    I haven't pegged down the price yet, but it will be reasonable and definitely lower than the $9.50 /yd price point of the original Membrane sil. Sold by the whole yd.

    Supply and demand aside, it takes much longer to weave the fine denier fabrics like 10D. Then more care and attention in the dying and finishing process.
