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 Logo.gif (3855 bytes)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.
