Knitted Shade Cloth

What's the Difference?

Woven is constructed from woven polypropylene. It is about 30% heavier than knitted and typically costs about 30% more. The lifespan is about 10-12 years. Woven is more plastic looking than knitted and has a distinct grid of horizontal and vertical lines.

Woven cloth does have two major drawbacks. It is only available in black and will unravel if a hole occurs. Primary application is for greenhouses.

Knitted is made from knitted polyethylene and has an expected life of 7-10 years. More cloth-like to the look and feel and has threads running in various directions. Due to the construction, it will not unravel if cut or if a hole occurs.

We sell about 95% knitted due to the variety of colors and strength of the fabric. Hundreds of uses including back yard shade, windbreak, deer fencing, aviary and carports.
