    Olive 1.1 Water Repellent

    I found this http://cgi.ebay.com/New-8-Yd-Olive-G...QQcmdZViewItem on ebay today if anyone is interested. I don't think it's sil, but may be good for something, especially since olive can be hard to come by.

    Yeah that's kinda expensive if it's DWR and not sil. It kinda looks like sil from the picture. Olive is kinda rare, especially in sil.

    EDIT:

    Assuming the bid doesn't go up any more it's not as expensive as I first thought @ about 4.40 a yard shipping included. You have to watch Ebay. Sometimes people will inadvertently advertise something as one thing and you get another, especially when it comes to fabrics.

    My bet is that it was bought at the WalMart $1 bin and he's trying to make a few bucks off it. A few months ago I was lucky enough to find some dark OD green at WalMart. It looks about the same.

    Looks just like the 1.1oz DWR I've found. He mentions it's calendared and "WR", which I assume means water resistant as in DWR. My guess - it's not sil.

    I've don't recall EVER seeing 1.1 oz OD sil but I might trade my car for some.
