X-Cart doesn't support fractional qties, it needs to be customized accordingly and we have done such projects actually (sorry, cannot give samples other than listed at due to our privacy policy)

But I come up with one idea for you: you say you want to sell by yards and 1/2 yard of the minimal possible. What if you specify in your web shops that a "1 item" is 1/2 yard? Thus 2 items will be 1 yard, 3 items 1 and a half yards, etc. You can replace label "item" with "1/2 yard" in X-Cart front-end so it will items for X-Cart code but 1/2 yard for your web-site visitors.

Does it work for you?

Sincerely yours,
