suits, kind of nubbly textured. I doubt it's period but even if it
is, it screams modern. I think you'd be safe with challis. I've
never found wool challis for a reasonable price(do you have a
source?), but I've used rayon challis for modern clothes and if it's
the same type of weave, it would be good.
