    It is about 12-13 oz, very soft cloth. Have you made up the blue donegal?

    Not yet. Have been hoarding it. Going to have my tailor try another fabric before giving him the thorn proof donegal.

    Thanks buddy! I still have another that I got from you I haven't make up. It's a great cloth.


    WW Chan's ladies section. The details are amazing.

    LL just announced that they have the 60 meters required for production! At 450 GBP/meter x 3.5 meters ~ $2500 USD just for material. :eek:

    Hard to justify the cost but I'm not sure if it'll ever be made again. . .

    Ditto. I could never ever be able to come close to affording that. Their regular fabrics are already expensive enough at 120GBP/m.

    120 GBP? Did they just go up from 100 GBP? That's what I recall from the last round.
