Why not do a search for textile manufacturers or distributors instead. There are a lot of suppliers of heavy polyester cloth, beyond the sail industry. BTW, most sailmakers won't use black dacron for sails...heats up way too much in sunlight. Most of the black canvas like materials you see on boats is Sunbrella.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for your reply,,,,

I understand the sunbrella. I have been using some heavy white 9 oz Dacron sailcloth and it works well but I am in need or some black. I know it is available because I have seen it but just can't find out where to get it,,,,

I have been using all the search engines with not much luck,,,

sailrite has 4oz but I don't see a heavier weight.

What is your application?

Just a wild guess, but I'm guessing they want to make bags out of black sailcloth.

bobmcgov will become famous soon enough
As SF says, it's not generally available as sailcloth above 4oz weight. Here's another source:

Colored Dacron Sailcloth

Only colored sailcloth (true sailcloth) I know in the 9-10 oz range is orange, for storm jibs. Seen tanbark up to 8oz, which is pretty neat.
