  • Duck canvas fabric naming system:  There are many types of cotton fabrics. They are known by names that are historically connected to them like “Army”, “Numbered”, “Belting”, “Sail”, etc.
    • Single Filled Duck Canvas Fabric: Generally light-weight, loosely woven, oxford weave cotton duck canvas, made from non-plied single yarns. The more common SF ducks weigh 7, 10 and 12 oz/square yard.
    • Numbered Duck Canvas Fabric: Heavier plain weave fabric, made with plied yarns, weighing 12 to 32 oz/square yard. #1 being 32 oz/square yard and #12 being 12 oz/square yard.  This cotton duck canvas is tight, firm cotton canvas ranging from 36″ to 144″ in width.  This is also called wide duck and the weights (numbering system) are on the inverse scale.  The weight of the fabric can be determined by subtracting the duck number from 19.  A number 8 cotton duck canvas will weigh (19-8)= 11 oz per lineal yard of 22″ width fabric.  To get the ounce per square yard, you have to prorate it to 36″ width since 1 square yard is 36″x36″.  11 oz per lineal yard(22″) is the same as 18 oz/sq. yd.  A little confusing, but that’s how he original numbering system was invented.
    • Army Duck Canvas Fabric: 10 oz & 15 oz. plain weave canvas, generally made with two ply yarns. The yarns are finer than the numbered or SF ducks and the weave tighter.  Army cotton duck cloth is usually firmer than single filled ducks.  Originally used for army tents and clothes, this versatile cotton duck cloth is used in a variety of applications.

With a variety of colors, our collection of cotton duck cloth is perfect to be used in various applications like tents, sandbags, tool bags, archery targets, bed rolls, slings and much more.
