Re: [SCA-JML] Fabric
- Ohh I fully understand that no bra thing, I can get away with not
wearing one, but it feels uncomfortable. and by the way cotton isn't
always thin, you can get it in heavier weight weaves, but if you used
cotton to line a wool outer that might work well for you. IE using
the cotton to line a heavier often scratchier but warmer material...
especially if you have to go bra-less.... Like a midnight run to the
bathroom..... Just saying! If your in Atlantia look me up we could
do a sewing weekend/week for you if you wanted. I do have an
industrial sewing machine so I could help you quickly make whatever it
is you need garb-wise.

Greetings from Solveig! I don't believe that wool was regularly used in Japan. Consider using hemp, linen, ramie, silk, or cotton for that matter. Japanese clothing can be quite warm.

- I know it wasn't (wool) used often in Japan, however it is available
over here more regularly then the others or is substantially less
expensive. Plus I was just grabbing a couple of fabrics I'm more used
to sewing and their properties. I agree your list is more authentic,
sadly we often have to go with what we can find/afford :(
