Top Notch® 11.5 is the same fabric as Top Notch 9 but utilizes a higher denier yarn to create a heavier fabric designed for industrial applications or where a heavy fabric is acceptable. It is 100% solution-dyed polyester with a fluorocarbon finish, creating a fabric that is breathable, reversible and water repellent. The solution-dyed polyester fabric won't fade and provides superior strength compared to other solution-dyed fabrics. Top Notch 11.5 provides strength, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability and UV resistance to any project making it ideal for most outdoor and marine environments. Due to the weave and finish of Top Notch 11.5, it is mildew resistant and does not noticeably shrink, stretch or sag.
In addition to being one of the best outdoor fabrics, Top Notch 11.5 fabric is easy to sew and maintain! Both sides of this marine fabric are the same, meaning that either side can be exposed to the outside.
This fabric is great marine and outdoor covers, biminis, enclosures, sail bags, tarps, weather cloths and more.
Note: The term denier refers to the fiber thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of textiles and fabrics. Fabrics with a high denier count tend to be thick, sturdy and durable.

I took a chance on the recommendation made by the website and purchased the Top Notch fabric instead of Sunbrella. I am very happy with this fabric, it is more substantial than the Sunbrella fabric. I'm hoping that the heavier fabric will translate into better longevity for our dune buggy bikini top.
