|Yacht "Reverie" Visiting Australia|
|After 40,000 nautical miles at sea, we have developed some opinions on products which can be relied upon to protect us from wind & rain.|
|Our covers start with the finest fabric
available in the yachting world.
Sunbrella® is 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric. Sunbrella withstands sun, wind and rain while remaining beautiful for years. The secret to its long lasting colour is found in the solution-dying process which locks colours into the acrylic fibres, so they can't wash out or fade.

|The water repellent process applied in the
finishing process of Sunbrella® was found effective for years at sea aboard our yacht.
Slightly less strenuous testing of cria covers aboard our young alpacas has yet to
uncover a wet cria.
Sunbrella® fabrics, if kept clean, will not mildew. An inherent characteristic of acrylic fibre is that it will not support the growth of mildew, as a natural fibre will. Mildew will however grow on any surface that is dirty, so to keep your Sunbrella® fabric from mildewing you must keep your fabric clean.
As added protection for the young cria, we line our covers with a polar fleece material.
Buckles and straps are also made of marine grade nylon, to ensure years of trouble free use without the annoyance of rusting buckles.
