fiberglass weave

I have run out of fiberglass because of an error and I am unable to locate the same weave I was using. It was 6oz. with approx. 30 strands per inch. I can only find a loose weave 6oz at the local boat shops, with about half that number of strands. Is this an acceptable cloth? I'm worried about the appearance of the finish. Thank you, David S.
