I actually get the fabric from my local fabric "super store". Luckily one of the largest fabric stores in the nation is quite close to me so I just go there. I haven't had luck finding it at somewhere like Joann's...but they might be able to order it for you. It's by a brand called Phifer and they make all kinds of "outdoor shade fabrics". You want the ones with 90% UV blocking. :) Here's a link to the product on their website. Unfortunately they don't sell directly, but this'll give you an idea of what to look for, if nothing else.

Thanks for the compliment too! :)
Thanks, I love anything with spots! Lol Appys, POA's. Although, I could do without the predisposition to ERU.
Thank you for providing the link. Apparently they will ship to Lowe's or Home Depot upon request.
Although, according to their website it says this:
"Quik Shade Screen is a solar/daytime privacy shade product that blocks up to 90% of the sunís heat and glare."
It concerns me as it only says "blocks up to 90% of the sun's heat and glare." It doesn't say anything about blocking the UV rays. And as someone who wears makeup... When an Eye Shadow says it lasts "Up to 8 hours". It doesn't mean it lasts 8 hours, only that it *could* last up to 8 hours". Just a little trick in the wording....
"Blocks up to 90%" Does that mean, (like the eye shadow example) it may really not block 90%, but could?
I hope this does not sound snarky, as it certainly is not.
It's hard to deliver a message/expression through typing.
Really though: You should think about making these. They came out beautifully, and as horse people get more informed about Uveitis, the need for these masks will increase. I remember growing up and seeing horses with ERU, and people never put masks on their horses, only because the information wasn't out there like today.
Thank you again for the link.
Just a thought. I do love Apps and POA's, but for the Appy people dealing with ERU, would you purchase another Appy considering they are more prone to ERU? I realize any breed can get it, but these guys are more prone.
