Is there anyway to reduce or eliminate the marbling effect of Sunbrella material to is creating when working with it?  It is particularly noticeable in the lighter shade materials such as cadet grey.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Keri,
This is a normal phenomenon and it is nothing more than the way light reflects from the surface of the material. The material color is not changing. Unfortunately the only thing you can do is to use the fabric item. As it softens over time the visual marbling or "crazing" goes away entirely. And you are right that only a few colors really exhibit this tendency - cadet grey is one.

Best Regards,
Matt Grant
