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. Also from the Dutch word “Doek” meaning a “heavy cotton cloth”. The Number Ducks are also known as “Double Fill” ducks.
The lightest (?) “heavy” duty cloth in the # Duck family. #12 Duck has a smooth texture and a fairly tight weave. We can do custom dyeing and finishing on the #12 Duck in 48″ – 72″ widths. When in doubt, go with a # 12 Duck. You can’t go wrong! Industries that use our #12 Duck: Tote bags, Artist Canvas, Food & Baking (as conveyor belt), Promotional products, Lamination, Seat Covers, Carpet backing, Filter bags, and more.
If the 10 Oz. Single Fill Duck is the bread of our business, then #10 Duck is the butter! We simply cannot keep enough. The fabric is available in widths ranging from 36″ – 144″. We also have a dyed stock program “Raphael” (Dyed in the USA) in this #10 Duck in colors.

The most preferred fabric for tote bags by all the top designers. A super-tuff fabric. With a 5-plied yarn on the warp & the fill, the fabric has superior strength.

We probably are the last of the dinosaurs that still carry this fabric in stock. Woven on shuttle looms with closed selvedge, this fabric is used to make saddler pannier bags. Rough and tough!
