Reference information:

A very tightly woven cotton fabric made with double warp threads and double weft threads in plain weave. The duck family includes: number duck, army duck, flat duck, ounce duck, sail duck, belting duck, hosepipe duck, boat or bootleg duck, linen duck, shoe duck, plimsoll duck (used for sneakers, track shoes or tennis shoes, wagon cover duck, tent duck and naught duck. A heavy duck cloth made in for tents in India is called dosooty. See dosooty.


Cotton duck (from Dutch doek,"linen canvas"), also simply duck, sometimes duck cloth or duck canvas is a heavy, plain woven cotton fabric. There is also linen duck, which is less often used.

Un saludo.

La lona se clasifica por números y peso:
Numbered duck
If a piece of the cloth 36 inches by 22 inches weighs less than 19 ounces, the cloth is called numbered duck. The grade of numbered duck is calculated by subtracting the weight in ounces of a piece 36 inches by 22 inches from 19. For example, a piece of #5 numbered duck 1 yard by 22 inches would weigh 14 ounces (19 − 14 = 5). The bigger the number, the lighter the cloth.

Numbered duck is nominally made in weights from 1 to 12, but numbers 7, 9, and 11 are no longer used. Some typical uses of various weights are:

#1 hammocks, sand bags
#2 hatch paulins
#4 sea bags
#6 large boat covers
