• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Prime Alpaca = Summer fabric?

So I just started reading The Tailor of Panama which I received for Christmas (seems quite good thus far) and the tailor mentions to a new client how Prime Alpaca is one of the best lightweight fabrics for the hot Panama weather as it's soft and breathes very well. I was always under the impression Alpaca wore hot and heavy although in Googling Prime Alpaca it seems like they make it in 8oz.

Is there any truth to this? If so is anyone familiar with it in terms of how it drapes and who carries it, etc? I'd be curious to see some swatches if all this is part of reality and not a fictional spy novel.
