Re: good weight for linings?
- Hi all :-)
Newbie question here: Is 5 oz. linen too heavy for use as a lining fabric?
(I have some originally intended for garb, and it's very nice :-) I've got
some tropical-weight wool and such that are about that weight themselves...
it would seem that anything heavier would be too much for lining, but much
thinner (such as 3.5 oz "hanky" weight) would be too lightweight to do the
job? Or am I on the wrong track here? The intended garb is medieval era --
linen kirtles, linen and tropical wool houppelandes, a sideless surcote or
two (please excuse me if my use of the terms is incorrect; so much to learn
and so little brain space left to fill ;-) ...
thanks for any guidance, take care,
