Atually I have heard of doing just that
thomson's on canvas makes some sense (both are celulose) it would probably halt
the cotton's absorbative ability.

flamabilty (increase or decrease) and water repellency would be my concerns.
My guess on flame retardancy is that it would be increased or remain the same
else TWS would be a fire hazard on decks where people grill
