That's really helpful to understand, thanks Jafo!

I might also start a new thread to explore the theme of pros and cons of each cover material in more depth...

Every few years concerns about vinyl fabrics outgassing toxins arise. We have many customers with chemical sensitivities who have specific concerns about toxins as well. There are many different types and qualities of vinyl fabrics available on the market, some of which are stable and others that are less stable and outgas. However, we have been assured that the top-quality fabrics that we utilize are safe and do not release toxins under normal use and conditions. Health and safety are not only valid concerns for customers, but also for production staff.

I would recommend also considering fire safety when choosing fabrics for a yurt. A flame retardant that is incorporated into the manufacturing process of a fabric is better than a coating that is applied onto the fabric, where it can wear (or wash) off over time and potentially expose you or the surrounding area to chemicals (as well as reduce fire resistance of the fabric).
