As Mary Pat has already stated, Tom Daniels is selling Tyvek as a
fundraiser in custom lengths. If he runs out, I laways have some around
If that fails, try driving by a local jobsite where they have just
wrapped a house. There are usually enough scraps laying aroung to sew a
couple of tents out of.
That's right, I said sew tents...as in it can be sewn into tents, clothing,
packs, kites, etc. Have fun and let me know if you need some.
