I made, for a friend of mine, a set of archery clothes for a French archer
in the 14thish c. The shirt was a heavy (5.5oz) linen. Saturday's event
was rather warm and very sunny.
She came up to me at some point in the middle of the day and said, "wow,
this is great! you said this is the heavy stuff? Oh man, I gotta make
stuff with that other linen you got for me. This is too cool."
Then I told her it gets softer with every wash and she was even
one piece at a time.......
