I just ordered some from Track of the Wolf. Great company. There are plenty of others such as Dixie Gun Works.

Onlinefabricstore.net. An assortment of cotton ticking, canvas duck, linen. And they will sell you a 6x6 inch sample for a buck if you want to put calipers on it before committing to several yards of the stuff,

Not ticking very often, though I have found it, but you could check thrift/resale stores for usable patching.
You get a few odd looks, picking through w/a micrometer in hand, but I find good stock there. The best stock is usually on the women's side.

After you get it, burn a small piece. If there is any plastic in it, there will be little hard pieces of plastic in the ashes. Cotton burns all the way up to grey ash. 100% cotton isn't always 100%.

That's pretty thick. Try using a larger ball and .015" ticking. I believe you will get better shooting results.

Walmart. Ticking with golden/tan stripes is about .022
