I understand that. That's what the tailor said and I am inclined to believe it.Have you done this? Are you familiar with this type of wool lining? Can you speak to its qualities versus horsehair? Can a horsehair canvas not be dyed to a darker color?
I posted this in the cloth thread too, but will duplicate here so anyone with knowledge can chime in: What kind of interlining have you guys used on commissioned fresco/crispaire jackets? I ordered a full canvas jacket from a new operation a few months ago and just went to the first fitting. I noticed the interlining they were using was black, which is not something I am used to.
