Sam,

All its doing is spreading the load across a larger area for impact resistance. It is not a primary structural fabric. For this propose, you shouldnt need directional fabric as you are not trying to protect against a principle strain but simply transfer load across the primary fibers. This fabric is basically acting like a filler to help increase the ability of the matrix material to spread load to the different fibers.

Its pretty neat actually and sounds like a great thing to add to booms and LEs!
