Perhaps email the nice folks at Gossamer Gear and see if they'll sell you their 0.99 oz./yd² spinnaker for DIY projects? I would be surprised if they wouldn't.

Other than that, I think sells spinnaker but not I believe that not all spinnaker is create equal and depending on your intended purpose other materials may not be sufficiently waterproof.

Ken if you scroll down, on their home page, until you find ultra lightweight fabrics. They sell Ultra-Sil Silicone Ripstop Nylon Fabric. It is double coated, wider, and lighter than sil nylon

Ultra-sil is silnylon.

Yeah, thruhiker and prolite gear are both out of stock. I guess I will send gossamer an e-mail and see what they say. I'm looking for something waterproof. I would like to make a tarp...

However, 'UltraSil' may be less waterproof than 'silnylon'.
