The carpet from www.selectproducts.com is very thin and strechy.

I usually use a spandex backed carpet/micro fleece. I could probably cover a sphere without a seam with that stuff.

Why don't you answer his bloody question instead of just talking up your sphere wrapping skills? Loser.

anyone ever ventured into tweed? and sculpting foam? strecthy and you use the foam as base to great depth and 3-d objects like logos, IMO carpet looks gay, I think that there are finer finishes, its not like your feet are resting on it, ppl spend all this time crunching numbers and building stuff and then cover it in cheap ploy knit crap!!!
