Im working on some "roofing" for my tall tent which might keep the sun off of me just a bit more. Anyhow, I was looking for reflective fabric like this photography lighting reflector:

I need t his to be in the types of quantity like one buys normal fabric as well as someething which can be sewn. Suggestions for this kind of quantity?

Many burners swear by Aluminet Shade Cloth. My rules for buying shade cloth are to buy knit weave (it doesn't unravel very much if it gets a hole). Buy the highest shade % and get grommets every 2 feet with 2 on each corner.
Here is a link that can tell you about aluminet. http://www.gothicarchgreenhouses.com/shade_aluminet.htm
I buy all my shade cloth from a nursery supply 4 miles from my house so I have no idea how this place rates.


Oh I see you need fabric. :oops: Joanne Fabric? Perhaps? Maybe heat resistant silver ironing board fabric?

Your tent photo is aluminized mylar - not good in wind, except taped on all edges to cover car windshields. Try rosebrand.com, they also have wide fabrics. 3d silver screen goo might be something to look into.

Solid aluminet or silvicool.

There was a camp with glued down mylar.
