Canvas horse rug Australian Tearstop Canvas 14oz waterproof and UV resistant.
This rug comes only in Blue tearstop.
Price will be determined by the size you choose.
Our canvas horse rugs are manufactured using tough tearstop 14oz canvas which is durable, long lasting rug, waterproof and UV resistant.
Our rugs are unlined. We believe this provides more versatility to weather conditions. Our canvas rug can be used in summer to protect your horse from the heavy rains, especially for the northern wet season, keeping your horse dry without over-heating. Leading up to winter the one canvas rug is all that is required and in mid winter under rugs can be used for additional warmth.
We ourselves put a canvas rug over the summer weave rug (or combo) at night and this is more than sufficient for most horses in Queensland. Show horses may require a kersey rug underneath instead of the summer weave.
All our rugs are manufactured with quality fittings, designed to last.
What is Tearstop?
Tearstop canvas is woven using a strong thread, usually a corespun thread which is then woven into the warp (material length) and weft (material width) of the canvas at certain intervals. These intervals will vary depending on the textile manufacturer.
Corespun threads, sometimes referred to as “polycore” or “cotton core”, are made by wrapping a staple polyester or cotton wrapper around a continuous filament bundle of polyester fibers during spinning, and then plying these yarns into a sewing thread. The continuous filament polyester core makes up approximately 60% of the thread construction.
This core contributes to:
- Higher strength per size (higher tenacity)
- Greater uniformity in size, strength and other physical characteristics
- A higher initial modulus or resistance to stretching contributing to better loop formation and reduced seam puckering.
- Better ply security – fewer unravel type thread breaks
- Superior abrasion resistance & durability
