How do I convert the weight/sq yard to total fabric weight?
To convert oz/sq yard to total fabric weight use the following formula
- Weight per linear yard = fabric width / 36 * Weight /sq yard * Total length of fabric in yards
(As an example, let's calculate the weight of 7 yards of Harbor-Time. Harbor Time is 62" wide so the weight of 7 yards is 62 / 36 * 11 * 7 = 132.6 oz, or 8.3 lbs.)
