Made from selected cotton yarn and coated with acid-free acrylic titanium priming. Yankee is a medium weight cotton duct with medium texture and an excellent tooth. Great for lightweight murals and large paintings. All Fredrix® Canvas is primed in the USA which allows us to have complete control over the priming process. How the paint reacts to the artist canvas surface is what really matters. 140 years of experience has given us the knowledge and tools to create superior primed canvas of high archival quality.
