    Where to find Ecology cloth?

    Do any of you know where I can find Ecology cloth, or if it is still available? I use to buy it by the bolt. It looked like natural muslin but was such good quality. It was not see through and felt so good you just wanted to fondle it. LOL It was great for quilts, curtains or anything you wanted to make with it. 100% cotton. Thanks for any help.

    That sounds like Roc-lon.

    No, it is nothing like the Roc-Lon I just ordered. I ordered 6 yards of Roc-Lon, the most expensive that JoAnn had listed, for a wholecloth quilt. It is sooo thin you can read the newspaper through it. I washed it hoping the shrinkage would help but it didn't. Needless to say, I can't use it unless I break down and try it for a backing. Such a waste.

    Ecology cloth

    Sauders Fabric store 681 S Muddy Creek Rd Denver, PA 17517 (717) 336-2664 used to have it. I just contacted them and they are out of it. They would have to order it if I wanted. It sells for $3.99. They used to give you 10% if you spend $100 or more or bought the whole bolt. Last few years I have been buying it from "Goods Store" in Pa. They have a chain, I am not sure which one I contacted but if one sells it the rest should do too. (717) 354-4026, (717) 786-9028, (717) 949-2663, (717) 733-7356 - ask for fabric department and ask for ecology cloth. Last time (few years ago) I paid $3.49 a yard. I will have to call them soon myself, I am running out of ecology cloth.

    I would keep it to use instead of batting inside a summer weight quilt, for the foundation fabric for a foundation pieced quilt, or for a practice quilt sandwich for FMQing.
