Hey there,

Does anyone know of a good source for material that blocks the UV light. I'm canadian so a Candian source would be best.

There are some companies that make the clothing out of this type of material but the styles are really awful. I would much rather buy the material and make my own tops.

Sewingtiger, today I ordered a couple of shirts for my son. They aren't the most attractive shirts, that is for sure. I hadn't thought about being able to buy the fabric. Judee, thanks for the links, I'll have to remember this post!
