Where does one buy good wool these days? Probably mostly lighter weight for summer garb?
On-line or off?

I suspect you'd have to buy on-line...

Online. JoAnn's doesn't carry wool, and Fabric Place has closed. You might randomly find woolen remnants someplace like Sewfisticated but I woudldn't bet on it.

I'm not a big wool buyer, but for linen I can happily suggest Sewing Central (Pennsic dba: Merlion's Tail).

Over the last 3 years I've bought from Pennsic, from the Pendelton outlet, Dorr Woolen Mill, in Guild, NH, and one piece from eBay. I hate to buy wool I can't see first.

Do you know what weight the wools are? Are we talking coating for cloaks or ightweight for clothes or???

The stuff they have on the website, I don't know. They say it's for suits and dresses, so lighter weight. I go once a year when we vacation at Sunapee, which won't be until after the war this year.

At the store, they have much more wool, and a good deal of it cheaper. They also have a wonderful bargain bin: one yard cuts of all sorts of stuff, for much less money. There are always many pieces of the same wool, so one can piece together enough for an outfit - provided the pattern works with 1 yard bits.
