DUCK CLOTH / CANVAS WEAVE

fabric description
Often called Duck Cloth and many times confused with canvas. The term “Duck” often refers to a fabric (similar to canvas) that is tough enough for workwear or military grade applications and is generally to mean nine ounces or (up to twenty).The name originated from the word “doek”, which was the linen canvas that Dutch sailors in the Navy used for their pants and white outerwear. It is a tightly woven fabric with 2 thick yarns together in the warp and a single yarn in the weft, resulting in a thick cotton weave that is resistant to the penetration of wind and water. Duck is incredibly durable, so tough in fact that it was often used as sailcloth during more traditional times. Because of it’s very tight weave it is highly resistant to tearing. Our “peach finish” Duck has a smooth, slightly fuzzy surface on one side. because of the high thread count, it can be stiff at first, but after several washes will soften up.
