Back to lightweight flannel... this is the response I got when I inquired about how it will hold up compared to heavier flannel:
"I have been advised by our cloth designer that the light weight flannel drapes and holds creases well, like the heavier flannel."
Older one was defensive at first, but since he's still a kitten at heart (the younger one is also fairly persistent), they got along rather quickly. Now they're inseparable and sleep together, with the older one acting as a big bro.
Anyone know of a good houndstooth in sand? Preferably wool. Fox Bros currently offers a lightweight flannel (9oz).
