Boat Blanket Gray 72" Fabric
Boat Blanket Fabric is an extremely durable, protective Spectropile fabric. This solution-dyed non-woven, plush polyester has a soft outer surface that acts like the loop side of Velcro®. Sew a strip of the hook side of Velcro to the Boat Blanket and fasten the sleeve around anything needing protection. Boat Blanket is easy to sew and is tough: UV and chemical resistant, and colorfast to withstand marine and outdoor environments.
Boat Blanket fabric is designed for use anywhere a soft, tough cover is required. There is a right and wrong side to this marine fabric, meaning that only the plush soft side should be exposed to the outside. Use Boat Blanket to make fender covers, anti-scorching dividers, pier piling covers, mooring and anchor line chafe guards, webbing sling pads and hiking strap covers.
Note: Boat Blanket is intended for use against gel coat and other hard-coated surfaces. Please use caution when using against painted or thin clear-coated surfaces.
Boat Blanket Cleaning Instructions: We recommend using Iosso Mold & Mildew Stain Remover to clean Boat Blanket material. Soak the material in the cleaner, and then rinse well and let dry.

Gray Boat Blanket

This material is easy to work with. Easy to Clean. I use it for fender covers, railing chafe guards, and creating a pad between zipper sliders and fiberglass. stitching is nearly invisible with a matching thread. It also works nicely between working surfaces and clear vinyl.
Good stuff, very heavy duty.

Much heavier than I thought. Make sure your sewing machine is able to sew this as it is very thick. My home machine was not up to the task, so I ended up buying an Ultrafeed.
A Great Cover Up ...

It was fast work making a few fender covers and chafe protectors because the fabric doesn't fray when cut (no seam binding required) and the hook side of Velcro sticks to the fuzzy side really well (one less thing to match up & sew in).
This heavy duty fabric is not stretchy so measure carefully. The outside is slightly fuzzy to the touch (sort of feels like an old wool blanket but this fabric content is not wool) and the inside is stiff, so like the description says, you don't want it to come in contact with delicate surfaces).
Only time will tell, but I don't think I will have to re-do these projects any time soon ... yay!

I used this fabric to make fender covers for our sailboat. Easy to work with and with the SailRite video it was a breeze. No fading, like with other fabrics I have used for this application. Really holds up to the elements!
I bought this to make fender covers but I found boat blanket also great for chafing protection for dock lines and shore power cables.
Does not scuff gelcoat.
