  • A short history of floorcloth making along with a few books written on the subject

Tip: What are numbered ducks? Numbered ducks identify canvas that uses at least a 2 ply system on the warp and filling and whose weight is identified by a system of numbers. For instance per square yard, #12 is about 11.5 oz.; #10 is about 14.5 oz.; #8 is about 17.55 oz, and so on. As the numbers go up the weight goes down.

Tip: When priming canvas that has not been stretched on a frame or another device the length will shrink about 10%. The width will shrink very little.
