CARE OF YOUR CANVAS TENT
Sep. 19, 2018
As a Canvas Tent Supplier help you learn about canvas tents – “Finished size” of a tent is the size after it is sewn together. Canvas is 100% cotton and cotton shrinks. You should expect your tent to be smaller after the tent has been preconditioned.
Shrinkage – All tents made from natural fibers, like cotton, will shrink and this will affect the “finished size” measurements of the tent. The exact amount of shrinkage is impossible to predict.
Preconditioning your Canvas Tent– In order for your tent to have its own natural water repellency, the tent must be wet down thoroughly to allow the fibers to swell and shrink to a tighter weave.
