Type 14 Tyvek® is soft and fabric-like, offering excellent barrier protection. Type 16 Tyvek® has a pin-perforated structure with high air and moisture permeability at the expense of lower tear strength and barrier properties. Both styles are easily sewn on any conventional sewing machine. Click Here for instructions on sewing Tyvek.

Also, I haven't check but what type fo Tyvek house wrap is sold at Home Depot?
