PB:  I'm not opposed to the idea, but when I start thinking of a 13oz. worsted, my mind inevitably starts to wander towards flannels.

That makes sense.

If all goes well with this run, I would definitely organize another, especially since we're not looking to markup the price. My thoughts for the second run are a grey nailhead fresco, much like the one manton posted a pic of a while back, but we're getting ahead of ourselves.

I think the angora mix is a great idea Slew, will definitely pitch that to minnis. As soon as the samples arrive, I will post pictures and organize an e-mail to receive subscriptions and eventually payment, but lets first wait an see how the test comes out. Glad to see there is a lot of interest, it would be great to create unique fabrics that aren't readily available and not have to pay an upcharge for them.

Wait, was that grey one Manton got made up by Solito fresco? I didn't think a nailhead fresco was possible.

If you did the nailshead first, I'd switch from a weak maybe to a strong definitely, in case you're planning this around me.

I'm in for both...

With fresco, birdseye is impossible.

Nailhead is quite possible.

Not to derail the conversation, but does anyone know of a good source for something in a Russell plaid?

Robert Noble (#S1505 0101) and Minnis Alsport (#2404) for a heavier version

I don't think there is anything quite like what you want in any current book. If Dormeuil still makes Tonik, I would check there, some of the patterns are close, but remember that's mohair. Also, it is crazy expensive.

I don't think this is so

Dugdale has a few nice patterns in their new Magdale Tweed collection.
