Pink and Purple 1.1 DWR
I am looking for Pink and Purple 1.1 DWR or any lightwieght pink and purple fabric to make quilts out of. I have scoured the internet and can seem to find it. I have found Purple in 1.1 DWR but never Pink. I have managed to find 1.9 oz and might just use that, anyone know the finished wieght of 1.9oz?If someone knows where to source some from let me know.
I've never seen purple and pink in 1.1 DWR or non-coated either -- although you can find both in 1.3 oz. silnylon, so it must exist! I have, however, seen both colors in 1.9 oz weight at Hancock fabrics. Had a purple hammock for a while out of 1.9. I believe the finished fabric weight on that is 2.2 oz per square yard.

I was just in Seattle Fabrics today (live 5 minutes away... Convenient/dangerous for my wallet) and they did not have any pink ripstop.
I gotta go check out Seattle Fabrics some day. I go up there occasionally but don't get to downtown for a few hours. Traffic is so horrible.
I had looked at rainshed and they came the closest with 1.4 oz in purple and 1.8 oz in pink. Looks like that might be the best I can do.Its funny that it is relatively easy to find 1.4 pink and purple sil but not the uncoated.
