- May 3, 2006I generally call in my orders and spoke with the owner, sorry can't
think of his name. Anyway we were both very impressed with the momentum
fabric and he said he's used it in down bags. I'm admittedly new to
sewing and fabric so I can compare it to others I haven't worked with.
All of the online fabric places I found have very helpful people that
know there products well. I'd give them a call and see what they think.
Most will send free samples as well. The other fabric I was looking at
was similar to what's used for rain gear. As it turned out the weight
was just to high for what I needed.

any experience with this stuff?
