Just look at the thickness of the yarn!

That's the lighter of the two shades she is current weaving. You can see the darker one (and catch up on her fascinating insights into the process) at:

Still lobbying for trucker and/or field shirt in that wool.......
That's probably not going to happen, but the trucker will be coming back in the autumn in very heavy corduroy, and perhaps with brass buttons — lost-wax replicas of our horn buttons — if I can convince the chap that makes them to ... make them.

Oh! And, do you know what color brass favours, by the way? Mossy dark green, I think he said.

Ha!

Sadly the cloth is already with me and is not mossy dark green. We have gone instead with two different shades on the brown spectrum (my favourite spectrum).
