what material do you recommend for making fender socks?

What is the best material for fender covers?

That is a bit of a tough question. Sunbella is thought to scratch your hull over a period of time. Most of the fender covers you see on the market are polyester or acrylic knits. You wouldn't be able to order that material, since it is fabric the manufacture has sourced. If you are thinking of making some fender covers you might try sunbrella's new terry cloth. It is an acrylic and it super soft and should do a very good job protecting you hull and hiding ugly fenders. The trouble is, that it is very expensive. I think it starts at about 84.00 per yard. Sorry the choices aren't terribly great at this point.
