I'm about to begin making a BlackCat tarp, but I only have half the sil I need. I ordered the other half from Ed at Speer Hammocks, but I want to get started with the material I have in the meantime. So...

Is the dark gray 67" sil exactly 67" wide including the unusable frayed factory edges? If so I'll have to cut it down an inch or so on each side to eliminate the edge, so I need to take that into account now.

Anyone who has ordered this Sil from Ed, let me know! Thanks.
