Since the weather is absolutely abominable I decided to do a little
snowy day browsing. I found this site and thought it would be a good
idea to pass it along. The wools look to lovely. I don't know if it's a
new site to anyone else, but i enjoyed looking.

I thought everything looked so good. It certainly brightened up a day of
horrible weather for me.
I was looking for wool crepe but fell in love with colors of the silks.
I thought the tartans would be of interest to the kilt makers and future
kilt makers. I don't know if they're authentic but they are good looking.

They don't have to be authentic tartans, especially for
making a practice kilt.  The first one I made was from
Pendleton wool.  Nothing authentic about it, especially the
selvedges, which on a real adult's kilt *are* the hem.  The
Scottish mills produce a selvedge edge which has tight
threads and follows the sett exactly.  The Pendleton
selvedge introduced some extraneous colors for some reason,
and a few of the carried threads were very loose. Fine for a
child's competition kilt, because you plan on a hem which
can be let down later.  But for an adult there is no turned
up hem.
