    20 yds. Spinntex fabric

    I purchased 20 yards of Gray Spinn (it has a slight greeen-ish cast to it) to make some tarps from Sailmakers Supply at $11.62/yd plus shipping, but decided to go another way. I have 20 yards on a continuous roll for sale, $210 shipped. This sale is for the whole roll, enough to make two very large tarps, and I will not split into smaller yards. Whoever buys it can deal with that.

    Can we assume this is .75 oz Spinnaker? Have you tested the waterproofness? I am going to ask some friends if they might like to split this among us. We range between VA and MA. Are you anywhere near us?

    It is the .75 oz. Spinn. It is waterproof, the reason it is being sold is because I decided to go Cuben for my tarps and I need to recoup some of the cost to help pay for the cuben. I just cut a 6x6 square off one corner to test (since it was asked,) so I have to say it is a 20 yd. roll with a 6x6 square off one corner.

    Orwigsburg is very close to some (non-hammocking) friends. I stop by a few times per year. Do you want all of the roll, or some of it? My hammocking friends have some interest in some of the spinn, but none of us can use this quantity.

    No sweat-The friends are going to pass. I have too many toys and too many projects right now, anyway'

    Um, er, I was not going to post Pottsville to the entire world, OneTrack. Now I don't have to worry about being tactful, as you just announced yourself as a friend. Brave of you! <w>
