1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A lightweight Donegal-- either genuine, or one of the worsteds (Glorious 12th, Worsted Alsport, etc.) might work.

    I have a flannel sit in that colour. Flannel would also work as a sports coat. Perhaps Minnis 510038 Flannel

    I'm looking for a brown donegal like the one on the top left of this sample card. This is the wildest I'd go with tweed so dots should be small and the brown should be that pale. Do you happen to know who distributes Magee donegals? The ones from W. Bill are similar but none are exactly like this one and colours tend to be more vivid.
