    Beat me to it...

    $25.

    I might be interested if I care for the shade.

    16oz is the lowest I'd go for flannel.

    I would have thought beige with a lot of grey dust and the odd grass stain. But there are doubtless different flavors. If the existing donkey samples are a little too grey, a mottled fawn would be perhaps more useful.

    Some things I have in stock

    Donkey flannel chalkstripe

    [​IMG]

    Worsted tan flannel 12/13 ounce

    [​IMG]

    Taupe and brown houndstooth 11 ounce

    [​IMG]

    Don't know how well the colors will render from these iPhone pics

    This has more olive in it but is a great color close to donkey from this book.

    What's the color previous to this one? That looks a little more closer to the mark in this photo.

    Add me to the list. I would be in for a suit or trouser length depending on the shade.

    Yes, it's good, hardy cloth - nothing fancy, similar in spirit to Dugdales. Sometimes also sold under the Groves & Lindley banner.
