12 oz Gray Waxed Canvas

5 Reviews

Durable and water-resistant, waxed canvas is our favorite fabric for bag making. This particular waxed canvas has a dry waxed finish with a firm handle and develops a distressed, worn-in appearance. 

Our fabric is sold by the ½ yard. (1 Quantity = ½ yard)

NOTE: Orders of one yard or more will be folded, resulting in creases, unless the $15 surcharge for rolled fabric is added below.

WAX: A blend of petroleum jelly, mineral oil, and paraffin. No animal by-products. Contains post-consumer waste products. Biodegradable.


BOLT WIDTH: 59” / 150 cm


WEIGHT: 12 oz, 400g/m² (post-wax weight)


OPACITY: Opaque


CHARACTERISTICS: This fabric has a dry waxed finish with a firm handle, resulting in a distressed appearance when handled.

FOLDED OR ROLLED?

FOLDED: Waxed canvas will be cut in one continuous piece whenever possible. As a default, the fabric will be folded, resulting in creases that will blend into the fabric with use and can be lessened with a hair dryer. Click here to learn more about waxed canvas care.  


ROLLED: If you’re purchasing at least one continuous yard of waxed canvas and would like to guarantee your fabric is rolled, add a $15 shipping surcharge to your order by clicking the checkbox below. This covers carrier fees for packages longer than 22". If ordering multiple colors of waxed canvas, this charge only needs to be added once.


ADD $15 Surcharge for Rolled Fabric

Waxed canvas is a densely-woven cotton fabric that has been saturated with wax, giving it an extra layer of protection against the elements. This heritage material has been long-loved for its durability, natural water-resistance, and rugged character. Waxed canvas shows marks and creases that blend into a lovely weathered patina over time, similar to leather. Klum House hand-selects the very best waxed canvas from mills in Scotland and the United States.

    Always good quality

    Love your waxed canvas. Sews like butter and is very durable. The 12 oz. is perfect for the bags I make. Hoping for more colors in this weight.

    Love Klum House's Waxed Canvas

    This waxed canvas is super easy to sew with just a standard sewing machine. For seam lines, it folds better than any fabric I know of. And best of all, if I make a mistake and have to rip out a seam, the seam ripper just glides through it without tearing the canvas. I wish they had prints too instead of just solids.

    I bought this waxed canvas to make a shop work apron for my husband. It turned out great and he is happy with it.

    Amazing!

    I really liked this one! The color is a true charcoal but can be confused for a dark blue too. Very easy to work with . Only wish it was slightly thicker .

    Nice surprise!

    I was a little hesitant to purchase this color but glad I did! Loved the color! Wish it was slightly thicker as printed fabric can be seen on the inside .
