    For utterly safe storage of wool, cashmere and the like - put it in the freezer.

    Just be sure to wrap it well and label it clearly - and tell other family members why it is there, so they don't start to watch you closely to see what other strange things you are going to do.

    I also got some of the smaller patches,one of which is now on a ballcap that is a close comparison to the purple-ish/gray/navy. I'll post a pic later.

    I can say that they are ALL EXCELLENT quality!

    What do you think knife pleated to the yellow would look like? I think to the white is a bit too bold, to the gray is mellow.... You think the yellow would "sorta" look military??

    I'm hoping to have mine pleated to the yellow stripe.

    Using my "old" 13 oz stuff, I did:

    (It REALLY needs to be washed and re-pleated. It HAS taken QUITE a beating, inc. SEVERAL heavy rain storms and LONG drives-> a couple at the same time. Of course, that WAS the plan for that kilt. I'll say that F&K makes good material.)

    I box pleated to the wide blue and a double sett (at Newsome's suggestion). The INITIAL plan was to box pleat to the yellow stripe in the 16 oz stuff. However, I LOVE it to white SO much, I just might to do it again.

    I have at least 2 kilts I HAVE to make first, so I have some time to decide.

    oops! I probably shoulda started this thread in there. Maybe a mod should move it?


    Panache....you're liking the look of the yellow too eh? Great minds think alike...or something like that anyway *rolls eyes*
    I was just thinking that pleated to the white stripe might just be tooo much white, but I'm hoping that at least the yellow is enough of a vertical element to avoid what Rocky refers to as "lawnchair butt."

    After measuring, the full blue box on the 16 oz stuff is 4.5 inches, too wide for a wide box pleat (for me), SO it will be to the yellow (about 2 1/4 inches) for the 16 oz. kilt (I think).


    (This stuff is just a tiny bit wider than the 13 oz.)

    I'm hoping more kilt makers chime in on this. MacWage, make sure you post pics of your handiwork.
