I want to build a canvas tent. Something along the lines of a Snow trekker tent
. Has anyone purchased large amounts of canvas? I've heard that Egyptian Cotton is the best kind to get, are there sources to purchase this material? And do you have any other recommendations for procuring canvas? What is a satisfactory thread count? Also, is it feasible to treat the canvas for mildew resistance?
Also we're looking resources that have plans for wall tents or pyramid tents. Any references to books or literature on tent plans would be appreciated.
PS: Winter Camping is Really Fun!
