    Never heard of silpoly. A Google search for "silicone impregnated polyester" turned up Spinn-Tex, I know it's nothing like that.

    I know OWF and maybe Quest Outfitters carry green sil. It may be a brighter green than you are looking for, but it's still green.

    I found some brown Sil-Nylonish material at a WalMart up here in Ontario. Bought a yard for a dollar. Took it home, put a big wad of TP in the middle, bundled it up into a bag, and dunked it in a tub of water for about 15 seconds. Pulled it out, and.....TP was soaked through.

    Just because it looks like Sil-NYlon, doesn't mean it is.

    interesting method... usually people cinch it like a bucket and fill with water to see if it drips.
