Does anyone know where I can find sisal fabric for making scratching posts?
I've tried local fabric stores and online but have had no luck.

Thanks.

I doubt you will find it unless you plan to buy in huge bulk or direct from china which will require a huge bulk also
IMO best bet buy the ones already made with it if that is what you want

try this I made a few and they love them I found the rope at a local hardware store with ease

I bought sisal rope at the local Home Despot. I still have to attach it to the big Cat Tree I built for them.

I saw sisal fabric being used to make scratching and climbing posts on Animal Planet's 'Cats 101'. It was so much easier to use than trying to wrap sisal rope.
I've seen some of the sisal scratching pads and they aren't cheap nor large enough to make a decent height post if you used them.

Sisal carpet isn't cheap by the yard either.
I guess that's a dead end.
I did find some sisal wallcovering online at what looks like a good price; I'm going to order a few square feet and try it out.

Thanks
