducks would work better. The 7 oz is more flexible and would drape best. It lets more light in but would still provide privacy. The 10 oz is a little heavier with a tighter weave. We suggest ordering samples if you want to see them yourself and compare.

is this fabric similar to cotton drill fabric? is it very heavy and thick?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main difference between cotton drill and cotton duck is the weave. Duck has a plain weave and drill has a twill weave that creates diagonal lines. Twill weaves are generally more durable than plain weaves, but this cotton duck is still very durable. As for the weight, our #1 cotton duck is very thick and heavy and #12 is fairly lightweight. The lower the number, the heavier and thicker it is. We suggest ordering samples to find the weight that you want.
Is this fabric soft enough to use for decorator throw pillows..and can you use fabric paint on it?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It might soften up if you pre-washed it, but its a pretty heavy fabic. I guess it would matter what kind of look you were going for. I think it would be ok for for pillows. I haven't painted on this particular fabric, but if you buy the fabric medium to mix in with your paint (available with the acrylic paints in most craft stores) you should be fine. I have painted table cloths on cotton duct fabric and it washes beautifully.
