Thank you, Dharma Trading, for making my job harder than it needed to be.

It looks a lot like something that should be oozing blood in a dumpster in a seedy part of town at the beginning of a TV Cop show.

Or part of an alien autopsy.

I think I have figured out a fix -- I have a bo staff that I think will fit through the tube to stiffen it. Still and all... really? At least I know for next time.

A bolt of fabric they folded in half, thereby making it nearly impossible to unroll so I could cut it.

oh. how lame

More or less. I understand why they did it -- a bolt of fabric is difficult to ship. But it made everything Not Good last night. (It doesn't help that I was and am Irritable.)

I think it was a poor decision on their part -- as a practical matter it stresses the fabric on the outside of the fold, and as you say, makes it darn difficult to deal with. Shipping fabric properly is part of their role as a business. Maybe it was an inept employee, not store policy? Good luck.

Almost looks like pizza dough, still wrapped!
