Photos in sunlight posted. I am leaning towards 1938.

Does it have the properties of linen? I have had some hemp before and it seems to crush less than linen (not a problem BTW). Does the wool help to smooth wrinkles?

I think so, I crumpled it and now the swatch is wrinkled. I think the wool helps with the drape. But I am not fabric expert. E.T. might better advise.

So how are we doing this? Do we have to agree on one or can different numbers be combined? In any case, I"d be very interested in 2.5m of the 1934.

You can get what you like. There are no minimums for the fabrics that have to be met.

I'm afraid I'm not that familiar with hemp either.

1937 is a little lighter than 1938, but it also looks like it's less saturated—is that other people's opinion, and is the how it appears in person?

Correct 1937 is a bit lighter than 1938. I find that swatches can be deceiving. When the actual fabric is in hand, it tends to be lighter. IMHO this has been my experience. Cotton is another story. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

Weird, but true. I've learnt to veer towards slightly darker shades given this discrepancy.

I don't own any hemp/wool blends, but I have some hemp, hemp/cotton, and linen/wool. I agree w/ meister that hemp wrinkles less than linen, but just a little less. Everything else that linen is, hemp seems a little more so (crisper, more durable, and better at managing temperature and moisture than cotton). In my limited exp. w/ wool/linen blends, they seem to be exactly what you'd expect: between wool and linen for temperature and wrinkles. I like the unusual texture too.

Any news on other colors, B?

Regarding the shade choice above, there's another reason to err on the dark side, imo: Linen and hemp tend to fade faster than wool, at least ime. Maybe that's just because they're worn harder and cleaned more frequently.

badsha,

 

When do you intend to send in the order? Thinking of ordering some Fresco 506 for a summer blazer, but may hold off.

 

Thanks - ET
