    I want to get a mtm suede A-1 blouson jacket from temple of jawnz, like this one: http://www.styleforum.net/forum/thread/167598/suede-jacket-mtm-jacket-pics-added but I want to have a cashmere lining in it. Something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Luxurious-Black...62?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item2311f16e5e or basically the same idea as these: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_wwgXxAjQedA/TNC0YCieYQI/AAAAAAAAGMM/pIg8AhPK-no/s1600/Dents+Peccary.jpg

    Basically, I have been extremely curious as to where I could acquire 2-3 yards of cashmere fabric (like the lining fabric in the links) that would be suitable for this project.

    Thank you so much,
    Ben

    you only want the cashmere in the body. not the sleeves or across the yoke.

    Cashmere knit might be hard to find and very expensive.
    I have some woven cashmere that i have for shirts. or a pair of pajamas for the right person.
    this could serve your purpose.
    the cashmere will add a lot of bulk to a slim fitting suede jacket

    cheaper to buy a cheap uniqlo cashmere sweater and have it cut up
