I bought half a yard to see what it's like to work with. Turns out it was a breeze!
I made 3 roll top bags and loved the process. It's such a treat to be able to so simply seal the stitching with the tape. The fact that it holds a crease was ideal for what I was doing and it ran through the machine so easily, holding its shape, not wanting to slip or pucker up. It's holds structure nicely so should be great for bike frame packs, backpacks and shoulder bags.
Hopefully I'll be able to work with it far more in future. I see the appeal and lists of projects this material would be ideal for are already far outweighing my current budget.
Thanks so much for the awesome review, we appreciate it! The 2.92 oz DCF is a dream to work with! We're excited to see your finished projects, be sure to tag us on social media!
My partner in crime (Juki) we love this DCF, my projects are coming nice and neat, I will be back for another roll soon.
Awesome, thanks so much R.M.! We'd love to see photos of your projects, be sure to tag us on social media!
We used it to make stingray proof socks. We hope they will work the next unpleasant encounter with those creatures
We would love to know! I don't think they have been stringray tested. If you have any photos, be sure to tag us on social media, we would love to see!
this is really pretty great to work with, think of all the benefits
1. it wont tear
2. its water proof
3. it wont fray (thats actually huge from a construction standpoint)
4. the weight is not bad
6. it wont stretch
7. the poly top layer is very uv resistant i assume
8. you can tape and sew it , i do both for super durability
9. i assume there is no need for a PFA DWR type coating on it??? no? yes?
2.92 oz dyneema, always great
