    In yards.... yeh so if you want to use it you have to convert... real fucking helpful

      Agreed, but how difficult it is? You should know the conversions anyway. 1yd = 0.9144meters.

      Go for one to one and have a bit extra. Not so hard buddy.

        you buy fabric per Meter. not yard in Australia. you cant buy 9.1m you need to round up to 10m

        annoying

          Annoying? Maybe. Trivial? Definitely. I'm sure they would let you buy 9.1meters if you asked nicely, Hell, I'm pretty sure they will cut to size whatever you ask for or risk losing the sale.

      How rude is this person. Someone goes to all the trouble to put this information up on the web, and you abuse them because the measurements are in imperial. So what, use a calculator, or just say 7 yds = 7 metres. close enough; but you will have some left over.
