Quantity portions

Hi, I'm trying to set up a new store.  We sell fabric.  If I have quantity 15 (15 yards of fabric), is there a way to set it up so that the customer can order a portion of a yard without the different sizes set up as variations?  For instance, Betty wants to buy 1/2 yard of fabric, so now we have 14.5 yards available.

You could set up your variant as your smallest unit (0.5 yard?) and set your variant inventory quantity to what you have in stock (in your smallest unit, so 15 yards would be 30 0.5 yards). Then the customer would use the quantity input to specify how much they want.
