3 season will depend on where you live but Crispaire makes up very nice, sportcoat or suit.My go to workhorse H&S now is the City of London stuff. 13-14oz. Really nice, great feel and drape to the fabric and nice colors. Classic Worsted is perfectly fine also. You can't go wrong with either.

Not sure which cashmere you mean but it would probably have been sold as 3 3/8. I don't recall ever doing 8cm cashmere ties...
How is your madder project coming along or has that been shelved?
dieworkwear made a post about it but basically ancient madder dye was extracted from specific plants in a manner which has been considered environmentally damaging and no longer done. So a true, historical ancient madder silk is no longer made. Ancient madder ties are still made though, using synthetic methods (I'm paraphrasing here from dieworkwear).
