I've seen your Navy Houndstooth, and I've seen @kolecho

As you've commissioned a few runs of Fresco now I'd be interested to hear your more specific comments about what is and isn't possible.   

By scaling I mean the size of the pattern. I can enquire, but if the scale can't be at least a certain size, I'm not sure it's worth running.

Let's see how "Fresco Lite" turns out.

I hope the time they're putting into this means there will be more than two shades of blue and three shades of grey.

The fact that they bid farewell to Rangoon and turned attention to high supers Italian made cloth speaks volumes.

Nobody's doing a really excellent plain weave panama nowadays. Nobody.

I'm pretty sure there are some good plain weaves. If you meant lightweight plain weave, then maybe.

sorry, that's redundant-- "Plain weave panama."

The problem is that ten years ago, we were spoiled with/by a number of good options.

The Scabal Smart book was great.

It's got nothing to do with complexity, but with weave. The essence of Fresco is that it's a plain weave: both warp and weft go one over, one under. A herringbone requires that you can have a warp that goes two over and under, otherwise you cannot achieve the diagonal effect.

Oh my gay, that stuff is seriously over priced. I'm done.

What's the difference between that fabric and the usual LL? I thought the other LL stuff was already supposed to be best quality? (Unless the new stuff has cashmere or something?)

If I recall correctly, it's a 16oz lambs wool/angora mix, hence the increased cost.

Ah okay, so a heavier knockoff of the moonbeam for 2-3x the price? (being semi-facetious, but still)

I'm going to start my own cloth club!!!

But to be fair the 100 pounds pr. meter is the price without VAT, no? For me, living within the EU, the price is always multiplied by 1,2 when payment is made to Lovat.
