    We had all but given up on sub 1.0 oz woven fabrics. Then along came MONOLITE...

    Ultralight woven fabrics are great for quilts and garments. But durability can take a nosedive for stressing applications like hammocks and bags.

    MONOLITE was developed to combat this problem. Constructed with a unique monofilament yarn and mesh weave, this fabric has the best durability we've EVER seen for the weight and by a wide margin.

    Used as a woven fabric, it's strong plus much more resistant to snagging and abrasion than fabrics of similar weight (e.g. 1.1 oz Ripstop Nylon).  

    As a mesh, it blows away traditional options like our 0.9 oz Noseeum. It's stronger, way more durable, and insanely breathable with a CFM over 1000 (full data sheet here). 

    Whether used as a fabric or mesh, it's stiffer with more structure than your typical ultralight fabric. This makes it a lot easier to sew.

    Lastly, as part of our larger green fabric initiative, 1.0 oz MONOLITE uses a more ECO friendly, C6 DWR (Durable Water Repellant). This gives the fabric water resistance while mitigating the environmental impact. If you're interested in reading more on topic of DWR, check out this article from Patagonia.com.

    Typical applications for MONOLITE include ultralight hammocks, bugnetting, tent screens, stuff sacks, lightweight bags, or garment lining material.

Ultralight Underquilt

This material is amazingly light and smooth to the touch. I made an ultralight underquilt for my hammock using Moroccan blue and white and I'd say it turned out amazing, not only in looks but in weight and feel. It is a bit slippery to sew with but this was my first MYOG project and I'm grateful that having no experience in sewing led to such a great product outcome. Thanks, RSBTR!

Thanks so much Keaton! To help with slippery fabrics, you can try and put a sheet of tissue paper or newspaper under the fabric to help create a little extra grip for the feed dogs. We'd love to see your UL UQ, be sure to tag us on social media!

That sounds like a project we have to see photos of! It also sounds like something we need to create ourselves! Here is a link if you'd like to share any photos
