This is a heavy duty actual military issue cotton canvas fabric that is ideal for making seat covers, tops and other canvas items for vintage military vehicles. Its is a 21oz (#6 weight) duck canvas that is dyed Olive Drab #7 and is factory treated for water resistance and mildew resistance. The canvas is 5'(60") wide and we sell it by the yard (a yard is 3' or 36"). So if you order one you get a piece that is 3'x5', 2 gets a piece that is 6'x5', 3 gets a piece that is 9'x5' and on.
We normally do not cut single sections larger than 5 yards, so if you order 9 yards you will get a 5 yard and a 4 yard section. This is because as the sizes get larger it gets very difficult to manage folding it into a size that can be economically mailed.
If you need a special cut of a continuous run longer than 5 yards/ 15 feet please contact us directly. We can do it, but will have to make a special arrangement to bill it direct and get the shipping estimate correct.
