Number Duck: Tight, firm, plain woven with plied yarns in warp & fill. Widths range from 22″ to 144″ and weights ranging from 7 to 32 oz. per sq.yard. Higher the number, lower the weight and vice versa. Name derived from a trademark of a duck stenciled on a sailcloth imported from England and Scotland in the 1800’s.
