Summer? What Summer! Anyone need waterproof fabrics?

Do you need waterproof fabrics? I heard something on the radio the other day and I thought ‘what a good question’......., ‘is it possible there is a place where it rains all the time?’ The answer unsur­pri­singly was no but I know how this caller must have been feeling; maybe they were from down the road. Pendle is a beautiful part of the world but it ain’t half wet, crikey I feel submerged. You could say that conver­sations about the weather are all consuming in our office, more often than not it’s about managing the outside drying of our washing and the lack of such a pleasure. Maybe I could use this fabric and build a massive poly tunnel?

Or maybe not as these new waterproof fabrics are very fine lightweight polyester with a breathable coating applied to one side making it a very pliable, soft cloth. It you want to cover a sleeping bag or repair an old down jacket and you want it to be waterproof, then this is the cloth to do it with. Thay are 60” (152 cm) wide, £5.00 per metre and it comes in;


 a) dark olive waterproof fabric  b) cerise waterproof fabric
 c) black waterproof fabric  d) bright apple green waterproof fabric
 e) air force blue waterproof fabric  f) red waterproof fabric
