    Harrisons flannel for Medtech. Soon to be funded via NSM.

    I think ed has the PoW which I recall him calling the Camilla Parker Bowles of fabric. Kinda yawn inducing, but in a good way. The solid gray-brown is really nice.

    So where does one buy Harrisons directly?

    Thanks again, K!

    That gray-brown looks amazing.

    Swatch numer 39174.

    Isles Textiles in NY. Kristine is very helpful, and they receive three weekly shipments from England so delivery is prompt.

    Does Isles also sell Lesser? Am quite tempted to proceed with them.

    Not totally sure yet. Likely a bunch to Peter Lee since he does CMT. I'm in no rush though and expect them to last for years.

    Many thanks - you should really be set for a while.

    Awesome stuff. Looking at your collection I realize I have several of those and I wonder how many SF members we could get in a room wearing a jacket or suit made of the same cloth. I have to think it is in the double digits. [​IMG]

    This looks like some kind of delicious plush flannel sandwich.

    I was hesitant to pull the trigger on 0300 based on the swatch but it is a lot better when you look at the whole length. More flannel and fresco incoming,need some stripes now.
