Weight Conversion Table

Fabric is generally measured either in metric grams, producing GSM (grams/square meter), or, in countries that employ imperial measurements, ounces (oz), producing the measurement of OZ (ounces/square yard). A higher number means a heavier fabric. It’s important not to confuse these numbers as ‘product weights‘.
Fabric weight is usually in the 2.5-18 oz range, and depends on the type of material used to produce it, the weave used, and the thickness of the fibre. It is measured in grams per meter (gsm), or ounces per yard (oz). Typically, lighter weight fabric is more appropriate for the summer, and heavier for the winter.
