50% Black Knitted Shade Cloth (72" width, sold by the foot)

Keep Your Plants or Yourself Cool

Price is by the foot. There is a 10' minimum, and after that, order in 5' increments only.

This black knitted shade cloth is made from polyethylene with U.V. stabilizers for long life. Our customers love this knitted fabric shade cloth because the cut edges do not fray.

  • Toughest of all shade fabric styles. Tear resistant, springy and stretchy.
  • You can add grommets, make pipe pockets or pinch pleats, or double stitch edges if you wish.
  • This is our medium density knitted shade cloth, blocking 50% of the sunlight.

Also sold in 70% and 30% density versions.

  • UV stabilized, rot proof, this black polyethylene has a life of 5-7 years, more if stored out of the sun during periods of non-use.
  • General field guidelines: for vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, use 30% shade cloth in areas with very hot summers
  • For lettuce, spinach and cole crops, use 47% in hot areas, 30% in northern or coastal climates.
  • Use 50-60% for shade-loving plants.
  • Shade cloth is also used over greenhouses in summer to reduce the need for expensive ventilation.
  • Maximum shade density (80%) is often used over patios and skylights to cool people as well as plants.
  • Great for winter pool covers.

Returns accepted on un-used, full rolls only.

    Shading my Tomatoes

    I used this to shade my tomatoes from the brutal late afternoon sun. I saw production, and blossom drop drastically reduce after using this.

    Great so far

    I haven't had this outside for a full season so can't speak to durability but it appears to be high quality and well-made, no issues with unraveling. Right now I've been using it to cool my soil to get beds ready for fall planting, and it's working great.

    Very pleased

    I am experimenting with growing lettuce through the summer in SE Tennessee, by using heat-tolerant varieties and shade cloth. This shade cloth is of a strong and good quality. I am very pleased. My lettuces are thriving.
