A fine weave 70 denier textile with a silky-like look and feel. Pretty much impervious to dust without
proofing, although we utilise a variety with a light acrylic proofing rendering it absolutely dustproof.
This proofing also gives it some water-repellancy.
Superb for inside use, never use any nylon outdoors as it deteriorates in the ultra-violet; nor even
close to a window (think of net curtains) as glass filters out only UVB, whilst UVA gets through. See
Can be cool washed in a domestic washing machine, provided that no fabric conditioner is used.
We use this textile mostly for our In-Garage car covers
, & In-Garage motorcycle covers
(and car seat covers made to order only).
Another use could be dust sheets for just about any inside purpose.
Available off the roll in a width of 5 feet/1.5 metre, in a choice of 5 colours. Minimum 1 foot/300mm.

DEFINITION OF TERMS (click to show/hide definitions)
Denier (or D) can be roughly defined as the diameter (thickness) of the thread used to weave the textile,
and this approximation is acceptable for everyday use.
A textile can be defined as a fabric or cloth created by either weaving or knitting (also crocheting & felting)
with a thread, fibre or yarn.
Breathability is about water vapour evaporation, not breathing ! For a technical definition go to the BSI (British
Standards Institute) website; our textiles comply with
BS3424 (water vapour permeability).
We also use two plastic materials, for which thickness is defined in
microns. A micron
is 1/1000th of a millimetre; for comparison, a human hair is about 100 microns. For true English we also
show the approximate 1/1000th of an inch equivalent !
These plastics are 100% waterproof (ie completely impervious to water) and therefore not breathable.
