I got some of Kolecho's recent navy run of Rangoon. I believe it's 8-9 oz. I had it made into a suit that I haven't worn yet. So I can't report on it's performance in warm weather. I would say that it seems a little less airy than fresco at the same weight. It has a softer, spongier feel but with equal shape-holding properties. It drapes really nicely. The navy is great because in good light it's actually bit mottled. I was impressed that Minnis got that kind of depth into...

^ Well, Patrizio called it a challis. I'm just repeating his description. There could be a translation issue of course. It is more loosely woven than other challis I have. But definitely wool--quite soft and airy though.
