Oil Finish Shelter Cloth

Midweight, Versatile Waxed Canvas

We call our 11-oz. oil finish Shelter Cloth a midweight fabric, but most would consider it heavyweight. This tightly woven waxed cotton is named Shelter Cloth because it’s virtually identical to the tent fabric used by military troops in the mid-1900s. It requires no break-in period and is comfortable from the first day. Saturated with a paraffin wax and oil mixture under high heat, oil finish Shelter Cloth resists abrasion while repelling wind and water.
