      Estimating Fabric Yardage on a Bolt: A guide to make sure there is enough yardage for your project, just count the layers of fabric wrapped around a rectangular bolt. For a medium-heavy fabric,such as cotton & burlap, 2 wrapped layers equals approximately one yard. For thinner fabrics, such as silk or lace,3 wrapped layers equals approximately one yard. Any of you have an idea of fabric on bolt rolls ??
