My rough calculations suggest that if you multiply g/sq.m by .03 you get oz/sq. yd. That would make your 35 g/sq.m fabric 1.05 oz/sq.yd, which isn't very heavy. Have you weighed a piece of it to confirm the weight that was reported to you?
Hey WV, no, I don't have a fine enough weight measuring device.

Should parachute material be heavier than 1.1 oz/sqyd ?
for those interested, WV's calculation is as follows
1 oz = 28.34 gram
1 yard = 0,9144 meter
1 square yard = 0.836 square meter
1 oz/sqyd = 28,34 gr/0,836 sqmtr = 33,899 gr/sqmtr
oz/sq.yd -> gr/sq.mtr => multiply by 33.9
gr/sq.mtr -> oz/sq.yd => divide by 33.9 (multiply by appr. 0.3)
Wow! I did all that? All I remember is that I got there somehow.
