Canvas Fabric
Modern canvas, often referred to as cotton duck, is usually made of cotton. It differs from other heavy cotton fabrics, such as denim, in being a plain weave rather than twill weave.  (Denim jeans are usually a twill weave.)  Canvas comes in two basic types: plain and duck. The threads in duck canvas are more tightly woven.


A numbering system is used to describe the various weights of duck cloth, based on the weight of a 36x22-inch piece. Weights below 19 ounces are called numbered duck; those above 19 ounces are called naught duck.


Numbered duck is nominally made in weights from 2 to 12 in even numbers. (Odd numbers 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 are no longer used.) Some typical uses of various weights are:

  • #2: hatch paulins, flooring
  • #4: sea bags
  • #6: large boat covers
  • #8: satchels, duffel bags, director's chairs
  • #10: shower curtains, tents, outdoor accent pillows
  • #12: light bags, clothing

Many heavier cotton ducks are treated with a durable water repellent finish to help them shed water. White and natural cotton duck can be bleached if heavily soiled. Natural cotton duck also takes dye readily.

Note that you want to make sure your cotton duck has been treated for fire resistance before using it in a tent, teepee or other habitat structure.
