I really enjoyed going through those Smith's swatches. I chose the 14oz all wool midnight blue because that had my favorite weave, but one of the MB mohair was a close second. I still have the swatches somewhere.

How much does Harrison's go for?

As an insider, I can tell you that Harrisons and Lesser prices are much2 less then that unless your talking about the Golden Bale from Lesser



Harrisons Saltire goes for 650 euros, about $ 860 per meter bigstar[1].gif

I assume you are not referring to the original Tonik, which I believe was discontinued some time ago. Dormeuil replaced it with Tonik 2000, or something like that, which has a much lower % of mohair. Is that what you are talking about?
